Transportation Structures

Transportation structure research focuses on the built environment including bridges, pavements, pipelines, geotechnical applications and construction. Projects include the development of optimized structural systems with innovative and durable materials such as ultra-high performance concrete, decision making tools for construction management and investigation of rapid construction techniques to reduce delays in addition to monitoring strategies for bridges, pavements and substructures to extend the service life of the aging transportation infrastructure.
