Scour—or the erosion of supporting sediments near bridge piers and abutments—accounts for the majority of overwater bridge failures around the world. The 2013 failure of the Bonnybrook Bridge in
ABOUT THE PROJECT The primary objective of this project is to develop new cost-effective seismic isolation platform (SIP) concepts that can be mass implemented for the most commonly designed
The research project aims to identify optimal configurations of building technologies that are suitable for the local climatic conditions and construction practices to achieve the aggressive design goal of
Using open source hardware-software platforms, the research team will build and deploy a low-cost sensor network for UHI mapping and indoor temperature-humidity mapping.
The project will instrument two offices buildings and several homes to gather detailed usage data and inform the researchers on peak usage capping, demand response and emergency evacuation. The
This research program aims to contribute to the development of innovative pavements, enhance detection of corrosion in reinforced concrete bridges, undertake research in seismic strengthening for BC schools, and
This project will develop new models for monitoring the structural health of tall and mid-rise buildings.
This project will develop a new system that uses Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for structural health monitoring of inaccessible railway bridges in Canada and India.
This project will develop new mixes that use boot ash to produce cement-less concrete or fine aggregate for concrete for precast applications of the construction industry resulting in significant
