The Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC) undertakes cutting edge research into the mechanical performance and durability of transport infrastructure materials in roads, railways and airfields. The research conducted at the centre looks to optimise the performance of these materials when they are exposed to changing traffic loading and environmental conditions, such as increased traffic loads and flows and exposure to extreme weather conditions.

The centre has addressed a number of different areas related to transport infrastructure with activities in asset management and maintenance, smart materials and sensors, ballast and subgrade stabilisation, intelligent infrastructure, recycling and alternative materials, and self-healing materials.
