Transportation Engineering Laboratory

Transportation laboratory consists of equipments used in the testing of bituminous material such as viscosity, ductility and plasticity and other devices for Super-pave testing of bitumen and aggregate. There are other devices for mix design by both Super-pave and Marshall Methods. Transportation lab provides and helps in performing all tests for under and past graduated students and staff research. Transportation lab offers its service to all government offices and private sectors in the field of testing bitumen and aggregate and mix design (both Super-pave and Marshall) as well.
