About

At Newcastle University we are developing internationally competitive research in advanced computational solid and applied analytical structural mechanics, so by pursuing Civil Engineering (Structural) research with us you will work with academics who are leaders in their fields.

Overview

By pursuing Civil Engineering (Structural) at Newcastle University in the School of Engineering you will join an extremely successful research group focussing on structural civil engineering. Our mission is to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. This means that we attract high quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.

Within the School of Engineering we have a research group focussed on geotechnics and structures, which deals with the fundamental concepts of material behaviour, construction and design technology. Our research has a central theme of Earth systems science engineering and management, focussing on the concepts of:

  • sustainability in construction
  • climate change and the effects on civil engineering

You should have an enthusiasm for research in the field of structures, civil engineering. Our current research includes:

  • non-linear structural optimisation
  • non-linear analysis of conventional and non-conventional structures and materials
  • structural integrity assessment
  • seismic design and analysis
  • resilience of complex infrastructure networks

Examples of MPhil and PhD supervision in our research areas include:

  • analysis of concrete at elevated temperatures
  • structural optimisation and reliability
  • structural textiles and polymeric composites
  • seismic engineering and extreme loadings
  • the effects of transient loads on structures
  • numerical methods
  • computational mechanics
  • analysis of lightweight fabric and pneumatic structures
  • resilience of complex infrastructure networks

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme, doctoral training centres and Research Student Support Team.
