About
Dr Farook Kalendher

Dr Farook Kalendher completed his PhD at RMIT University in 2017. His research investigated the resilience of bridges during natural disasters, particularly during floods. Farook identified that bridges have a major impact on resilience of road infrastructure and damage to bridges can increase the vulnerability of communities that heavily rely on road infrastructure.To address this issue, Farook developed a methodology to derive structural vulnerability models for bridge structures and determine vulnerable structures in road networks.

Farook is currently a Research Fellow at RMIT University and a research agent at VicRoads.

His thesis is available here.

Student project

This study investigated the resilience of bridges during natural disasters, particularly during floods. Bridges have a major impact on resilience of road infrastructure and damage to bridges can increase the vulnerability of communities that heavily rely on road infrastructure. Using concrete girder bridges as case studies, this research developed a methodology to derive structural vulnerability models for bridge structures and determine vulnerable structures in road networks.
