Principal aims

Main activities and objectives include research, education, and contractor assistance. The laboratory activities are focused on the engineering of transportation infrastructures. Recognized pillars are the scientific independence through work. Competitive and international undertaking, cooperation and team science are the values and the mission.

Research activities

  • Tests, high-speed surveys, analyses, studies and researches about transportation infrastructures, manufacturing and processing of materials. Feasibility studies, industrial research, pre-competitive development, traditional and advanced tests and certifications on soils, bituminous mixes, pavements, infrastructures.
  • Bituminous materials for transportation infrastructures: constitutive relationships; premium bituminous mixes; hot, warm, and cold recycling/production of asphalt pavements; mix design carried out in terms of volumetric approach, soil stabilization.
  • Fundamental and empirical variables for estimation and pavement optimization. Use of innovative/reclaimed materials for transportation infrastructures.
  • Innovative parameters and devices for the analysis of surface properties, geometry, main characteristics, and layout.
  • Modelling: mechanistic approaches for structural design; finite element analysis and experimental validations.
  • Life cycle cost analysis, management, maintenance, and rehabilitation of road pavements.
  • Safety/security/risk for transportation infrastructures; intrinsic safety of the infrastructures (RSA, RSR, tire-road interaction, tire-rail interaction, etc.); management of infrastructures and mitigation of risks during the transport of hazardous materials (Hazmat).
  • Design optimization for transportation infrastructures (yard organization and workzones included).
  • Environmental impact (noise, air pollution, carbon footprint) of transportation infrastructures, transportation systems, plants, and related processes involved in the supply chain.
  • Sensors, energy harvesting, for transportation infrastructure, smart cities, and mobility-related constructions.
  • Quality control, Quality assurance, Pay adjustment.
