  Adaptive optimisation of road transport infrastructure management
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round
A road transport system should aim to achieve a fair balance between safety, user satisfaction, condition, cost and the environment.
  Additive Manufacturing of Composites for Railway Switches and Crossings
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham is host to the world-leading Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, a multi-disciplinary group of staff from the Schools of Civil Engineering, Electronic, Electrical & Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials & Metallurgy.
  Assessing the condition of roads and buried infrastructure using geophysical technologies
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr N Metje
Applications accepted all year round
With a growing urban population around the world, we are more than ever reliant on a healthy and functional infrastructure system.
  Data mining techniques for road safety policy making
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round
Road safety is associated with target setting at policy making lever. Such targets are usually associated with statistical analysis of accident data.
  Detailed review of road safety countermeasure effectiveness in low and middle income countries (LMIC)
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round
The applicability and transferability of crash modification factors and related countermeasure effectiveness is important to ensure crash models reflect operating conditions in each country.
  Development of a mobile platform for Quantum Technology gravity instrument
  Dr N Metje, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding what is buried in the ground and what is the condition of the ground (soft areas, low density) is vitally important to deliver safe and in budget construction projects, especially large projects such as HS2 and Crossrail and reduce the risk due to buried hazards such as mineshafts.
  Earthwork Stability - Modelling and Simulation of geotechnical parameters
  Dr N Metje, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Transport networks act as the conduit for energy and urban systems as the pipes and cables are often placed below roads and alongside rail.
  Future Railway Systems: Mechatronics and Autonomy for Railway Infrastructure
  Prof R Dixon, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Railway infrastructure systems (such as track switches and level crossings) rely upon mechanical technology which has changed very little over the last two centuries.
  Ground (soil) modification caused by degrading (corroding) buried metallic utilities (pipes)
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Iron (cast iron, ductile iron and steel) and other metallic products have historically been used frequently to make pipes for distribution of water and petroleum products globally, often buried in the ground which is chemically reactive and likely to induce degradation of the pipe / pipeline with time.
  In-situ Geotechnical Sensing - Development of new sensing methods and/or sensors to monitor water content and water pressure
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr N Metje, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Transport networks act as the conduit for energy and urban systems as the pipes and cables are often placed below roads and alongside rail.
