Tisal's PhD is focused on developing a numerical model that can account for the dynamic interaction between a building that is placed on piled-foundations and an underground railway tunnel.
This requires to first understand the essential physics within the soil and designing a generalised model so that different pile arrangements can be investigated. The end result will be to carry out an extensive parametric study, a first-of-its-kind in this field, to understand what material and geometric parameters are significant when you want to reduce the transmission of ground-borne vibration into a building.
