Project Description

The consequences of the increased occurrence of flooding within the UK has led to significant cases of bridge collapse that are associated with localized river bed scour. This project brings together researchers from the fields of structural and hydraulic engineering to develop a holistic approach to understanding the process that are dominant. The project will be laboratory, computational and field based in nature, and will look at the application of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems to monitor and predict structural response to ambient flow conditions.
