The group is dedicated to conducting research into developing modelling techniques to predict ways of improving the design, maintenance, and operation of engineering systems in order to reduce the frequency and consequences of failure.
We also focus on improving the resilience of engineering systems to a broad range of disruptive events, from hazardous system failures, to natural and manmade disasters, ensuring adequate defences against their consequences, management of the disruptive event, and the rapid restoration of system functionality.
The Group has a longstanding history of research activities relating to railway infrastructure. Since 2009 we have been the Network Rail Strategic University Partner in Infrastructure Asset Management. Our activities include fundemental research on asset degradation, and whole system modelling, plus education, training, and dissemination of our research. This work has gained international recognition and is complemented by our projects on risk assement and reliability which look at the risks associated with railway infrastructure failures.
The group recieves funding from The Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a charitable foundation in the UK helping to protect life and property by supporting engineering-related education, public engagement and the application of research.
