Description :

Research Fellow in Structural Engineering: extension of theoretical models against progressive collapse for tall and supertall concrete buildings

We are seeking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to undertake a research project funded by the EPSRC working within the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Surrey. The project is for 6 months and it also offers opportunities for future collaborations within the Centre.

We are looking for a highly able, enthusiastic and collegiate individual, with research experience in structural engineering, FE modelling, dynamics and progressive collapse analysis of concrete flat slab structures. Applicants should hold a PhD in Structural Engineering or a related topic and will be expected to take a leading role in carrying out the research work.

The primary aim of the project is the validation and extension of theoretical models for progressive collapse of RC flat slab buildings structures. The work will also include FE modelling of different structural systems used in tall buildings. The candidate is expected to take an active role in disseminating the findings through technical reports and publications, and presentations to the structural engineering community. The post holder will join a strong international team, which includes industrial and research experts in SOM (UK) and UPV (Spain).
