Research Laboratory

The Transportation Computational Laboratory in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering (Translab)is designed for transportation students to have access to transportation planning and traffic simulation tools. Translab currently has 10 high performance windows PCs, one Dell Micro PowerEdge 6800 server configured with two 3.0 GHz dual processors and 16GB of physical memory space, and one LINUX server configured with dual Intel(R) Xeon(TM) processors (3.00GHz), 2.5 GB of physical memory space and 800 GB of hard disk space. Key academic software available in the lab includes transportation planning and traffic microsimulation tools: EMME/3, VISUM, VISSIM, CORSIM, TransCAD , and Highway Capacity Software (HCS); statistical and econometric programs including Limdep/Nlogit SPSS, SAS, S-Plus, STATA; programming language tool, Optimization software AMPL and CPLEX, and database programs including MySQL , C++, Matlab, and MS Visual Studio; spatial analysis tool ArcGIS9 .1; and emission/energy models MOBILE6.2, MOVES, CALINE4, CAL3QHC , and GREET.
