LATEI is divided into three divisions: Division of Pavement Materials, Division of Traffic Management and Transport Studio and Division of Infrastructure and Engineering Technology.
Division of Pavement Materials
Division Coordinator: Sri Atmaja P. Rosyidi – caretaker
The Division of Pavement Materials (DPM) provides a mechanism for the University of Muhammadiyah, the regional transportation board and office, and the pavement construction industries to become a collective resource for future research and testings on pavement materials and covering not only state and local needs, but also regional and national needs. The DPM will work with many universities and transport research boards in local and overseas, Department of Public Work of Indonesia including Bina Marga, and the regional dan national transportation board and office to develop, promote, and conduct pavement research plus conduct outreach activities related to pavement research. The division will also work with other agencies, associations, companies, or individuals that have a common interest in pavement research and technical consulting.
LATEI was developed from this division and then it enlarges and addes with two of other divisions. Beside research activities, this division has responsibility for conducting the learning laboratory for undergraduate and graduate students in civil engineering for exploring their capability in pavement materials and testings. This division also promotes the value of pavement research and education; and strengthens the regional and national role of the pavement research facility. This division also has goals to attend national meetings on materials and pavement-related topics, provide leadership and participation in meetings with funding organizations, industry, and professional organizations and associations, make presentations to elected officials and media representatives, and participate in efforts to educate the public and students at all levels.
The DPM also pursues funding for pavement research from central government, national agencies (for example, Ministry of Research and Technology, Department of Public Works, Department of National Education), state agencies, and private industry, with focus on regional and national research that utilizes and supports operation of the road-pavement facility. The DPM also leads and assists faculty in the development of research proposals and work with LKPT and Civil Engineering Department of UMY to develop training and outreach opportunities.
Division of Traffic Management and Transport Studio
Division Coordinator: Wahyu Widodo (email@example.com)
The Division of Traffic Management and Transport Studio (TMTS) is a developed traffic and transportation laboratory focusing on design of developed and new road network; and evaluation of transportation management and operational strategies (traffic policy) and traveler information technologies. The TMTS also supports the Civil Engineering Department of UMY for conducting the research, education and outreach efforts, providing laboratory facilities for graduate and undergraduate students as well as educational resources for course instructors and transportation professionals.
The primary work of the TMTS is to support research and study in designing, monitoring, management, and simulation of transport and traffic systems. The division has in works-partnership with other universities, local research boards and centers, regional transportation offices, industries, professional organizations and national agencies to enable a full spectrum and activities of transportations research.
The TMTS together with LKPT hosts training events for traffic studies and simulation, transportation professionals, traffic simulation, highway design, covering topics such as the effective use of traffic capacity for analysis and planning. The TMTS is also fully dedicated to supporting transportation education for national-wide. Members of the TMTS staff work with other faculty members to develop interactive laboratory modules that help students understand advanced topics in traffic management and transportation studies.
Division of Infrastructures and Engineering Technology
Division Coordinator: Sri Atmaja P. Rosyidi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Division of Infrastructure and Engineering Technology (IET) is a new division in LATEI. The division will accomplish the mission primarily by conducting research on projects of regional and national significance in the areas of transportation infrastructure and important issues on development of pavement and transportation technology. The IET has developed and implemented the advanced technology for pavement and soil investigation such as Stationary Source-Seismic Surface Waves, SASW (collaboration with Unievrsiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) and Deflection Method for Pavement Residual Time Estimation from FWD (collaboration with Puslitbang Bandung). The IET has also conducted assessment on concrete structures of beam and column of building using seismic analysis. The IET will develop the visual and computer simulations for visual observation of pavement surface condition and a software for analysing the data to the technical result that has valuable-information for public works agencies in order to plan the rehabilition project on pavement infrastrutures. Currently, the IET division is developing the software of wavelets analysis for soil structures and will explore to assess the pavement and concrete as well. The IET will conduct research to find reliable and cost-effective solutions to the infrastructures development particularly related to transportation facilities in which has national importance. The division continuously pursues the research fund, joint program in research project and studies with regional transportation office and boards, other universities (local and oversea), national agencies and central government.
