Structural Reliability

Members of the structures research group are focused on the following topics in relation to structural reliability:

  •  Seismic reliability of bridges employing to different retrofit techniques
  • Reliability of structures in marine environments
  • Safety assessment of offshore structures
  • Development of maintenance management methodologies for optimisation of budgets on bridge networks
  • Safety implications of using high performance materials in repair
  • Plasticity based response models in safety assessment of RC deck slabs
  • Influence of statistical uncertainty on system reliability
  • Reliability of railway structures
