Speaker : Dr Prakash Kripakaran
Dr. Prakash Kripakaran is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Exeter. He has research interests in the areas of bridge hydraulics and scour, structural system identification and bridge performance monitoring. He leads the structural engineering work in an ongoing EPSRC grant titled “Risk Assessment of Masonry Bridges Under Flood Conditions: Hydrodynamic Effects of Debris Blockage and Scour”. This work aims to provide guidance on assessing scour and hydrodynamic effects of debris blockage at masonry bridges during floods. His talk at Bridges 2018 will focus on key findings from this work.
