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 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. Delivery: Off-campus study may be available in some circumstances, particularly if you have industrial sponsorship. Our programme includes intensive subject-specific supervision and training in research methodologies and core skills. You will also have an opportunity to undertake paid laboratory demonstrations and tutoring to gain teaching experience. Placements: We have extensive UK and international contacts so that research can be carried out in collaboration with industry and government agencies. Research projects are supervised by staff with a wide range of industrial and academic experience. Facilities: The School of Engineering has an exceptional range of laboratories equipped with a wide range of analytical instrumentation supporting our research, teaching and contract research projects. Find out about our: •Chemical and Biological Research Laboratories •Geotechnics and Structures Research Laboratories.
