Amila Dissanayake

Amila’s PhD is identifying the vulnerability index for a structural form of a steel bridge that has been exposed to bushfire. He is investigating ways to enhance the fire resilience of bridges and the effect of fire on bridge retrofitting works. Findings will help to develop time-temperature curve for bushfires and will broaden the knowledge on the use of structural retrofitting works on the disaster mitigation process.

Student project

This research aims to develop a far more complete and accurate performance based fire design methodology for steel bridges. It is investigating the ways in which the fire resistance of bridges can be improved by introducing passive fire protection measures. A vulnerability index for any given configuration of a steel bridge will be calculated.
