His areas of expertise include structural dynamics, nonlinear finite element analysis, composite materials, vibration testing, photo elastic testing, high strain rate SHPB testing, shock testing, multi-scale modeling, micro-mechanics and imaging based non-destructive evaluation. His overarching interest lies in studying the response of materials, structures and infrastructure systems to natural and man-made hazards.

He works in the area of experimental characterization and analytic modelling of material and structure response to shock and high strain rate loading. As an Assistant Professor at University of Mississippi, USA, Dr. Tadepalli coordinated the setup and operations of a Shock Tube based Blast Testing Simulator which simulates blast phenomenon in the laboratory accurately without the need for dangerous TNT and explosive chemicals, as well as a Split Hopkinson Bar system for high strain rate testing of materials at University of Mississippi. Dr. Tadepalli also worked on the development of novel computational modeling methodologies to predict multi-scale behavior of cementitious materials under ballistic and shock loading conditions.

Dr. Tadepalli has previously worked as a Senior Engineer at Hinman Consulting Engineers, San Francisco, CA, where his job responsibilities included blast vulnerability assessments, hazard mitigation, and retrofit design for various facilities and infrastructure, technical guidance to engineers, proposal writing, technical innovation and development of novel analysis procedures. Dr. Tadepalli has also worked as the Project Engineer for NEESiT at UCSD, which is a national network and involved working with a variety of researchers from various universities across the US, for managing earthquake engineering and structural response data from laboratory experiments as well as hybrid simulations.

Dr. Tadepalli obtained his PhD in 2009 from the University of Mississippi. His area of research was multi-hazard (blast, seismic and wind) vulnerability assessment of reinforced concrete frame building structures. He obtained his MS in 2003 wherein he developed FEA software based on a novel analytical methodology, for modeling the linear dynamic and nonlinear quasi-static response of mechanically joined structures composed of pultruded composite sections.

Dr.Tadepalli has publications in various reputed journals and is also a reviewer for several reputed journals. He holds a US patent and has an EIT certification from Michigan. He is a member of Chi Epsilon Honor Society. He has served as PI on prestigious projects funded through IMPRINT-1, IMPRINT-2 , DRDO-ARDB and as Co-PI  on projects funded by DoD, USA.

He has served as a member on National Level Committees such as- Peer Review Committee for Project on Development of Wheeled APC 6X6, DRDO-VRDE, Ahmednagar as well as Reviewer for  SERB -IMPRINT proposals and CSIR-FIRST proposals.
