Civil Engineering

The purpose of this list is to make announcements to the architectural research and practice community about conferences, symposia, events and publications relating to the study, practice, theory and history of architecture and architectural practice

The aim of the list is to enable people using the PAMELA facility for biomedical instrumentation design and testing to communicate easily.

This list is used by the operators and users of the British Isles GPS archive Facility, to make announcements on archive operation and news items, to enable discussion between GPS data users, and to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas and research between satellite positioning technologists and experts in other fields across the spectrum of science.

This list is aimed at geotechnical engineers in research and industry. It can be viewed as an informal forum for exchanging information & ideas on any aspects of geotechnical engineering (soil and rock) and related fields, such as engineering geology & geo-environmental engineering.

The purpose of this group is to support the sharing of practice, materials and solutions associated with the delivery of the Foundation Apprenticeships in Engineering & Civil Engineering. The group is a joint initiative involving the College Development Network and Skills Development Scotland.

This list is intended for discussion of research in the use of FRP (Fibre Reinforced Composite) materials in construction and concrete in particular as structural reinforcement or for repair/strengthening.

Information and discussion list for the Engineering Group of the Geological Society and other interested engineering geologists

This list is a forum for researchers interested in industrial graphites to promote networking, discussion and exchange of ideas. This list is particularly relevant to those interested in nuclear graphite, its use as a structural material in reactor systems and subsequent ageing mechanisms and decommissioning. This list also includes discussion on the IAEA international database on irradiated graphite properties.

The #IJLBE provides a vehicle for the publication of high quality legal scholarship in the context of the design, construction, management and ongoing use and enjoyment of the built environment. Areas of substantive law addressed include land, property, planning, environmental, housing and construction law as well as relevant areas of contractual and tortious liability. Submitted manuscripts may adopt doctrinal, theoretical or other forms of legal scholarship, or deal with empirical and socio-legal investigations within a built environment context. In keeping with the international scope of the journal, articles drawing comparisons between two or more jurisdictions and those offering theoretical cross-jurisdictional legal perspectives are particularly welcome.

The role of the river restoration mailing list is to act as a discussion forum for both academics and practitioners in the field of river restoration. Enabling the wider dissemination of information of a practical, theoretical and scientific nature within environmental organisations and across academic disciplines. This list has also the potential to act as a means of disseminating information on areas of good practice, thus facilitating advancements within this field.

A forum for academics and practitioners for the exchange and development of knowledge and practice on all aspects of Streets: design and mangement, maintenance and funding, #governance and planning; community involvement and collaboration. The forum also addersses the wider impact of streets, including socialisation, child development, public health, active lifestyles, economic growth, and sustainability.

Discussion forum for ongoing thermogeology research

A FORUM for the exchange of ideas and information by researchers and practitioners involved in the pursuit of excellence in the construction sector. Sublist of total-quality-all

UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) communications for its internal community

A discussion list for researchers studying the engineering behaviour of unsaturated soils. This can include experimental work and numerical modelling concerning the mechanical and flow properties of unsaturated soils.

This list addresses a significant global risk that is largely neglected in research and policy. Fires cause over 300,000 deaths annually worldwide and leave millions with permanent injuries: 95% of deaths are in low- and middle-income countries. Burn injury risk is strongly associated with low-income and informal settlements, which are growing rapidly in an urbanising world. Urban fires exemplify a global problem that the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) defines as ‘extensive risk’: i.e. the widespread risk to repeated or persistent hazard conditions of low or moderate intensity, often of a highly localized nature, which can lead to debilitating cumulative disaster impacts. Fire policy and mitigation strategies in poorer countries are constrained by lack of data, capacity and resources. This list builds on existing informal collaborations involving UK universities, independent research institutions, international NGOs and fire and rescue services. It is open to anyone working on any aspect of this subject, from any country.

A list to facilitate communication of a new network of UK and Malaysian (principally early career) academics recently created via a British Council Researcher Links workshop (see www.urban-groundwater.net)
