Workshop, 1 March 2019@London: Risk & Resilience of bridges and networks

There was a lot of interaction and extremely interesting conversations as to what the future of resilience engineering looks like for transport networks. A follow-up elicitation poll is on its way. The workshop will be repeated in early June due to the number of people who expressed interest.

Participants from other academic institutions, Highways England, Councils, consultancies, London Boroughs, Transport Scotland, and Governemental bodies attended this workshop!

DYnamic identification and MOnitoring of scoured BRIdgeS under earthquake hazard

We have recently won the European research project “DYMOBRIS”, as part of the H2020-SERA-TA project (Transnational Access Facilities). We will be testing large scale bridge pier specimens under mulitple hazards (flood-induced scour and earthquake excitations).
