P. Scott Harvey

Scott Harvey earned his doctoral degree from Duke University in 2013 and joined the faculty of the OU School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science in August 2014.

Scott's research is centered on studying the behavior of nonlinear structural systems. The work may be broadly divided into two foci.  The first is on the mitigation of damage to building contents and the second is on the application of results from constrained optimization to problems of practical engineering importance including nonlinear rolling motion, optimal control with application to controllable-damping systems, and stability and dynamics of slender structural components.  He is currently investigating the loss of stability of dynamical systems with specific attention on aircraft structures.
