Collaborative grant secured

The department, in collaboration with Universitat Politècnica de València, wins grant to test robustness of pre-fabricated concrete buildings.

Surrey's Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, in collaboration with Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (Spain), secured a grant of €200,000 from the State Research Agency in Spain (AEI) and European Funds.

The funds will be invested on the testing of a real-scale pre-fabricated concrete building subjected to localized damage (column removal).

This international collaborative projectPREBUST will result in very exciting large scale testing opportunities in one of the largest testing facilities in Europe which will complement the novel theoretical and computational work developed at Surrey.
