Nik Petrinic
Dipl.Ing. Ph.D. M.A.

Professor Nik Petrinic lectures on topics in Engineering Materials, Solid Mechanics and Structures.  His research activities are focused on the development and integration of experimental and numerical methods for predictive modelling in Impact Engineering.  His particular interests include temperature and strain rate dependent constitutive material behaviour including strain localisation, damage and fracture, as well as contact interaction for multi-body systems.

Professor Petrinic heads Oxford’s Impact Engineering Team which operates within the Impact Engineering Laboratory where corresponding research and technology-transfer projects funded by government agencies and industry are hosted.
