Two interns in the UCD School of Civil Engineering showcase their research into Irish roads.

Friday, 13 September, 2019

Alexis & Guillaume are interns in the UCD School of Civil Engineering using sensors to determine the profile of the roads in Ireland and it all begins with a remote controlled car.
This is being done as part of the SIRMA project.
Most of the transportation of people and goods in Atlantic Area is made through rail and road. The performance of this infrastructure is directly affected by extreme natural events and by the strong corrosion processes that result from proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.
SIRMA project aims to develop a robust framework for the management and mitigation of such risks, by implementing immediate, medium and long-term measures, thus increasing the resilience of transportation infrastructure.
