Centre for Effective and Sustainable Transport Infrastructure (CESTI) is a project aimed at elimination of deficiencies in today's transport infrastructure. The main objectives of the project are:
C1 Technological solutions for resilient, long-lasting structures of transport infrastructure based on performance prediction and modeling, including the possibility of in-situ diagnostics.
C2 Advanced solutions for cheaper, reliable and fast construction of new transport structures with prescribed service life.
C3 Full recyclable road and railway structures, utilization of energetic by-products.
C4 Life Cycle Cost Engineering with focus on sustainability of construction and development of scenarios for long-term maintenance of key structures of transport infrastructure.
C5 Development of structural, technological and management solutions for safe transport infrastructure aiming at minimization of risk of injuries of workers and users during construction and operation of transport infrastructure.
C6 Cultivation of environment for broader implementation of Building Information Management in the area of transport infrastructure. Preparation of systematic solutions for BIM implementation.
C7 Preparation for construction of high-speed railway tracks with the emphasis on railway switches and bridges.
C8 Guidelines and technologies for suitable decisions on effective rehabilitation of existing bridges.
C9 Progressive designs, processes and efficient materials for tunnel lining, excavation in individual tunneling methods, tunnel pavements and ballastless track systems in railway tunnels.
C10 Environmental characterization, methodologies and LCA for air, water & noise pollution
C11 Innovative solutions of noise reducing road and railway structures.
C12 Complex systems for continual monitoring of transport infrastructure objects including progressive non-destructive diagnostic methods.
