Professor Colin Taylor


Earthquake and dynamic design of civil engineering systems, especially dams, long span bridges, buildings and nuclear facilities. Developing new, holistic, risk-based approach for managing the performance of complex built environment systems over their life-cycle (design to decommissioning). Applying these ideas to assessing the impact of climate change on the UK Electricity Supply Industry and other utilities. Developing advanced large-scale laboratory test techniques in earthquake engineering and structural dynamics (e.g. shaking table testing). A lead academic in development of the #15m BLADE laboratories.
