Advanced Fatigue Analysis of Metallic Railway Bridges

In the UK and several other countries, large parts of the railway infrastructure were built in the late 19th/early 20th century. Metallic railway bridges are key elements in these networks and need to stay safe and functional for as long as possible. Read more

Rethinking the “Wandering Tribes:” Navvies, mobile communities, and representing transient voices

This collaborative doctoral project, shared between the National Railway Museum in York and the Department of Archaeology at the University of York, focuses on the understudied figures of railway history – the navvies. . Read more

Multi-sensing deterioration monitoring of railway bridges

Rail infrastructure deteriorates with time due to material fatigue, overloading, ground movement and environmental effects. This might affect the serviceability and structural integrity of rail assets, such as bridges, causing major socio-economic disruptions and occasionally life loss. Read more

Self-powered health monitoring of railway infrastructure Industrially sponsored by NetworkRail

The ambition of the project is to produce a self-charging sensor that monitor the structural health of a railway points and report changes to the health of the points in real time. Read more

Digital twin railway network

Research at Sheffield has been developing models of the railway network from a range of perspectives including smart-grid energy consumption, passenger satisfaction, and integration of rail with wider city and regional transport networks. Read more

Environmental fatigue life investigation of Automated Fibre Placement Process (AFPP) for Composite Mast PhD

This PhD studentship is funded by Network Rail, the owner and infrastructure manager of most of the railway network in Great Britain, and Furrer+Frey, presently an international leading and innovative, mid-size supplier of overhead contact lines. Read more

Transition to high performance railway overhead power lines

Recently undertaken research at Sheffield has identified opportunities to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of rail electrification systems through improvements to materials and design of the pantograph to overhead line contact. Read more
