Research Interests

Professor Drugan's general interests lie in the analytical application of continuum mechanics to understand and optimize the mechanical behavior of modern materials. Examples of recent and current topics of interest include nonlinear fracture mechanics of ductile materials (single- and poly-crystalline) and interfaces; nonlocal constitutive models of composite materials; fundamental mechanics modeling of dynamic fragmentation of materials; fracture at the nanoscale; the mechanics of nanoscale shape-memory alloys; and discontinuites and shock waves in solids.
