Dr. Gurmail Singh Benipal | Department of Civil

Profile

Dr. Gurmail Singh
Benipal
Professor
Department of Civil Engineering
School of Engineering (SoE)
Shiv Nadar University
India
Profile Summary 

The focus of Dr. Benipal's research is on constructing new theories of solids and structures following rational methodology and conceptual analysis. His primary strength is not sophisticated experimental or mathematical skills, but a deep appreciation of the mathematical structure of the mechanics of the mathematically defined system. Dr. Benipal's research is addressed, not to design engineers interested in applications, but to fellow researchers engaged in understanding the physical phenomena. His teaching as well as research are informed by a sense of history, diversity of thought and connections with adjacent domains of knowledge.
