Bridges are susceptible to severe damage due to wave-induced forces during extreme events such as coastal flooding, hurricanes, storm surges and tsunamis. As a direct impact of climate change, the frequency and intensity of these events are also expected to increase in the future. Ismail’s study aims to investigate the fragility and resilience of bridges subjected to extreme wave hazards. Ismail has had his research published in Engineering Structures. In addition, Ismail has presented his research at the 9th International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety and Management in Melbourne.

Student project

Different strengthening measures are proposed for the existing bridges in Australia. The vulnerability of the bridges before and after the retrofitting is obtained and analyzed.
