Transportation Engineering Lab
The Transportation Engineering Laboratory is located in room 210 of the F.L. Castleman building. The lab is currently used for teaching UG and Grad courses, as well as research activities.
|The Transportation Lab houses a powerful, yet mini-supercomputer (Dell Precision T7400). The computer flaunts Two Quad Core Xeon CPUs X5482, 3.20GHz with 32GB DDR2. Dual nVidia Quadro FX1700, 10,000 RPM hard drive. Machine commonly used for research applications, Matlab and Finite Element Analysis simulations to be specific.|
Additionally, faculty works with the equipment and infrastructure of the Advanced Pavement Laboratory.
The faculty of the Transportation and Urban Engineering group perform diverse research funded from the Connecticut Department of Transportation, the Center for Transportation and Urban Planning, Federal Highway Administration, Strategic Highway Research Program, U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Cooperative Research Program and New England Transportation Consortium.
