Risk assessment of bridges under flood and earthquake hazards

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Saturday, August 03, 2019
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The research will require the development of advanced models for describing the sources of hazards (namely earthquakes and floods) as well as the structural vulnerability under multiple events with different intensity. Extensive numerical analyses of the behaviour of bridges and buildings are also envisaged, requiring the use of state-of-the-art finite element programmes such as OpenSees and Abaqus, and of probabilistic methodologies for the propagation of the uncertainties inherent to the hazard and the structural models.

Funding Notes

You must have, or expect to achieve, a minimum 2:1 honours degree or equivalent, in Civil Engineering or a relevant subject. Preference will be given to candidates with educational and/or research experience in Structural Engineering and Earthquake Engineering. Experience conducting both numerical and experimental/field test research would be an advantage.. The candidate will be expected to conduct work with industrial partners and should have good interpersonal skills. An overall score of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent is required, with individual scores of 6.0 in each of the sub-skills.
Funding for both tuition fees and annual living expenses available to EU citizens.
