Transportation Research Group

 

Since the early 1980s, researchers in the Transport Research Group have been investigating the dynamics of heavy goods vehicles, their road-damaging characteristics as well as their safety, productivity and fuel consumption. The group is unusual in its cross-disciplinary approach, investigating projects spanning areas from heavy vehicle dynamics, safety and suspension design; to weigh-in-motion, vehicle-road interaction, and the failure mechanisms of asphalt pavements and paving materials
