The subject Transportation introduces you to different techniques of highway, alignment and surveys of it. The perimeters like geometric design, cross sectional elements, side distance, horizontal and vertical allignment are exposed while we study this subject. We will study Highway materials, their properties and quality control test. The geometric design of the railway track, the length design of the airport runway are also exposed. The basics of traffic like flow, speed, time travel are also discussed in this subject. We will also be introduced to the control devices and signal design by Webster’s method.
This subject contains marks weightage of 12 to 13 in GATE Civil Engineering. This course contains gate study material for Transportation which includes online recorded video lectures, online test series, e-books prepared by IIT annd IISc graduates.
