Enhancing resilience of critical road infrastructure: Bridges, culverts and flood-ways under natural hazards


Road networks and critical road structures such as bridges, culverts and flood ways have a vital role before, during and after extreme events to reduce the vulnerability of the community being served.

It is important to assess the vulnerability of bridges in an extreme flood event as these critical infrastructures contribute to the resilience of the community during and in the recovery stage of the event.

Evaluating the performance of flood loadings on structural performance of a floodway


It is important to investigate the vulnerability of floodways in an extreme flood event as these critical infrastructures contribute to the resilience of the rural community that they serve during and in the recovery stage of the event. This study aims to analyse the behaviour of floodways under flood loadings using a finite element modelling approach.
