Emerging Structural Technologies
Welcome to the Emerging Structural Technologies and Design Research Group at Imperial College London
The "ERIES-TRUST: Truly resilient timber buildings" project will test for the first time large-scale seismically resilient rocking structures equipped with inerters.
Congratulations to all graduates from our Group, several of whom received prizes and awards for their excellence in Structural Engineering.
The Emerging Structural Technologies group, in collaboration with Profs Nanos (Portsmouth) and Pei (Mines), are trialing an innovative, low-cost wireless seismic monitoring system in the tallest full-scale building ever to be tested on an earthquake simulator (NEHRI Tallwood project).
The EmergStructTech Research Group has signed a MoU of with the Cluster of Excellence: Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC) at University of Stuttgart to harness the full potential of digital technologies in rethinking design.
Rodrigo Thiers-Moggia has been announced as the 2021 recipient of the Unwin Prize for the best PhD Thesis in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London
