Flood Modeling 3D Lab for Civil Engineering

Flooding can lead to significant damage and loss of life. Flood planning is critical to mitigating losses in the event of disasters. In most civil engineering programs that teach about flood planning, it is not economically viable to develop a physical laboratory setup to simulate flood scenarios. A simulated flood based on a 2008 flood ...

I80/94 Expressway Traffic Simulation for Transportation Planning

The Borman Expressway is a sixteen mile segment of interstates 80 and 94 (I-80/94) and is part of the Gary-Chicago-Milwaukee corridor. It begins at the Indiana/Illinois border and stretches east to the Indiana toll road interchange. The average daily traffic (ADT) on the Borman is approximately 140,000 vehicles, with freight comprising about 30% of the ...

Roundabout Simulation and Visualization

The Indiana route 312 corridor in Hammond, Indiana is a state designated commercial truck route through a largely residential area. In partnership with the City of Hammond and Purdue Calumet’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) the city is in need of traffic simulation and 3D model to create a video showing the ...

Simulation and Visualization of an Airport Expansion Plan

The Gary/Chicago International Airport is planning an expansion to extend the main runway and increase capabilities of the airport. The expansion is expected to attract new business to the region and promote future economic growth.

A major issue with the expansion is a 15-foot-high railroad embankment located near the northwest end of the runway. A portion ...
