An article about SMaRT has been published in the July issue of Railway Gazette International, the leading business journal for the global rail industry. The article is dealing with how is SMaRT bringing together academics and suppliers to develop innovative sand mitigation measures based on the latest understanding of fluid mechanics, wind engineering and geomorphology. Particularly, the general procedure in terms of the work-packages (WP1, WP2 and WP3) is introduced that can guide railway developers, engineers, contractors, and operators towards the technical solutions most suited for each line and its specific environmental conditions.
We would like to thank the Journal for the opportunity to disseminate the research activities of the project. The full article can be accessed on the Railway Gazette International web-page.
