Dr Pav Bingel was appointed from October 2000 by Leeds Metropolitan University, with support from BDA, as The Brick Development Association Reader in Brickwork Masonry.
Dr Bingel is senior lecturer in civil engineering within the School of the Built Environment at LMU. An important part of his workload focuses on brickwork research and innovation issues. This currently includes collaborative project work on clay brickwork movement characteristics and on the development of advanced design technologies for brickwork cladding to framed building structures. An example of this is the experimental full-height brick cladding panels to the seven-storey concreteframed test building at BRE Cardington.
