My doctoral study started in October 2019 in the Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics (NCG). The aim of my PhD is to investigate the behaviour of soil-structure interfaces, and improve the models engineers currently use to predict their behaviour. Interfaces occur in every single civil engineering project on dry land. Rather oddly in respect of this fact, their behaviour is not widely understood, and vast amounts of resources are spent over-engineering their designs to stave off failure from wear over long periods of time. A lack of full understanding of how the engineered world responds to wear can often lead to catastrophe.
