Considering the expertise and track record of both Brunel and NSIRC-based staff, the following areas have been identified as the main research strengths within in the wider field of Structural Integrity:

1. Dynamic response of materials and structures (modelling, experimental characterisation and design/optimisation for composites and metals);
2. Structural health monitoring based on ultrasound wave propagation and acoustic emissions in solids (modelling, experimental validation, signal processing and sensors);
3. Steel, concrete and hybrid structures (material design, manufacturing, modelling and experimental characterisation);
4. Fatigue and fracture (modelling, experimental characterisation);
5. Extreme loading (e.g. fire, earthquake, blast and progressive collapse)
6. Fluid structure interaction (unboned flexible risers)
7. Manufacturing (e.g. sheet metal forming, bulk forming, casting, extrusion, 3D printing).
