Centre for Advanced Structural Engineering
The Centre for Advanced Structural Engineering (CASE) was formed in 1989 by the Structures Group of the School of Civil Engineering. It is an autonomous Centre within the School of Civil Engineering coordinating the School’s research and consulting activities in the field of structures. It supports a large materials and structures laboratory, a fully equipped fabrication workshop and a high-performance computing laboratory.
The School of Civil Engineering and the Centre for Advanced Structural Engineering is maintaining its high level of excellence in research and professional consulting and testing services in the field of structures
We have proven research expertise in fields such as:
- Structural stability & Thin-walled structures
- Composite structures
- Experimental techniques
- Non-linear materials:
- Computational Analysis:

CASE was involved in the organisation of CIMS2008: Coupled Instabilities in Metal Structures held in Sydney Australia 23 - 25 June 2008.
Consulting and Testing Services
The Centre provides a wide range of specialised structural engineering services to the profession and industry. These include:
- studies of unusual structures, including proof engineering for structural adequacy, development of new structures, and investigations of failures;
- specialised design assistance, including design code interpretations and development of design procedures;
- supply or development of high quality computer software for analysis or design;
- specialised testing services for control testing, proof testing, product development, model testing and analysis confirmation;
training programs for the professional development of practising engineers;
