Civil Engineering (Structural)

We are developing internationally competitive research in advanced computational solid and applied analytical structural mechanics, so by pursuing structural civil engineering research with us students will work with academics who are leaders in their fields. Our current research includes: non-linear structural optimisation; non-linear analysis of conventional and non-conventional structures and materials; structural integrity assessment; seismic design and analysis; resilience of complex infrastructure networks. Examples of MPhil and PhD supervision in our research areas include: analysis of concrete at elevated temperatures; structural optimisation and reliability; structural textiles and polymeric composites; seismic engineering and extreme loadings; the effects of transient loads on structures; numerical methods; computational mechanics; analysis of lightweight fabric and pneumatic structures; resilience of complex infrastructure networks.
