Terrestrial Robotic Solutions for High-Resolution Geo-Road Asset Interactions Monitoring

Extreme weather events caused by ever changing climate conditions, including increased flooding events, underscore the urgent need for precise and high-resolution monitoring of our infrastructure systems, including the road networks. Read more

Assessment of the safety of deteriorated masonry structures

We aim to revolutionize the safety assessment of deteriorated and aged existing masonry structures. The current procedure for this is based on visual inspection and limited localized non-destructive or semi-destructive testing techniques. Read more

Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded within low carbon cement concretes made without Portland cement

Corrosion of reinforcing steel in conventional Portland Cement (PC)-based concretes exposed in challenging environments is a common problem, leading to cracking and spalling and its repair is a big cost to the UK economy. Read more

Development of a performance test method to evaluate effectiveness and service life of galvanic anodes used as part of repair systems and cathodic protection in reinforced concrete structures

One of the most challenging durability issues and causes of defects in reinforced concrete infrastructures is the corrosion of steel reinforcement, which leads to rust formation, cracking, spalling, delamination and degradation of structures (Popov, 2015 and Michael et al, 2016). Read more

The use of low-cost materials to improve sustainability of rural roads

Rural roads service most of the world's population and make up a significant portion of the global road network. According to the World Bank, rural roads are estimated to about 80% of the global road network and could be more than that in low-income countries (LICs). Read more

Climate resilience and sustainability of large portfolios of transport systems by leveraging openly available data

With unprecedented frequency, there is an increase in critical infrastructure failures as a result of climate stressors. Nevertheless, infrastructure adaptation to the changing climate is slow-not proofing our assets to future hazards. Read more

Building proactive climate resilience into critical infrastructure assets

Critical transport infrastructure, play a key role for the seamless functioning of our societies. Several assets are approaching the end of their design life, whereas at the same time are subjected to ever-increasing traffic loads and natural hazards that are aggravated by climate change.

An experimental 3D volumetric study of train aerodynamics

The aerodynamic slipstream created as a high-speed passenger train moves through the air is highly turbulent in nature. In particular the wake region is known to contain a series of helical vortices, which spread laterally into the far wake region, potentially affecting the stability of trackside workers. Read more
