Soils contaminated by petroleum : environmental and public health effects by Edward J Calabrese ( Book )

Railroad freight transportation research needs : proceedings of a conference, Bethesda, Maryland, July 12-14, 1993 ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The primary objective of this conference was to identify railroad freight transportation research needs, opportunities, and priorities--for both the public and private sectors--during the next 10 to 15 years. Four major recurring themes emerged during the conference: customer focus, appropriate use of information, integration among train system components and between technology and people, and the need for cooperation at many different levels--public-private, industry-suppliers, management-labor, and domestic-international. Guided by these themes, conference participants focused on research needs in four major categories: infrastructure, including track, vehicles, and track-train dynamics; command, control, communication, and information systems; service management; and energy and environment. Safety was identified as a critical topic and considered as an element of each major category
Review of rail transport research needs by National Research Council (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a follow-up of a TRB 1975 study on rail transport research needs. The review was to determine whether research was still needed, whether priorities had changed and whether any new research needs had arisen. The report includes summary statements on the recommended research agenda by AAR, FRA Office of Research and Development, and FRA Office of Policy and Program Development. A restructured agenda shows most priorities unchanged except that energy systems, service quality, accounting methods, terminal management and railroad costs have all been advanced to higher status. New priorities reflect a greater appreciation of increased track deterioration caused by heavier wheel loads, the impact of the energy crisis, the need for improved costing to increase profitability, and recognition that opportunities for increased traffic depend largely on better service for shippers
Advanced Train Control Systems, 1991 : proceedings of a symposium, June 17-19, 1991, Denver, Colorado by National Research Council (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This issue includes 25 papers that were presented at the First International Symposium of Advanced Train Control, held in Denver, Colorado, in June 1991. The principal purpose of this symposium was to bring together a broad cross section of railroad and supply company officials to demonstrate the unique application of advanced train control to all aspects of railroading, to share ideas and technology, and to enumerate the benefits of these systems. Advanced train control means the use of microprocessors and digital data communications to provide new command, control, communication, and information tools to improve railroad operations. The program structure was designed to present the business case for advanced train control, followed by technical sessions that describe the design and implementation of these systems. Papers from the technical sessions are published in this issue, along with papers from a session on advanced train control in Europe
