Abstract: Because of its great performance and its capacity to cut down on the overall amount of material used in a project, high strength steel is becoming an increasingly preferred material choice for the construction of civil engineering projects. The overall structural behaviour of frames built from high strength steel will be investigated in this research, which will build upon prior work done at Brunel and explore the behaviour of frames under fire. Students who are interested in obtaining a fundamental understanding of the way that steel structures respond in a fire using finite element analysis are the ones who will benefit the most from participating in this project. It would be helpful if you had experience or an interest in structural fire engineering as well as finite element modelling. Additionally helpful is prior experience in the relevant field (please provide sufficient details in your personal statement so that its relevance can be established). Candidates will either already possess or be required to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering with a grade point average of at least 3.0 (or its international equivalent). There is no requirement for a postgraduate master’s degree, however having one could be beneficial. It would be helpful if you have previous experience with MATLAB, finite element modelling, and structural engineering. It would be beneficial to have knowledge of structures as well as finite element modelling. Additionally, he or she needs to be highly driven, capable of working in a team, collaborating with others, and have excellent communication skills.
