Ioanna Stamataki: UCL CEGE Research Report
In May 2017, Ioanna Stamataki spent six weeks at University College London (UCL) in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) where she undertook her experimental work. Subsequently, her work was mentioned in the UCL CEGE Research Report 2017. The article written by Dr Eugeny Buldakov, describes the collaborative experiment between CEGE and the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Bath where flash floods were generated in a controlled environment and their interaction with the built environment was investigated. The experiment provided a high quality data set for the calibration of numerical models and provided understanding of the interaction of flash floods with the built environment, which will hopefully lead to policy change in terms of safe design in flood-prone areas.
CEGE is a leading Centre in the research sector aiming to engineer a better world. Their 2017 Annual Research Report, presented research advances in the topics of the built environment, measurement and big data and infrastructure. It provided a broad multidisciplinary view of the current issues and showed the range of their research.
