Heshachanaa Rajanayagam

Interested in extensive experimental works with the main purpose of achieving and comparing the structural properties of steel and composite materials in order to achieve better performance with less annihilation of resources. In addition, currently also interested in the study of Mechanical Behaviour, Structural Stability and Numerical Modelling of Modular and Prefabricated Buildings, Most specifically steel-concrete composite structures and design of their connections.
