Our research discovers new materials, techniques, and mathematical engineering tools that enhance infrastructure construction, maintenance, management, and rehabilitation.
Engineering Tools for Infrastructure Analysis
Developing approaches to analyse potential future scenarios, such as extreme events and changing climate conditions, and how these affect the resiliency and vulnerability of transportation facilities.
User-focused infrastructure planning
Seeking ways to help management make better decisions by finding better ways of capturing and analysing infrastructure characteristics, human behaviour and dynamic transport performance across the integrated system.
Optimal Infrastructure Asset Management
Applying diverse optimisation techniques to decisions regarding the management and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure facilities and roadworks scheduling. This work balances the financial impact of transport systems with user costs in travel time delay.
