Current Research:

Dr. Salman’s research interests lie in the broad area of infrastructure asset management, and particularly on the processes of development of deterioration models and risk assessment procedures, and execution of sustainable repair, rehabilitation, and replacement practices. He has been involved in research projects that focus on various aspects of management of drainage infrastructure systems, wastewater collection lines, and transportation systems. Dr. Salman’s current research efforts aim to support these studies and are directed towards improvement of the decision-making strategies involved in different stages of infrastructure management practices. He is currently leading a research project in which the objective is to investigate innovative maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation (MRR) techniques that can be applied to asphalt roadways in an effort to reduce the economic, environmental, and social impacts associated with these activities.
