Its research will help ensure that the many large-scale maritime and land transport infrastructure projects in the pipeline will be resilient, efficient, and able to support the massive economic growth Indonesia is experiencing.
Developing a fibre-optic sensor for pipeline monitoring, predictive models of train dynamics and bridge life expectancy, a hybrid framework for the non-destructive testing of infrastructure, a dataset of container logistics in Indonesia, and container logistics simulation software.
Producing 16 refereed publications, with many more in the pipeline.
