Structural Engineering, Bridge Research, Programming, and more…

Entries Comments


The reason that I became a structural engineer was because of a fascination with bridges. In 2001 I took the opportunity to move from consultancy practice into research on bridges. My PhD research (2001-2005) was in the area of bridge loading. In particular, I looked at how to statistically analyse limited amounts of data so that the lifetime maximum traffic loading on the bridge could be found. Since then I have kept up a moderate amount of research, in spite of a heavy lecture load.

Some quite general information, as well as some technical aspects are available in my PhD dissertation, here (18.7 MB). To save the big download, more information on this research is available on this page of the site.

A list of my publications, as well as most of the publications themselves, is available here.

Presentations I’ve made on my research, and general structural engineering topics, are available here.

Dear Sir,
I am a civil engineering and completed my degree this year only. I wish to apply for MASc and i am confused about the topic. I wish to do research in Bridges and tunnels or High rise buildings. Could you be kind enough to suggest a research topic in the above areas as this is a very important aspect in MASc.
Thank you.

Firstly, thank you very much for providing these valueble information. I am structural engineer graduated from University of Glagow . At present I plan to develop a small applet for calculations of pipeline supports using visual basic. could present more info on this topic?
