Transportation Engineering Laboratory
Objectives: The objective of transportation Engineering Laboratory is to learn the Principles and Procedure of testing of material required for highway construction like Bitumen, aggregates, murum.
Context: The lab is designed in such a way that the student does an in-depth analysis of aggregate, bitumen and bitumen mixes. The testing of various qualities of aggregates like crushing strength, impact strength and specific gravity and that of bitumen like softening , fire and flash point, viscosity, moisture content are carried out.
Equipment: This lab is equipped with Los Angles Abrasion testing machine, Marshall Stability Apparatus, Universal Penetrometer, Ductility Testing Machine, Centrifuge Extractor, Ring and Ball Apparatus, Water bath, Standard tar viscometer, Blaine’s air permeability.
