CURRENT RESEARCH

Topic Summary of Research
  • Developing empirical relationship of hydrodynamic forces of floodwater during road crossing in urban environment

Road infrastructure is the main access for escape and emergency supplies during floods. In flood events, some part of low lying roads will be inundated creating blockage for vehicle movement. Statistics clearly point out the high risk of driving in and around flooded roads and low lying areas (NHC, 2010). Flowing floodwater exerts pressure on objects such as a car or person. The pressure will be higher when the water depth increases. Friction between the tire and the slippery pavement will also be reduced. At the same time water, sand, or mud tends to replace the frictional forces that stabilize the vehicle. This study will investigate how the flowing floodwater, site geometry and materials actually destabilize vehicles and people. The outcome of this research will provide the systematic approach to identify mechanics of floodwater during road crossing. This will enable better understanding of the parameters to be considered for its rational analysis and design of suitable road crossing strategy.

  • Reinforcing road foundation in flood prone stretches

Road life cycle is known to be shortened significantly in strecthes affected by floods. The annual monsoon season has caused the need to spend hundred million of ringgit for road repair every year. The use of suitable reinforcing material and techniques specific to this issue must be found. Experimental research method using laboratory test and laboratory physical model is used to collect data for the assessment of various techniques and materials to strengthened road foundation.
