CTIS Research Equipment Activities

Research equipment activities co-sponsored by the Center for Transportation Infrastructure and Safety make it possible for researchers in the transportation field to acquire equipment necessary to improve, specialize, teach and further their investigations in the following areas:

  • Development, understanding, manufacturing, and use of new, more durable construction materials and NDT methods   
  • Installation processes and engineering design  
  • Monitoring and evaluating new and repaired structures
  • Standardization and code approval of products and design protocols
  • Development and deployment of infrastructure for a hydrogen economy
  • Modeling of high-pressure composite cylinders   
  • NDE modalities for hydrogen transportation systems   
  • Statistically validated codes and standards for critical hydrogen transportation infrastructure systems 
  • Safety of hydrogen-powered vehicles and the infrastructure supporting them
