Ir. P.A. (Paul) Korswagen


I grew up in Peru where I later graduated from civil engineering at the PUCP and worked in structural design at an engineering firm that was dedicated to the seismic-resistant design of buildings.
In 2014, I came to Delft and finished a MSc in hydraulic structures focused on the probabilistic analysis of damage to structures. During these studies I also was part of the first Hyperloop student dream-team.


Currently, I am helping to explore the fundamentals of light masonry damage caused by cracking. The initiation, extension and lengthening of cracks can be viewed as cumulation of damage; this process and its causes require further understanding.
