Welcome to ARTEL

Advanced Road & Transportation Engineering Lab (ARTEL) is a collaborative transportation engineering research group established in the Fall of 2017. The main goal of our research group is to contribute in the road transportation field, in particular, in the development of safe and sustainable roads in Canada. In Canada, we have over 1.13 million kilometers of roads (two-lane equivalent km)  which is the 7th largest road network in the world. This road network plays a key role in the safe movement of people and goods, and the economic advancement of the country. Therefore, the country invests billions of dollars every year in construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of these roads.

The focus of our current research is to enhance road pavement performance and sustainability, to design climate-resilient pavement systems, and to develop an improved pavement management system.
