Area of Expertise:

Wind engineering; Earthquake engineering; Structural health monitoring (SHM); Finite element model updating; Vibration serviceability; System identification and biomechanics


By 2015, Professor Brownjohn had a research track record of SHM of civil infrastructure established over 24 years. He has been previously involved in Marie Curie international Reintegration project CISHM and Intra-European Fellowship MOSP, the FP7 NMP Integrated Project IRIS, the US Federal Highway Administration Long Term Bridge Performance Program and contributed to the American Society of Civil Engineers guidance on structural identification of civil infrastructure.

At the time of start of the TRUSS project, he had published 72 journal papers, with h=22, according to Thompson ISI.
