Project Description

High strength steel is an increasingly popular material choice for civil engineering structures owing to its high performance and ability to reduce the overall material usage in a project. This project will build upon previous work done at Brunel and investigate the whole structure behaviour of frames made from high strength steel, in fire. This project will be most suitable for students interested in developing a fundamental understanding of the way that steel structures behave in a fire, using finite element analysis. You will be ambitious and committed to developing as an academic researcher.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website
Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.
