Using a random road graph model to understand road networks robustness to link failures (2020)
Journal Article
Sohouenou, P. Y., Christidis, P., Christodoulou, A., Neves, L. A., & Presti, D. L. (2020). Using a random road graph model to understand road networks robustness to link failures. International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection, 29, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcip.2020.100353

Disruptions to the transport system have a greater impact on society and the economy now than ever before due to the increased interconnectivity and interdependency of the economic sectors. The ability of transport systems to maintain functionality d... Read More about Using a random road graph model to understand road networks robustness to link failures.

Analysis of Extended Hollo-Bolt Connections: Combined Failure in Tension (2019)
Journal Article
Cabrera, M., Tizani, W., Mahmood, M., & Shamsudin, M. F. (2020). Analysis of Extended Hollo-Bolt Connections: Combined Failure in Tension. Journal of Constructional Steel Research, 165, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcsr.2019.105766

This paper investigates the combined failure mode of the Extended Hollo-Bolt (EHB) and the effect of the column thickness on the tensile behaviour of the blind fastener. A three-dimensional Finite Element (FE) model was developed, validated against e... Read More about Analysis of Extended Hollo-Bolt Connections: Combined Failure in Tension.

Experimental insights into the airtightness measurement of a house-sized chamber in a sheltered environment using blower door and pulse methods (2019)
Journal Article
Zheng, X., Cooper, E., Mazzon, J., Wallis, I., & Wood, C. (2019). Experimental insights into the airtightness measurement of a house-sized chamber in a sheltered environment using blower door and pulse methods. Building and Environment, 162, doi:10.1016/j.buildenv.2019.106269

This paper introduces a comparison study of measuring the airtightness of a house-sized test chamber using the novel pulse technique and a low range blower door method in a sheltered environment. Eight different testing plates were prepared and appli...

Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness (2019)
Journal Article
Zheng, X., Zu, Y., Cooper, E., Gillott, M., Tetlow, D., Riffat, S., & Wood, C. (2019). Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness. Future Cities and Environment, 5(1), 1-17. https://doi.org/10.5334/fce.66

A pulse pressurisation technique is developed and utilised for determining building leakage at low pressure, based on a "quasi-steady pulse" concept. The underlying principle of the technique is to subject the building envelope to a known volume chan...
