Advances in Monitoring of Transportation Infrastructures
In modern days, an efficient road/railway infrastructure operations require regular monitoring and timely maintenance. Inherently, these are multidisciplinary challenges that need to bring different disciplines to join their forces together to come up with innovative solutions. The understanding of the fundamentals of road/railway including infrastructure, materials, dynamics, serviceability, etc. is essential for real-life deployment of new methodologies. Further, in the latest years, these fields have observed innovative solutions by embedding latest technologies available for sensing, IoT, infrastructure asset management, big-data approaches, artificial intelligence, digitalization, etc. As such, key research works are being carried out around the globe aiming to improve the availability and sustainability of transportation infrastructure. The multidisciplinary topic aims to provide a unique platform where the state-of-the-art methodologies, applications and developments in transport infrastructures and construction materials are put together. This multidisciplinary topic also welcomes review papers.
- New sensors and methodologies for monitoring transportation infrastructure and materials.
- Structural performance and degradation modelling and monitoring for pavement and railway infrastructures.
- Analysis of new material degradation, monitoring, and prediction, for durable, resilient, and low-maintenance pavement and railway infrastructures.
- Recycling and sustainable methodologies for transportation infrastructure materials.
- New materials and new elements for environmentally friendly building/construction of road and railway infrastructures.
- Analysis of case studies of failures/anomalies in transportation infrastructures.
- Assessment and performance predictions of transportation infrastructures based on physical models, data-based models, and hybrid models.
- AI-based methodologies for monitoring the transportation infrastructure.
- Big-data approaches for a green and digital transportation infrastructures.
- Challenges on digitalization, development of digital twins, and sustainability assessment of infrastructures.
Submissions considering applications in the broad sense of transportation infrastructure are welcome. For example, applications in road related to infrastructures for pedestrians, bicycles, cars, heavy trucks, airplanes, and for railway related to applications for metro, trams, ballasted and slab tracks, high speed lines, maglev, etc., are welcome.
