State short line railroads and the rural economy( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of the study are as follows: (1) Determine if short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative to abandonment; (2) Identify the key factors that determine short line success or failure; and (3) Compile a profile of a successful short line railroad to help guide the allocation of state financial assistance. A profile for a profitable short line railroad was developed. State financial assistance is recommended and program components presented. A list of additional recommended public policies is also presented. This study concluded that in the current environment, short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative. However, the long term financial survivability of short line roalroads as an industry is not assured
Exporting Kansas grains to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries through Port Topolobampo, Mexico by Laura D Garzon( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the prospect of Topolobampo, Mexico as an alternative port for Kansas grain exports to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries. It specifically attempts to determine whether the said port would provide lower transportation costs between Kansas and its various markets in Asia and Latin America, thereby resulting in a more favorable trade pattern for the state. Least cost transportation of Kansas wheat in 1992 was investigated
Development of structural layer coefficients of crumb rubber-modified asphalt mixes from in-situ deflection tests by Affan Habib( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report includes the results of testing Crumb Rubber Modified (CRM) asphalt to quantify the layer coefficient values for CRM mixes. Several test sections were selected from recently constructed CRM pavement. The Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) data were collected at 15 meter intervals on each test section during a one month period
Seasonal and hourly variation of pavement deflections measured with the falling weight deflectometer (FWD) by Mustaque Hossain( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this research project was to evaluate and quantify the effect of seasonal variation in material properties on the deflections measured with the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD). The study was initiated to quantify the effects of moisture content of subgrade soil and pavement temperature on the structural response of the pavement. The data collected from October 1993 to September 1994 at each site included deflections using a Dynatest 8000 FWD, pavement surface and air temperatures while conducting FWD tests, monthly precipitation and average air temperature for five days preceding the FWD tests and moisture content in the subgrade using principles of time domain reflectometry (TDR)
Evaluation of the inverted tee shallow bridge system for use in Kansas by Sameer Ambare( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the comparison of the AASHTO Load Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and AASHTO Standard Specifications, ignoring the spacing conditions, with the results obtained from 2-dimensional grillage analysis and 3-dimensional finite element analysis. For this purpose, two software packages were used namely, RISA-3D for grillage analysis and GT STRUDL for finite element analysis. The parameters that were included in this study were span length, superstructure width, skew angle, number of lanes loaded, end support conditions and overhang width. Based on this study, simple equations for determining girder distribution factors in Inverted Tee (IT) bridges have been developed. Additionally, the effect of using both the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) design procedures and AASHTO LRFD design procedures on the required number of strands was investigated
Evaluation of corrosion protection methods for reinforced concrete highway structures by Jennifer L Kepler( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1970s, research projects and field studies have been conducted on different methods for protecting reinforced concrete bridges from corrosion damage. The methods include alternative reinforcement and slab design, barrier methods, electrochemical methods, and corrosion inhibitors. Each method and its underlying principles are described, performance results of laboratory and/or field trials are reviewed, and systems are evaluated based on the results of the trials. Using performance results from the studies and costs obtained from transportation agencies, an economic analysis is used to estimate the cost of each system over a 75-year economic life using discount rates of 2%, 4% and 6%
Employment impact of highway construction and maintenance activities in Kansas by Michael W Babcock( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The direct employment resulting from highway construction and maintenance activities in the state of Kansas is examined as well as the indirect and induced employment (by state industrial sector) resulting from those activities. The objectives of the study are accomplished through the use of a 68-sector, survey-based, input-output model (Emerson, 1989) that was developed for the state of Kansas by the Economics Department at Kansas State University
Assessment of traffic control practices with respect to older drivers by Eric Meyer( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When signage on a rural highway in Kansas was upgraded, the State received some comments that begged the question of whether modern highly reflective sign sheeting materials could, in some circumstances, actually decrease the legibility of signage, particularly for older drivers. Older drivers tend to have poorer visual acuity, requiring larger signs to provide the same legibility as found in a younger population. However, older drivers also tend to be more sensitive to glare and slower to recover from glare blindness. This study was conducted to determine if highly reflective sheeting could cause a reduction in sign legibility due to veiling glare, especially in older drivers. The test was conducted using 60 drivers in an actual automobile and full scale signs and distances. The data collection was conducted in a test facility where external factors could be eliminated, isolating the variables of greatest interest. Older drivers as a whole were found to exhibit poorer performance in terms of visual acuity and response time, but no detrimental effects attributable to glare were observed
Use of guardrail on low-volume roads according to safety and cost effectiveness by Margaret J Rys( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to develop guidelines for the use of guardrail on low-volume roads (LVR) in Kansas according to safety and cost effectiveness. A comprehensive review of the research literature was conducted to explore and gather information on the use of guardrail on LVR according to safety and cost effectiveness. The purpose of this information search was to identify the general elements used to determine the need for guardrail on LVR and to review any specific guidelines already in use by other states. The principle findings from this literature review are presented in this report
