Course summary

We are developing internationally competitive research in advanced computational solid and applied analytical structural mechanics, so by pursuing structural civil engineering research with us you will work with academics who are leaders in their fields.

By pursuing research in the School of Engineering you will join an extremely successful research group focussing on structural civil engineering. Our mission is to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. This means that we attract high quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.

Within the School of Engineering we have a research group focussed on geotechnics and structures, which deals with the fundamental concepts of material behaviour, construction and design technology. Our research has a central theme of Earth systems science engineering and management, focussing on the concepts of:

sustainability in construction
climate change and the effects on civil engineering

You should have an enthusiasm for research in the field of structures, civil engineering. 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 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.
