Civil Engineers defy the elements to protect crop trade and save Britain millions

Description
Lodging, the term used to describe the flattening effect of high wind speeds and heavy rainfall on trees or crops, has a significant economic impact on the UK crop industry. Research in the School of Civil Engineering seeks to make recommendations for improvements in the agricultural industry to reduce the sometimes devastating effects. "A generalised model of crop lodging" was awarded College Best Publication Award.

'Mapping the Underworld' research informs new industry standard

Description
The vast network of utility services buried underground is fundamental to the way we live today, however around 4 million holes are dug into UK roads each year resulting in traffic disruption, high costs and wasted man hours. Not only this, inaccurate, incomplete and/or out-of-date information on the existence and location of utility assets poses problems for new construction or rehabilitation works and many projects don't go according to plan. Dr Nicole Metje, School of Civil Engineering, has spent nearly two years as the academic advisor for a dedicated committee working on the development of a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) project, which sought to address some of these challenges.
