Dr Rayya Hassan

Associate Professor


Rayya worked at Swinburne University of Technology (SUT),Civil Engineering, from 1998 to 2005 in different academic roles in . From 2005 to 2008, she worked at ARRB Group Ltd as a Senior then as a Principal Research Engineer in the area of Asset Management. While working at ARRB, she was responsible for managing a number of Austroads research projects. In 2008 she rejoined SUT as a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering. Research interests include pavement performance modelling and sustainability performance measurement of road asset management practices. Other research areas include using life cycle costing analysis in assessing the economic impacts of high productivity vehicles on road pavements, soil stabilisation and asphalt mix design. Her early research work in pavement management resulted in the development of a roughness index called HATI (Heavy Articulated Truck Index) to highlight road sections providing poor ride quality to heavy vehicle occupants. HATI has been adopted by a number of Australian State Road Authorities to trigger maintenance and rehabilitation programs and improve rideability for the freight industry.
