The scientific results carried out in recent years at the faculty are very impressive with more than 100 ISI/Scopus articles/proceedings. Many research works were published in top-quality journals, with high impact factor (IF), i.e. ‘Analysis of unaxial ratcheting behavior and cyclic mean stress relaxation of a duplex stainless steel’, published in the International Journal of Plasticity, IF = 6.358.
The faculty has successfully organized two international conferences on 'Sustainable Development in Civil, Urban and Transportation Engineering'. These conferences attracted the participation of many outstanding scientists from various countries. The proceedings of those conferences have been published on the prestigious publishing systems: Elsevier (Netherlands), IoP (UK), IEEE (USA), Springer (Germany).
