The transportation engineering research group is a multidisciplinary research unit that investigates sustainable and safe mobility covering land, water, and air transportation. Current research focuses on intelligent transportation systems which provide innovative services for road users enabling more coordinated, safer, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.
Possible mitigating options for traffic congestion in the urban road network and asset management systems focusing road rehabilitation and maintenance works are being studied
Areas: Modeling and simulation of Transportation systems, Traffic Engineering, Pavement materials and structural design, Traffic safety, Human Factors, Infrastructure engineering, Urban engineering
Studies related to hydraulics (of streams, rivers and coastal systems) and water cycle are carried out. Hydraulics and ecohydrology of rivers (including ephemeral streams) and Environmental pollution assessment and mitigation are key domains in this group. Current works include, study of ephemeral streams, aggressive river meandering (includes physical modelling and numerical simulations), urban canal rehabilitation, and microplastic pollution. This group has collaborations with Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment - Chinese Academy of Sciences, Irrigation Department, Sichuan University and Saitama University.
Areas: Solving real world problems of lotic and lentic waters Contributing to the fundamental understanding of lotic and lentic waters and their interaction with land/catchment Coastal engineering
The built environment touches all aspects of our lives, encompassing the buildings we live in, the distribution systems that provide us with water and electricity, and the roads, bridges, and transportation systems we use to get from place to place. Our research group focuses on research areas such as whole building life cycle assessment, Life cycle costing and Life cycle data for construction materials, Green buildings and sustainable building material research, sustainable management of wastewater and solid waste, drinking water treatment, air pollution and control etc.
Areas: Building Life cycle assessment, circular economy in construction, Sustainability assessment of buildings, building materials, machinery, and transportation Wastewater management, Drinking water treatment, solid waste management, air and noise pollution, water sensitive urban design, water pollution mitigation and management
Areas: Concrete Engineering, Structural Engineering, Composite construction, Advanced materials, Sustainable construction materials
The built environment is prevalent for living and working. SIPM is a multi-disciplinary research group looking to identify, articulate and address the challenges faced by the construction industry and built environment. The research group works across various subject areas to identify how we design, deliver, and utilise built environment assets and infrastructure differently, considering challenges that impact both locally and globally. Research group work covers infrastructure, project management, digital transformation, and engineering economics to address wider questions of how we create a resilient infrastructure and built environment in the face of local & global changes. New ideas and approaches require new skills for the construction industry; we work with construction companies to look at new delivery modes and support the development of the professions to meet these new requirements. The research group signifies the convolution of the questions posed for the construction industry and recognises that for research to have an impact, it must be driven by collaboration with all stakeholders to improve the well-being of citizens, ensuring that buildings and infrastructure can meet current and future needs.
Areas: Feasibility of projects, Real estate Economics, Project management, Dispute Resolution and arbitration, Digital Transformation - BIM, Digital Twin
