Projects underway

Construction impact - Prediction, assessment and control of damage from ground movements
This project identifies common sources of ground movement and their methods of prediction using empirical and analytical methods.
 
Responding to the lessons learnt from flooding
The aim of this project is to provide guidance on how to implement the recommendations contained in the published reports and from other lessons learned.
 
NERC Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Programme (ERIIP)
The Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme is a five-year, £5m initiative, which will be driven by the needs of the business community and decision-makers.
 
Thrust blocks on buried pressure pipelines
This project will review and update CIRIA's 1994 guide to the design of thrust blocks for buried pressure pipelines to reflect new materials - particularly polyethylene, practices and changes to standards and codes.
 
Scour at bridges and other hydraulic structures phase 1 - supplement
This project will review recent experience and research and capture this information in a supplement to CIRIA's existing manual on scour at bridges and other hydraulic structures C742 (2015)
 
Application of Eurocode 7 to the design of flood embankments
Eurocode 7 is the EU standard for the design of geotechnical structures. Its use in public sector works became mandatory in EU member states in 2010 and it has been implemented in varying ways by member states.
 
Containment systems for pollution control - Phase 1
This project will produce a supplement guide to C736, drawing on the past six years worth of experience in the inspection, upgrading and repair of containment structures.
 
Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) for civil structures
CIRIA is developing guidance for civil infrastructure owners and operators, managers and maintainers. The guidance will present the plethora of NDE techniques available in the marketplace, detail their respective strengths and weaknesses and...
