Biography

Marija Kušter Marić works at the Structures Department of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Civil Engineering since 2007. Between 2009 and 2013 she worked at the University of Stuttgart Institute for construction materials as a guest scientist. Her main research fields are the durability of structures; service life prediction and numerical simulation of concrete structure degradation due to mechanical (static, dynamic, cyclic loading) and environmental actions (chlorides, winds, etc. ); application of the NDT testing in the evaluation of the bridge in-service performance; the influence of climate changes on structures; blast loading on concrete structures - impact of explosion on concrete element.
She teaches students on the following subjects: Bridges III, Durability of structures I and Durability of structures II at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Bridges at the Military study - Military Engineering.

Awards:

  • The outstanding paper honor for the best oral presentation at 8th CCC Congress, 2012
  • 1st award on the public competition for the preliminary design of Bundek Bridge in Zagreb, 2008
  • Award of the Faculty of Civil Engineering to the most successful students in the academic year 2004/2005.
