Dr. Resat Oyguc is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earthquake Engineering at the Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Disaster Management at Istanbul Technical University. He got his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Yıldız Technical University in Structural Engineering, and Istanbul Technical University in Structural and Earthquake Engineering, respectively. He investigates the response of complex networks and structures under extreme loading conditions. He has also many studies on the safety assessment of structures and evaluation of post-earthquake failures. Specifically, he works on nonlinear inelastic dynamic response simulation for infrastructures. His recent research includes seismic performance assessment of a nuclear reactor building under multiple earthquake excitations considering the degradation effects.
