Ongoing inspection and maintenance of bridges poses a challenging task for infrastructure owners who must manage large bridge stocks with limited budgets. Drive-by monitoring approaches, using sensors in a vehicle, provide a promising solution to this challenge. This paper investigates the use...
A recent survey of Europe’s highway infrastructure has concluded that almost half of Europe’s bridges are nearing the end of their design live. Work in the wider Structural Health Monitoring sector is aiming to develop reliable and cost-effective methods for verifying condition, remaining...
The objective of this paper is to investigate and develop seismic design guidelines for multi-storey vertical irregular concentrically braced frames (CBFs). The work develops a direct displacement-based design (DDBD) procedure for irregular CBFs associated with steps in building plan area. In...
An investigation was carried out to examine the potential to utilise densified wood dowels as a reinforcement for timber subjected to compression loading perpendicular to the grain. While timber has a high strength-to-weight ratio parallel to the grain, it demonstrates poor strength...
The traditional means of using precast concrete sandwich panels are restrictive in terms of applications, where thick wythes result in heavy panels which are often unsuitable in retrofitting domestic and commercial buildings. As concrete sandwich panel technology has evolved to make it more...
