Over the past decade, a global effort has been initiated to conserve and protect natural resources for future generations, and to protect human health through environmental stewardship. However, the “Go Green” campaign is challenged on a daily basis by the population’s increasing needs of land use and transportation. The University of Cincinnati joins the cause and looks to become an innovator in the realm of eco-friendliness.
The Ohio Transportation Engineering Conference is a two-day conference attended by over 2,800 people from across the United States. OTEC is co-sponsored by the Ohio Department of Transportation and The Ohio State University, and the conference is organized to provide something for everyone interested in Ohio’s transportation industry. The program addresses the latest policies and technical information, as well as covering new ideas in transportation policies, planning, design, construction, maintenance, operation, local government, and management of transportation resources.
Heng Wei, PhD and CEAS School of Advanced Structures Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, presented his research at the recent OTEC on a model which projects traffic-related emission and energy consumption demand based on various land-use and traffic management scenarios. The presentation title is “Approach for Integrating Regional Level and Corridor Level Conformity Analysis.” Wei presented Wednesday, Oct. 31 at “Session: Transportation Research at Universities in Ohio.”
