Department cooperation with railway practice

As part of cooperation with practice, the department solves current problems of railway operation and cooperates on the development and application possibilities of new structural elements and materials of the railway top and bottom and on project activities related to the modernization and optimization of railway lines and stations.

In laboratory conditions and in the field, the department carries out determination of the deformation resistance of the subgrade structure using static and dynamic load tests, evaluation of the physical-mechanical properties of soils and granular materials intended for the construction of the earth body and subgrade, assessment of the properties of the materials of the track bed, the degree of its pollution and usability after recycling, sampling of material for ecological evaluation, their processing and final evaluation of the required subgrade material with a recommendation for its further use. The department also carries out consulting and advisory activities for companies and organizations in solving specific projects within its professional focus and organizes professional conferences and seminars (VRT-modernization of railway lines, STRAHOS, Geosynthetics in construction).

Maintaining and improving public transport in rural areas against the background of demographic changes (population aging, migration to cities) is a big challenge. The goal of providing attractive public transport even in remote areas contrasts sharply with the need to reassess service efficiency and general interest in areas where the population is steadily declining. Especially for young people, the lack of adequate transport services is a key problem when they have to decide whether to stay or leave the countryside where they were born. Inadequate transport services have been identified as a contributing factor to the migration of young people from rural areas. It is necessary to change the approach to this problem and support transport services for young people. For this reason, the project supports and promotes public transport for young people through new measures and solutions.
