CIVE 2210: Construction Materials Lab Dr. Gupta

Research Interest

Dr. Gupta concentrates his research efforts in the area of transportation engineering and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). His recent accomplishments include the development of a non-linear optimization process and design of rumble strips for their effectiveness. His present research of potential precipitate of highway subbase aggregates contributes to the specifications of steel slags. Other current research involves economical uses of waste materials, advance traffic control and management. Among his other interests are optimization of transportation systems and the applications of personal computers in transportation engineering. Dr. Gupta also works in the area of urban planning.
