  • Analysis of load test on composite I-girder bridge 

    Huseynov, F; Brownjohn, JMW; O Brien, EJ; Hester, D (Springer Verlag, 2017-04-26)
    This paper showcases the importance of field testing in efforts to deal with the deteriorating infrastructure. It shows that when tested, bridges do not necessarily behave as expected under load, particularly with respect ...
  • An analysis of the combined consequences of pluvial and fluvial flooding 

    Chen, Albert S.; Djordjevic, Slobodan; Leandro, Jorge; Savic, Dragan (IWA Publishing, 2010)
    Intense rainfall in urban areas often generates both pluvial flooding due to the limited capacity of drainage systems, as well as fluvial flooding caused by deluges from river channels. The concurrence of pluvial and fluvial ...
