NSIRC

The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) is a state-of-the-art postgraduate engineering facility established and managed by structural integrity specialist TWI, working closely with lead academic partner Brunel University, the universities of Cambridge and Manchester, University College London (UCL), and founder sponsors BP and Lloyd’s Register Foundation. The collaborating partners will provide academic excellence to address the need for fundamental research, as well as high-quality, industry-relevant training for the next generation of structural integrity engineers.

NSIRC will advance fundamental research to support the safe operation of products and structures, develop innovative thinking, new fit-for-purpose technologies and informing design rules development and will demonstrate solutions for long-term asset management. This will include risk-based management, engineering critical assessment, NDT, structural health and condition monitoring and health management for use in industrial applications.
