Dr. Ehsan Osloub is a Senior Engineer at Veryst Engineering. Dr. Osloub has an extensive background in computational mechanics, with a specific focus on solid mechanics, structural analysis, structural dynamics, and multiscale analysis. His research has included simulation of the nonlinear dynamic and chaotic seismic response of electrical conductors interconnecting equipment in high-voltage substations. He developed a novel analytical formulation based on B-spline discretization of Kirchhoff rod theory for such simulations, and implemented this method in an efficient computational framework that electrical utilities can use to improve seismic design of substations. This method improves the accuracy of simulations of conductor deformation at significantly lower computational cost.
Dr. Osloub’s consulting focuses on consumer products, medical devices, electrical service providers, and the automotive industry. His experience includes verification and validation of Nitinol stents, failure analysis of consumer products, and simulation of manufacturing processes. He has broad experience with advanced finite element modeling, including large deformation, nonlinear materials, and contact. He has also used multiscale analysis approaches such as molecular dynamics simulation to investigate interfacial friction properties of graphene flakes in nano length scale.
