State short line railroads and the rural economy( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 32 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
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 27 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)
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
State short line railroads and the rural economy by Michael W Babcock( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short line industry has experienced rapid growth since 1980 and likely will continue to grow at a rapid rate given the stated plans of Class I railroads to spinoff parts of their systems to short line operators in the 1990s. As a result, shipper groups and potential short line operators are likely to request 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 railroads as an industry is not assured
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%
Guidelines for right-turn treatments at unsignalized intersections and driveways by Tanweer Hasan( Book )

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

Guidelines for right-turn treatments at unsignalized intersections and driveways on the state highway system of Kansas were developed in this study. Two types of treatments, full-width lane and taper, were considered over the do-nothing radius treatment. THe guidelines were based on the results of an economic analysis conducted over a wide range of traffic volumes and speeds. A simple model was developed to determine the operational effects of right-turn movements at unsignalized intersections and driveways on high-speed highways. The operational effects were estimated in terms of delay and excess fuel consumption experienced by through vehicles due to the right turns. The relationship between speed differential and accidents was used to estimate the reduction in right-turn same direction rear-end accidents that would be expected to result from the provision of a right-turn treatment. Comparison with other guidelines and validation of existing right-turn treatments at the study sites indicate that the range of the guidelines developed in this study isre reasonable. They are also more definitive because they consider highway operating speed. They are more flexible in determining an appropriate treatment because an intermediate taper treatment is considered
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
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
