Research Lab: Transportation Laboratory

Civil and Environmental Engineering department of IUT has been doing remarkable research in the field of transportation engineering. Since its beginning the students of this department have contributed in the fields of road safety, traffic management, and intelligent transportation system and in other challenging fields. Currently CEE department of IUT is having the only micro simulation and macro simulation lab in Bangladesh. Micro simulation and macro simulation are the modern tools that are needed for the transportation engineers of this generation to handle modern day traffic problems along with learning the traditional methods. CEE department of IUT aims to incorporate the students with knowledge about latest advancements in transportation sectors and also to make them capable of using those tools in their favor.

The transportation lab includes a vast collection of equipment, to assist students I'm completing the laboratory exercises, and to increase their understanding of these important topics like,

  • Aggregate Impact Value
  • Aggregate Crushing Value
  • Flakiness Index
  • Elongation Index
  • Angularity Number
  • California Bearing Ratio
  • Marshall Method of Mix Design
  • Lab In-Charge: Dr. Shakil Mohammad Rifaat

    Supporting Staff: Md. Nafis Imtiyaz
