Research Papers

For large infrastructure projects, it is common to use a phased methodology to for assessing the utilities affected by ground movement from works. A three-phased process is proposed.  Phase 1 considers the magnitude of likely ground movements only. Phase 2…

Virtual reality (VR) is becoming common in the AEC/FM industry, closely linked to BIM implementation. VR tools can be used to anticipate operational issues, simulating them in a virtual prototype since early design. The paper investigates such a topic in relation to access, space and use performance of an existing hospital facility.

Finite element (FE) modelling has been widely used to create and assess models of the musculoskeletal system. However to achieve a high degree of resolution in describing the structural behaviour of the system, significant computational power and time are required. The objective of this study was to introduce a complimentary approach to FE modelling using a structural approach.

Since the 1930s, the limit equilibrium (LE) approach has been used to analyse slopes. This approach makes use of a number of differing analysis methods depending on the type of problem (circular vs non-circular) to be solved and the required accuracy of the result…

The process followed in designing the piled raft foundation of a tall building is discussed. This entails analysing the governing limit states, assessing the geotechnical characterisation of the soil deposit as well as deploying the appropriate modelling tool to study the behaviour of the chosen foundation system at each design phase…

This paper studies the smart behaviour observed in the dragonfly wing combining advanced digital modelling techniques with non-linear structural analysis. The morphology of the dragonfly wing is an optimal natural construction built by a complex patterning process, developed through evolution as a response to force flows and material organisation.
