Dear Sir/Madam,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Transportation Engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods (Transport). It is a sub-discipline of "Civil Engineering" and "Industrial Engineering". Transportation engineering is a major component of the civil engineering and mechanical engineering disciplines, according to specialization of academic courses and main competences of the involved territory. The importance of transportation engineering within the civil and industrial engineering profession can be judged by the number of divisions in ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) that are directly related to transportation. There are six such divisions (Aerospace; Air Transportation; Highway; Pipeline; Waterway, Port, Coastal and Ocean; and Urban Transportation.) representing one-third of the total 18 technical divisions within the ASCE.

Transportation engineering, as practiced by civil engineers, primarily involves planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of transportation facilities. The facilities support air, highway, railroad, pipeline, water and even space transportation. The design aspects of transport engineering include the sizing of transportation facilities (how many lanes or how much capacity the facility has), determining the materials and thickness used in pavement designing the geometry (vertical and horizontal alignment) of the roadway (track).

Before any planning occurs the engineer must take what is know as inventory of the area or if it is appropriate, the previous system in place. This inventory or database must include information on
1. Population
2. Land use
3. Economic Activity
4. Transportation facilities and services
5. Travel patterns and volumes
6. Laws and ordinances
7. Regional financial resources
8. Community values and expectations

These inventories help the engineer create business models to complete accurate forecasts of the future conditions of the system Review.

Operations and management involves traffic engineering, so that vehicles moves smoothly on the road or track. Older techniques includes signs, signals, markings and tolling. Newer technologies involve Intelligent Transportation systems, including advanced traveler information systems (such as variable message signs), advanced traffic control systems and vehicle infrastructure integration.

Further doubts or queries feel free to contact.
