George D. Manolis

Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Strength of Materials at the Department of Civil Engineering of the Aristotle University

Dr. George D. Manolis is Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Strength of Materials,, at the Department of Civil Engineering of the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. He was educated at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis where he received his BCE in 1976, MSc in 1977 and PhD in 1980. During the period 1980-1990 he was a faculty member, starting as assistant and then as associate professor in 1986, with the Civil Engineering Department at the State University of New York at Buffalo. During that time period, he served as guest professor at the University of Patras, Greece, and at the Technical University of Vienna, Austria and was a member of the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research in Buffalo. He joined the Civil Engineering Department at Aristotle University in 1991 and was promoted to full professor in 1994. He served as the Director of the Division of Structures in 1997-1999 and as the Director of the Master’s program on Earthquake Resistant Design from 2003-2010.

Professor Manolis’ doctoral thesis was on boundary element methods in elastodynamics, a research topic he has pursued to this date. He has also conducted research in the fields of structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, stochastic mechanics, nanomechanics, experimental mechanics and structural health monitoring. During this time, he has participated in over 50 funded research projects. His published work includes 7 books, 10 edited volumes, 166 journal papers, 169 conference papers and 51 technical reports and educational material. He has also participated in software development projects and in open source software for educational purposes. He has an h-index of 34 derived from 4573 citations (Google Scholar) and an h-index of 27 derived from 177 publications and 1958 citations (Scopus)

Professor Manolis has taught courses at both undergraduate and graduate level on Applied Mechanics, Engineering Mechanics, Structural Analysis, Finite Element Analysis, Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering. Finally, he is member of numerous scientific and technical societies and has served on the editorial board of the Shock and Vibration Digest and of the journals Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements, Archives of Applied Mechanics, Earthquakes and Structures and Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering. He is a Fellow of the Wessex Institute of Great Britain (2004), a member of Academiae Europaeae (2001) and a recipient of the Mercator Fellowship (2020).
