19 Jun THE NOTTINGHAM TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING CENTRE (UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM) JOINS STA

The Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC) of the University of Nottingham (UNOTT) evaluates the engineering, environmental and sustainable aspects of elements of road, rail, dock and airfield infrastructure. NTEC performs laboratory assessment of materials that construct pavements, and is concerned with the sustainability of transportation infrastructure, the management and maintenance of the infrastructure asset.

NTEC’s mission is to be an internationally renowned centre of excellence in transportation engineering, providing a focus for fundamental and applied research and technical service support for the pavement industry.

NTEC is active in the following areas:

  • Pavement and rail track design and performance
  • Management of transport infrastructure assets
  • Mechanical and environmental property evaluation of materials used in the transport infrastructure
  • Sustainable transport infrastructure and the environment

 

The University of Nottingham is the leading partner of the SMARTI European Training Network that aims at training 15 early stage researchers within a stimulating platform where key stakeholders of the transport infrastructure sector will work alongside worldwide experts in smartening of systems (developers of high-tech sensors, advanced monitoring equipment, automated structures, etc.,) with direct support from the roads, railways and airports managers.
