We evaluate the engineering, environmental and sustainable aspects of elements of road, rail, coastal and airfield infrastructure.
We perform laboratory assessment of materials and technologies for existing and future transport infrastructures. We develop novel computational methods to facilitate improved design of coastal infrastructure defences. We are concerned with the sustainability and resilience of transportation infrastructure, sustainability of coastal defences, the management and maintenance of the existing infrastructure asset as well as envisioning future transport systems.
We teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and provide training courses in these topics. We also house a commercial service for industry to help solve practical problems.
