Dr Muhammad Ilyas

Assistant Professor (HEC approved supervisor)

Qualifications: PhD
Research Interests: Fiber Epoxy Laminated Composites, Damage Mechanics and Modeling, Application of Finite Element Analysis, Rapid Dynamics, Impact, Crash


Dr. M. Ilyas has completed his PhD from the ISAE-SUPAERO, University of Toulouse, France. His PhD thesis title is “Damage Modeling of Carbon Epoxy Laminated Composites Submitted to Impact Loading”. During his PhD he has developed and implemented constitutive laws for prediction of impact induced damage. His main area of focus is Strain Rate dependent behavior of materials. He has successfully applied Finite Element Analysis technique to predict damage in metallic/nonmetallic materials and structures for aerospace, medical and transportation applications. He is experienced in product development, mechanical design and detailed design for manufacturing of industrial equipment. His professional experience is a balance of industrial research and development. Currently, at GIK Institute he is working on in-house development of mechanical equipment, computational mechanics of manufacturing processes and dynamic properties of composite materials.
