Projects per year
Cormac Reale is a Geotechnical Lecturer in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Bath. Cormac joined the department in 2019, prior to this, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, (2016 -2019) and as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Civil Engineering Department at the University College Dublin, Ireland (2015 - 2016).
Cormac has a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from University College Dublin awarded in 2015 and holds a First Class Hons Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) Degree from University College Cork, Ireland (2011).
His research predominately focuses on the structural health monitoring and probabilistic assessment of geotechnical infrastructure. His primary research interests lie in understanding and predicting the degradation and subsequent fatigue of aged railway slopes and using this information to determine optimum maintenance and remediation strategies. Within this domain he utilises a mixture of field work, laboratory work and probabilistic analysis to quantify infrastructure resilience and determine areas of critical concern. He is also interested in the design, monitoring and resilience of offshore foundations.
