Long-Lasting Roads in India: IIT Hyderabad’s Vision

Long-Lasting Roads in India: IIT Hyderabad’s Vision

About 4.37 kilometers of roads per 1,000 people is what researchers say about the Indian roads. It is said to be as equal to the US but for now, it is considered to be the second largest country to have this road network. The country has always had problems with road traffic and more. But now a new solution is on its way, which is provided by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad. Their model is to construct long-lasting roads within the Indian region. IIT Hyderabad will be using a technique named reliability-based design optimization (RBDO). It will aid in predicting the performance of the road surfaces. Including pavements that will be later compared to the predictions on conventional road designs, which is confirmed, researchers.

Professor SireeshSaride of the Civil Engineering Department of, IIT Hyderabad said that RBDO is a modeling technique that combines optimization approaches with reliability assessment of structures. In the past, we have all come across the drive to pave the Indian roadway network. According to reports in the year 2016, there were 62.5 percent of Indian roads were paved. But for now, IIT Hyderabad is aiming to make the roads more comfortable for riding, favorable light reflection characteristics, good skid resistance (which is important in Indian roads) and low noise pollution.
