Professor Arash Soleiman Fallah joined OsloMet in 2020. Prior to that he was an Asscoaite Professor in Dynamics and Vibration at Brunel University London, and before that an Assistant Professor in Aeronautics at Imperial College London. He is currently the Vice-Preseident-Scandinavia of the International Society of Multiphysics and the Guest Editor of MDPI-Vibration.
His research interests include: mechanics of composite wind turbine blades, assessment of blast and impact resistant structures, study of fracture in quasi-brittle materials using peridynamics, frequency filtering in phononic metamaterials, lattices and hyperlattices, extended finite element formulation of plated structures, damage and fracture in composites and constitutive visco-elastic, plastic and visco-plastic formulations for metals and composites.
He is a Visiting Senior Research Consultant at ICP-ZHAW and a Visiting Researcher at Imperial College. He is a member of RAeS and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy.
