This exciting project will focus on addressing two fundamental challenges in physics-enhanced machine learning strategies in applied mechanics: (i) Overcoming poor generalisation performance and physically inconsistent or implausible predictions of machine learning models in applied mechanics by developing approaches integrating physics (first principles) knowledge through biases within Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to inform physics (e,g. identification of unknown constitutive laws and nonlinearities from measurements and physics-knowledge).

Within the construction industry, there are established legacy processes which predate the digital age.

These processes facilitate the delivery of projects and collate documentation for future reference. However, often, data is collected without structure or digitisation which hinders value creation from knowledge management and does not allow for big data analytics. Physical forms, unstructured excel and visual data (such as drawings and photos) form a large proportion of the information collected and used on construction projects.

The progress in fundamental science and technology has allowed researchers to explore intriguing, but often elusive, quantum effects in atoms, ions and semiconductor nanostructures. Cryogenic temperatures and complex trapping techniques are often required to be able to access these fragile quantum states.
