Economic modelling of gender issues in road transport

The inclusion of gender issues in road transport has been long recognised. Therefore it appears necessary that effective road transport policies should address gender issues sufficiently. Read more

Hydrogen vehicles with lower cost & enhanced durability – a road to zero (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/MCE/XING)

In 2018, the UK government released its strategy in a report entitled «The road to zero» presenting new measures to clean up road transport and lead the world in developing, manufacturing, and using zero-emission road vehicles. Read more

Improving road safety in low- and middle- income countries

Ninety percent of the globe’s road traffic fatalities are located in Low- and Middle- Income Countries (LMICs) but the majority of research available to date addresses driver behaviour in high income countries. Read more

Modelling the economic impacts of non-regulated road transport safety in the Global South

The growth of countries of the Global South may rely on various transport modes, referred to as irregular, informal, para-transit, and non-regulated transport, that do not conform to international standards. Read more

Modular hydrogen storage for low-carbon road transport

Green molecular or di-hydrogen (H2) is an exciting and interesting option as a low-carbon fuel for road transport, including light- and heavy-duty vehicles, with the added benefit of lower negative air quality impacts compared with fossil fuels whether used in ICEs or fuel cells. . Read more

Understanding and intervening in young driver road safety

Newly-qualified drivers are the most likely drivers on the road to be involved in crashes. This is likely to reflect a combination of insufficient driving skill and deliberately choosing a risky driving style (e.g., speeding, dangerous overtaking). Read more

The role of the road network on city economic performance

This project aims at mapping the transport enabled connectivity of the city economy. Using traffic data from Sheffield City Council and insights from the census, this project will draw a picture of mobility within Sheffield an across the City Region. Read more

Enhancing Urban Flood Resilience with Innovative Digital Design Technologies (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/MCE/FENG)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on urban road network (URN). Read more

The Development of New Models for the Prediction of Vehicle Brake Judder Under Transient Conditions

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The increasing provision of regenerative braking on road vehicles will enable the friction brakes to be downsized, with an associated weight and cost saving, but their performance (torque generated, fade resistance, durability, pedal feel and resistance to the development of judder) must meet established user standards.
