Chris Rogers spent three years in the civil engineering industry before returning to academia to research pipeline soil-structure interaction. He lectured at Nottingham and Loughborough Universities before taking up his current position at the University of Birmingham in 1998. His research portfolio is dominated by two primary, necessarily interrelated, themes of infrastructure engineering and urban sustainability, resilience and liveability. Building on prior research into trenchless technology, buried pipes, soil stabilization and road foundations, since 2004 he has led the multi-university EPSRC Mapping the Underworld (MTU) research initiative. MTU addresses the complex challenge of locating and mapping pipelines and cables buried beneath the streets, and has recently expanded into the use of shallow-surface geophysics to assess the condition of road structures, buried pipelines and cables, and the ground that supports them both (Assessing the Underworld). In iBUILD, he is working with engineers and economists to explore alternative business models emerging from considerations of infrastructure interdependencies. With a focus on underground space use and utility service provision to future cities more generally, he led the multi-disciplinary Urban Futures consortium (part of EPSRC’s Sustainable Urban Environments programme) and leads the Liveable Cities Programme Grant, both exploring the performance of future cities in relation to citizen and planetary wellbeing. He chairs the ICE’s Innovation & Research Panel and Futures Group, and is a member of the Lead Expert Group of the UK Government Foresight Future of Cities project.

Biography

Professor Rogers graduated in Civil Engineering at Leeds University in 1979 prior to gaining industrial experience as a graduate engineer in a structural engineering consultancy, as a resident engineer monitoring ground works on four sites, and as a site engineer with Mowlem Tunnelling working on the Carsington Dam Aqueduct Tunnel. 

He joined the University of Nottingham as a Research Assistant in 1982, where he read for his doctorate in the field of buried flexible pipes.  He subsequently lectured at Nottingham, and then Loughborough University, before taking up his current position at the University of Birmingham in 1998.

Teaching

Professor Rogers’ primary teaching interests are in seepage and compaction (MSc), consolidation, shear strength and critical state soil mechanics (MSc and MEng), and the application of sustainability and resilience principles to engineering design (all levels).

Research

Research Interests

The structural performance of flexible pipes when buried in trenches, under embankments and in landfills. The influence of trenching on the surrounding buried infrstructures and overlying road structures forms a parallel area of interest.

Trenchless pipeline technologies, notably ground displacements and ground stability around both horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and microtunnelling for new pipeline construction and HV cable laying, and pipe bursting and pipe splitting for on-line replacement.  He led an EPSRC Engineering Programme Network in Trenchless Technology (NETTWORK, 2000-2004), which spawned a number of initiatives including research into long-distance, shallow-buried HV cable installation and Mapping the Underworld (MTU). He leads the EPSRC-funded MTU programme, which initially (2004-2008) consisted of four inter-linked projects on buried utility location, mapping, data integration and asset tagging, and developed into to develop a multi-sensor geophysical device to detect all buried utility services (www.mappingtheunderworld.ac.uk).  This research took on a new focus via a £5.8 million EPSRC Responsive Mode Grant (2013-2017) to research the use of shallow-surface geophysics to assess the condition of road structures, buried pipelines and cables, and the ground that supports them both – Assessing the Underworld.  He is CI of a complementary research programme exploring the application of cold atom interferometry to the creation of a very sensitive gravity gradiometer for both shallow and deep subsurface sensing (£2.4 million, GG-TOP) and has a parallel interest in soft ground tunnelling.

Chemical stabilisation of clay soils, encompassing lime modification and stabilisation of clays and contaminated clays, and the use of other additives such as cement, PFA and blast furnace slag. His research has covered both surface and deep stabilisation techniques, the latter including lime piles and chemical piles, deep mix-in-place techniques and lime slurry pressure injection.  More recent research has concentrated on the use of electro-kinetics for soil stabilisation, dewatering liquid wastes and accelerating cast iron pipe corrosion in clay soils.

Road and railway foundations, notably the assessment in situ of stiffness and resistance to permanent deformation, and the chemical treatment of road subgrades and railway trackbeds.  In particular he has studied lime- and lime-cement stabilized subgrade soils cured under realistic environmental conditions.

Collapsible soils, notably loess.  Loess from different countries, including China, Libya and the UK (where it is more commonly known as brickearth), has been studied to determine both the degree of collapse and the mechanisms of collapse when it is loaded and wetted.  The constituents of the loess and the bonding mechanisms form the primary focus of the research.

The move towards greater sustainability in utility service provision, underground space usage, geotechnical processes and urban regeneration.  He led one of fifteen consortia funded under the first round of grants awarded under the EPSRC Sustainable Urban Environments (SUE) Programme to use the major Birmingham Eastside (www.esr.bham.ac.uk) redevelopment initiative as a series of case study sites to explore the challenges of introducing more sustainable solutions to the social, environmental and economic problems faced by such developments.  He subsequently led the Urban Futures (www.designingresilientcities.co.uk) SUE 2 consortium, which characterised four alternative extreme-yet-plausible future scenarios and developed a methodology for testing the resilience of engineering interventions put in place today.  Since many of these interventions are both advanced in the name of sustainability and have very long design lives, the methodology crucially highlights potentially vulnerability to contextual change. Much of the geotechnical input to these projects has concerned the exploitation of underground space beneath our cities.

Creation of cities and infrastructure systems for the far future.  Building on Urban Futures, Professor Rogers currently leads the £6.3 million EPSRC Programme Grantentitled Liveable Cities – Transforming the Engineering of Cities to Deliver Societal and Planetary Wellbeing. This multi-university grant is exploring urban metabolisms and how to assess the performance of cities, both now and with radical engineering interventions in place.  He is also a Deputy Director of the £3.5 million iBUILD centre researching infrastructure interdependencies and novel business models at the local and regional scales.

Professor Rogers leads the Birmingham Centre for Resilience Research and Education, a research centre in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Birmingham.  A member of the UK Government Foresight Future of Cities project (2013-2015), he led the University of Birmingham Policy Commission on Future Urban Living and chairs the Institution of Civil Engineers’ Innovation & Research Panel and Futures Group.  He has been awarded grants worth more than £25 million, supervised more than 50 Research Students and Assistants and has published more 200 refereed journal and conference papers.
