Stanislav Potapenko is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
Dr. Potapenko’s research interests include elasticity and composite materials. He studies the integral and functional equations of continuum mechanics, and also analyzes cosserate solids. His current research surrounds both fundamental and applied aspects of linear elasticity theories and the implementation of computational methods for the solution of boundary-value problems arising from those theories. In addition, he conducts research on traditional engineering areas such as plates and shells and on classical elasticity inclusion problems. Dr. Potapenko hires graduate students who are interested in conducting research in the areas of solid mechanics and elasticity. He also has several publications about elasticity, which is his predominant area of research.
