COURSE OBJECTIVES:
• To give an overview about the highway and railway engineering with respect to, planning, design, construction and maintenance as per IRC standards, specifications and methods.

We're excited to announce the launch of our new website! Visit NameWheelSpinner.com to explore its features and benefits.

UNIT I

HIGHWAY ENGINEERING

9

Classification of highways – Institutions for Highway planning, design and construction at different levels – factors influencing highway alignment –Typical cross sections of Urban and Rural roads – Engineering surveys for alignment- Conventional and Modern method

UNIT II

DESIGN OF HIGHWAY ELEMENTS

9

Cross sectional elements – Horizontal curves, super elevation, transition curves, widening of curves – Sight distances – Vertical curves, gradients– pavement components and their role - Design practice for flexible and rigid pavements (IRC methods only).


UNIT III

HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE

9

Highway construction materials, properties, testing methods – Construction practice of flexible and concrete pavement- Highway drainage – Evaluation and Maintenance of pavements.

UNIT IV

RAILWAY PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION

9

Elements of permanent way – Rails, Sleepers, Ballast, rail fixtures and fastenings, Selection of gauges - Track Stress, coning of wheels, creep in rails, defects in rails – Route alignment surveys, conventional and modern methods-Geometric design of railway, gradient, super elevation, widening of gauge on curves (Problems)-Railway drainage- Level Crossings-Signalling.

UNIT V

RAILWAY TRACK CONSTRUCTION MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION

9

Points and Crossings - Design of Turnouts, Working Principle-Track Circuiting - Construction & Maintenance – Conventional, Modern methods and Materials, Lay outs of Railway Stations and Yards, Rolling Stock, Tractive Power, Track Resistance - Role of Indian Railways in National Development – Railways for Urban Transportation – LRT & MRTS Feasibility study, Planning and construction.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

COURSE OUTCOMES: On completion of the course, the student is expected to
CO1 Plan a highway according to the principles and standards adopted in various institutions in India.
CO2 Design the geometric features of road network and components of pavement.
CO3 Test the highway materials and construction practice methods and know its properties and able to perform pavement evaluation and management.
CO4 Understand the methods of route alignment and design elements in railway planning and constructions.
CO5 Understand the construction techniques and maintenance of track laying and railway stations
