Transportation: Mobility, Longevity, and Sustainability
The focus of this center is on applied research and applications, through the use of materials engineering and advanced manufacturing to increase the longevity, mobility, and sustainability of the Nation’s Transportation Infrastructure. The Center for Transportation and Materials Engineering addresses several objectives of the Federal Transportation Research Goals:
Specific efforts focus on the following objectives:
Moreover, in addition, other areas of research and applied interest include:
Linking the Growing Oil and Mining Industries in Mahoning and Trumbull County
You can veiw the project below or download the Google Earth KMZ file here
Note: You must have Google Earth downloaded on your computer to run this file
(It's Free!) You can find directions by veiwing more
Once you have saved the KMZ file, you can open Google Earth, and under "File" in the top left click Open. You will need to Browse and find the saved KMZ file. After you have located the file, double click on it and it should open in Google Earth.
If you look at the sidebar on the left, there are three sections, "Search", "Places", and "Layers". If you cannot see a section, double click the title and it will expand. The KMZ file loads in the "Places" Section under the folder titled "Temporary Places".
Click the little white arrow on the left of the folder title. This expands the folder and you should see CTME 2.kmz with an Earth icon next to it.
There will be another little white arrow to the left of "CTME 2.kmz" which will expand the file and you should see another folder titled "CTME".
If you click the white arrow to expand that folder, you should see the seven pieces which comprise the project.
[1. Shale Operators 2. Utica Wells 3. Marcellus Wells 4. Youngstown Hub 5. CSX Railroad 6. Mining Industries 7. Other Resources]
You can continue to expand the various pieces in the file.
There should also be little white boxes to the left.
By clicking the little white boxes, a check should appear, indicating the piece is active, and the layers associated should appear on the map.
You can check as many white boxes at a time as you would like.
So, for example, once you have expanded the file and you can see the seven pieces of the project, you can click the white box next to the piece titled "Utica Shale Wells". This will make that piece active and you should see arrows appear on the map indicating where the Utica Shale wells are located in Mahoning and Trumbull County.
You can zoom in and out of the Map to get a better view.
You can continue to make various parts and pieces active, depending on what you are looking for. If the white arrow appears on the left, it means the section can be broken down into smaller parts which you can hide or make active by clicking the box.
If a Title appears underlined and blue, there is information associated with it. You can click on the title and a bubble will appear on the map with all the information associated.
If the map seems cluttered with other, unnecessary layers, in the third section of the left side bar titled "Layers", you should be able to deactivate all the layers that come included with Google Earth that you do not wish to see.
