Dr Ryan Hoult

Ryan completed his thesis in 2017 on the performance of existing reinforced concrete walls in response to rare and very rare earthquake events. His research assessed the seismic for 500 year and 2500 return period events in Australia to map the performance of existing reinforced concrete walls. Ryan moved to Switzerland to work as Postdoctoral Researcher at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne at the end of his studies in 2018.

His thesis is available here.

Student project

This project is assessing the performance of reinforced concrete walls in response to rare and very rare earthquakes. This research firstly reassesses the seismic activities for 500 year and 2500 return period earthquakes in Australia. Using the results of earthquake hazard demand, the performance of existing reinforced concrete walls will be assessed in response to these events. Cost effective changes or detailing provisions will be recommended from the results.
