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

Characterising the failure and fracture of blast loaded structural materials

Explosions cause high intensity, short duration, loads that can be devastating to their surroundings. Examples include the recent Beirut explosion, the terrorist bombings in Manchester and the detonation of landmines across the globe. Read more

The Investigation of Cold-Formed Thin-Walled Structural Members with Perforations Subjected to Different Loading Conditions

Reference number. SCEBE/21SF/005/MK. Background. Cold-formed steel sections have become competitive structural components in modern building construction due to their inherent favourable characteristics over conventional hot-rolled steel members. Read more

Characterising the loading and structural response from combined blast and fragmentation experiments

Improvised explosive devices (IEDS) cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. In many cases, explosives are embedded with solid objects or encased in housings designed to fragment upon detonation. Read more

Structural modelling and optimization of direct-driven electrical generators for offshore renewable energy converters “SMODEREC”

The School of Engineering and the Built Environment, “SEBE”, at Edinburgh Napier University is a portal for research and knowledge transfer that has contributed extensively to develop and promote renewable and sustainable energy devices in the UK and abroad over the last 30 years. Read more

PhD in Intelligent Cyber-Physical Connectors for Digital Twins of Steel Pipes and Structural Hollow Sections

  Research Group: Materials and Manufacturing
Sponsor Company. Tata Steel. Start Date. September/October 2020. ABOUT THE PROJECT. 45% of global emissions is caused by how we make and use products. Read more

Mechanical metamaterial

Supervisory Team.     Dr Scott Walker, Dr Susmita Naskar. Project description. This PhD studentship will involve a combination of theoretical, computational and experimental work, providing the students with a complete and holistic training and a diverse research experience. Read more

Mechanics of soft solids and structures under large deformation

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components, devices and structures. Read more
