Transportation Engineering conforms to the syllabus of transportation engineering prescribed by AICTE for the undergraduate students of civil engineering. The book includes the latest IRC codes and discusses in detail the functional system characteristics of highway development and planning. It delineates the highway standards and constraints to be considered for arriving at an optimal geometric design for efficient vehicular and pedestrian traffic. It also explains the analysis of different types of vehicle and traffic data collected as part of pavement, component and function studies.

R Srinivasa Kumar, faculty member of the Department of Civil Engineering, University College of Engineering, Osmania University, Hyderabad, has a BE in civil engineering and ME and PhD degrees in transportation engineering. He was awarded the Indian Roads Congress Commendation Certificate for the best research paper published in the IRC Journal (2001–02). He has also authored textbooks on highway engineering, pavement design, transportation engineering (railways, airports, docks and harbours), pavement evaluation and maintenance management, and introduction to traffic engineering.
