The Railway Research is led by Professor Peter Woodward who has been involved in rail track developments for over a decade. Peter and his team investigate the main issues for modern rail networks which include the need to cope with more traffic, heavier loads and higher speeds. These demands are common across the world and academics at the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure & Society are at the forefront of industrially relevant research in the UK for solving these issues. The researchers can offer numerical and experimental analysis of rail track under many different simulated conditions. It has a proven history of experience in the field with its practical applications and has recently benefited from £0.5 million worth of funding to continue with its important research.
