Research

Underpinned by state-of-the-art computational tools and recent major investments in our advanced structural testing and concrete durability laboratories, our research ranges from fundamental to applied aspects of structural engineering.

In addition to our work on new and improved structural forms and materials, a growing theme has been on the response of structures to extreme loading including work on blast-resistance, seismic behaviour and structural robustness. Our contribution in the areas of lifetime assessment, durability and long-term behaviour continue to expand, as does our work on structural biomechanics.

Our research has been funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the European Commission, Office of Naval Research (USA), DTI, NPL, CIRIA, the UK Highways Agency, BNFL, NIREX, London Underground Limited, Fosroc International and Lafarge.

Principal areas of research include:

  • Bridge Engineering
  • Composite Construction
  • Computational Mechanics
  • Concrete Durability
  • Concrete Materials
  • Concrete Structures
  • Earthquake Engineering
  • Extreme and Hazardous Loading
  • Steel Structures
  • Structural Biomechanics
  • Structural Dynamics
  • Structural Reliability
  • Structural Stability
