Transportation Engineering Lab

The Transportation Engineering Lab exposes students to a variety of traffic studies commonly conducted in the field, including spot speed study, turning movement counts, vehicle delay study, parking study, saturation flow rate study, queue length study, headway study, traffic compliance study, and verification of Poisson distribution. In addition to the field studies, the students will learn how to conduct traffic analysis and simulation using traffic analysis software (HCS+ and Synchro/SimTraffic).
