Mitigating vehicular crashes into masonry structures using innovative materials technologies at impact zone

Our structures are normally not designed for random and extreme loadings such a vehicular impacts. Buildings and their columns at road frontages and bridge piers are vulnerable to vehicular impacts which result in extensive property damage, harm to people and disruption of normal lives.This project will consider the use of new materials technology and advanced modelling techniques to design critical members of buildings and bridges, or to retrofit existing vulnerable walls and columns in order to mitigate the adverse effects …

Mitigating vehicular crashes into masonry structures using innovative damping technologies at wall edges

With population increases in major cities accompanied by increase in vehicles on road and waterways, structures such as columns in buildings and bridges as well as walls in buildings that are adjacent to the roads or waterways become vulnerable to vehicular crashes. These impacts cause damage or failure to the structure and injuries/deaths to passengers and users of the structure.This project will evaluate the vulnerability of one of those structures to credible vehicular crash and the effects of controlling parameters. …
