Dynamic X-ray analysis of fibre reinforced concrete composites: from pouring to ultimate loads

The entire life cycle of a concrete member will be studied using dynamic X-ray tomography. This project will investigate the influence of mixing and pouring on the load carrying cap more...

The modes of granular segregation

Granular segregation will be studied using dynamic X-ray tomography. This will be a pioneering study into the fundamental mechanisms underlying the phenomenon of segregation. more...

Dissipative pressure waves and the mechanics of granular materials

This project will experimentally investigate damage zones around seismogenic faults. This will be achieved through examining a novel basic mechanism for instability in solids: volum more...

Levee formation in debris flows and avalanches

Levees are a feature of many gravity current flows, yet their formation is not fully understood. This project will track their formation in laboratory scale experiments, and develop more...

A complete solution of the internal erosion problem for granular media

One of the most common mechanisms for the failure of Earth structures is via internal erosion, where fine particles are washed out of the material by the action of water. This proje more...

How reliable are body composition monitoring scales?

This project aims to determine the accuracy and precision of body composition monitoring scales that are commonly available to the general public (e.g. wireless tracking devices). more...

Crushable granular flows

In both earthquakes and landslides, grains are often crushed during flow. This changes the flowing behaviour, and causes the flow to accelerate. This project will develop an experim more...
