Engineering PhD Studentship in Vibration Control of Civil Structures Vibration Control of Civil Engineering Structures Under Human Loading

Ref: 1234
Location: Streatham Campus, University of Exeter, EX4 4QJ and  Cornwall Campus, University of Exeter, TR10 9EZ
Primary supervisor: Professor Paul Reynolds, University of Exeter
Secondary supervisor: Professor Aleksandar Pavic, University of Exeter

Civil engineering structures are increasingly susceptible to vibrations caused by the activities of human occupants. The London Millennium Bridge was a very high profile example but there are many more floors, footbridges, sports stadia and other structures that have suffered problems.

This studentship is part of a wider programme of research into advanced technologies for mitigation of human-induced vibrations, including active, semi-active and hybrid vibration control. The role of the successful applicant will be to carry out a review of available and emerging technologies for vibration control of civil engineering structures, and to focus on one particular technology and carry out an analytical and experimental study of its effectiveness.

Application criteria
Applicants should have or expect to achieve at least a 2:1 Honours degree, or equivalent, in Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Control Engineering.
