The Structural Engineering Research Facility consists of a dedicated laboratory facility. The testing laboratory is dedicated to research and development work, encompassing both empirical and numerical testing/design programmes.

Recent research projects include:
⦁ Development of a novel natural-fibre composite system for retrofitting of existing masonry structures
⦁ The use of novel vegetable fibre geotextiles to reinforce and reinstate heritage buildings
⦁ Improving the performance of Reinforced Concrete structures struck by Earthquake in Central Italy
⦁ Performance of lime mortars in masonry
⦁ The use of thermally insulating mortars in architectural heritage structures4⦁ Dynamic and Static resistance of masonry structures
⦁ Sustainability and the sustainable use of building materials
⦁ Structural behaviour of new composite structures
⦁ Behaviour of composite-made shear connectors
⦁ Behaviour of concrete and masonry filled composite columns
⦁ Earthquake engineering of steel, timber and composite structures
⦁ Robustness and prevention of progressive collapse to historic masonry, steel and composite structures


Operative Responsible: Dr. Marco Corradi


The research group has been very successful in recent years, obtaining a number of research grants from highly regarded Italian, European and UK funding agencies, namely the ReLuis, Umbrian Region (Italy), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Italian Ministry of Research (MIUR), together with industrial consultancy projects. Collectively the group has received awards in advance of € 1,153k in the last 5 years.
