This project aims to review an assess existing remote sensing technologies in order to improve and adapt technologies currently used in other fields to civil engineering applications. The two main aim...
The project will investigate the effectiveness of adding crumbed rubber to the site soil as a means of improving soil resilience to wheel loads, resisting erosion and hence reducing maintenance burden...
McDougall, J. (2008). Mass loss and landfilled waste mechanics
The impact of mass loss on a particulate medium is investigated. Through a series of laboratory tests on a partly soluble sand, the quantitative impact of mass loss is measure...

Modelling Secondary Settlement in Landfills
The main aim of the project seeks to enhance the resistance of the soil foundation against seismic events with the introducti...
Soil particle loss can occur through biodegradation, erosion and dissolution. Yet there is little understanding of the mechanical changes that accompany these p...
