Technische Universität Dresden - Faculty of Civil Engineering, the Institute of Geotechnical Engineering, Chair of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering
Technische Universität Dresden as a University of Excellence is one of the leading universities in Germany, and is ranked among the 100 most innovative universities worldwide. Its distinguishing feature is a strong focus on research as well as its diversified offer of more than 120 degree programs in Engineering Sciences, Natural Sciences, Humanities & Social Sciences and Medicine.
It pursues a long-term overall development program aimed at making TU Dresden an international top university.
The mobility of people and goods is a central foundation of our modern society with increasingly global and diversely networked processes. It enables an efficient economy and represents a valuable asset that must be preserved and further developed. Mobility, especially with regard to road mobility and to road traffic, is currently confronted with global challenges, which urgently require fundamental solutions.
In the planned SFB/TRR 339, a spatially as well as temporally multidimensional, model of vehicle, tire and road surface (concrete and asphalt) will be developed and researched, taking into account the road pavements. The model combines all available and relevant information about the "road of the future" system from physical investigations and modeling as well as from informational and traffic-related data (sensor data, data models etc.). The approach enables and requires the interaction between the physical-engineering and the informational-traffic design levels. This interactive model in space and time is referred to as the digital twin of the road, subject to analysis, control and prediction of the physical road by means of common interfaces.
