  • Programme Description

    Programme Description

    Research in the Department of Civil Engineering covers a broad range of subjects including: structural engineering; advanced composite materials; earthquake engineering and structural dynamics; geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics; hydraulics, hydrology and water management; water and health; civil engineering systems and engineering management; coastal engineering; and risk and reliability studies. Many research activities cross boundaries both within and beyond the Department. The Department also runs a modular taught MSc programme in Water and Environmental Management.

    The Department is a leader in the new £20-million Bristol Laboratories for Advanced Dynamics Engineering (BLADE), which integrates dynamics and materials research in the Engineering Faculty. Much of the research includes monitoring of prototypes or modelling at large scale. Examples are the dynamics of cable-stayed bridges such as the Second Severn Crossing; analysis of deep excavations; and flood prediction based on real-time radar detection of rainfall. The Water and Environmental Management Research Centre is the leader of the new EPSRC Flood Risk Management Research Consortium, which received the largest water research grant ever placed by the Council.

    The Water and Health Research Centre has a $13m grant by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a low cost water quality monitoring device for use in developing countries. The Systems group leads Industrial Doctorate Centre in Systems, supported by £5.7 million from the EPSRC and run in partnership with the University of Bath.
