  About Me

Dr. Cosmin G. Chiorean is Professor of Structural Engineering at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (TUCN), Faculty of Civil Engineering, Romania.

He graduated Faculty of Civil Engineering from TUCN (Civil Engineering section) in 1995 and also Mathematics and Computer Science from Babes-Bolyai in 1999.
In 2000 he got his Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at New University of Lisbon, Faculty of Science and Technology, Lisbon, Portugal. Since 2013 Prof. Chiorean is PhD supervisor in the field of Civil Engineering, he received his habilitation in civil engineering from Technical Univ. of Construction, Bucharest, Romania.

Prof. Chiorean's research interests focus on improving the computational methods for design of civil structures, industrial buildings and bridges.
His research includes both computational and experimental techniques with emphasis on the development and application of advanced numerical methods to solve problems relevant to structural and geotechnical engineering.

He has published over 50 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings and has authored a book entitled "Software applications for nonlinear analysis of 3D frame structures". He is the main developer of a FE software package GFAS (A Finite Element System for Geotechnical Applications) a product of Geostru Corporation.

His representative publications are:
