Project title: Geotechnical big data monitoring and assessment tools for evaluating whole-life performance of underground infrastructure
Supervision team: Dr. Zili Li (UCC) and other collaborators at UCC, Tyndall, University of Cambridge, UC Berkeley, MIT, Tongji, etc.
This project will develop and improve the aforementioned two novel tools (distributed fibre optic sensing, drone, robotics and image-based defect assessment) for geo-infrastructure monitoring in collaboration with Cambridge University, UC Berkeley, Tyndall and industrial partners. The developed novel monitoring tools will be applied to 2-4 ageing & prospective underground infrastructures in a large scale to gather more comprehensive monitoring big data than previously available at lower cost.
The gathered monitoring datasets will 1) reveal comprehensive ground-tunnel behaviour in 3D large scale, and 2) validate advanced finite element models for evaluating geo-infrastructure performance during the life cycle, subject to deterioration, climate change, etc., aiming to save infrastructure maintenance cost and increase their serviceable lifespan.
Position Description: Two 4-year PhD full-time positions start from 01 Jan 2023 or soon thereafter. The stipend is 18,500 euros per annum with a contribution to tuition fees of 5,500 euros per annum or tuition fee waiver.
One 2.5-year Postdoc position starts from May 2023 or soon thereafter.
