Proceedings of the Mobile Source Air Toxics Peer Exchange Meeting : October 5-6, 2006, Allerton Park and Retreat Center, Monticello, Ill. by Mobile Source Air Toxics Peer Exchange Meeting( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Air toxics is an emerging area that receives more and more attention from transportation/environmental agencies, academic researchers, and the public because of potential health issues and uncertainties with modeling and the science behind MSAT. Currently 188 air toxics are identified in the Clean Air Act as hazardous air pollutants. Among them, 21 are labeled as mobile source air toxics (MSAT) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In particular, 6 of the 21 MSATs are priority MSATs. They are benzene, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, diesel particulate matter/diesel exhaust organic gases, acrolein, and 1,3-butadiene. There are no regulatory concentration standards set up for the six MSATs. In response to the need for federal guidance in documenting MSAT impacts by state DOTs, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued Interim Guidance on February 3, 2006 to advise state Departments of Transportation (DOT) on when and how to analyze MSATs in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for highway projects. As the science progresses, FHWA will update the MSAT guidance. Given many uncertainties with the new guidance that is still evolving, on October 5-6, 2006 the Mobile Source Air Toxics Peer Exchange Meeting was successfully held at Allerton Park, Monticello, Illinois, facilitated by University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)

Evaluation of hot-mix asphalt sampling techniques by Mostafa Elseifi( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insuring the integrity and security of hot mix asphalt (HMA) samples is critical to assuring the quality of the installed product and complying with Federal requirements. Samples of HMA are often taken at the plant with limited state supervision. Further, samples are taken from a truck where obtaining a representative sample can be difficult. The concept of moving the sample location to the job site offers the potential to address the weaknesses cited above. However, there are a number of different approaches, each with advantages and disadvantages. The objective of the proposed research project was to produce a review of successful methods and practices currently used to sample HMA during production and installation. This included visiting other states and providing detailed documentation of the visits. While achieving this objective, sufficient data were collected to allow IDOTs personnel to draw a final recommendation for the optimum technique to be adopted for HMA sampling in future projects. During the course of this project, sampling practices in six highway agencies were evaluated (Kansas, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Ministry of Transportation of Ontario)

HMA dynamic modulus : temperature relations by Gabriel Garcia( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three-stage study to evaluate Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) dynamic modulus (E*) predictive models using typical Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) mixtures and binders was conducted with the objective to propose HMA modulus-temperature generic relations for pavement design applications. Three E* predictive models were evaluated: the current Witczak model (using different ways to obtain the regression intercept (A) and slope (VTS) of the viscosity temperature susceptibility equation), the new Witczak model, and the Hirsch model
Nighttime construction : evaluation of lighting glare for highway construction in Illinois( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the findings of a research project that studied the veiling luminance ratio (glare) experienced by driveby motorists in lanes adjacent to nighttime work zones. The objectives of the project are to (1) provide an in-depth comprehensive review of the latest literature on the causes of glare and the existing practices that can be used to quantify and control glare during nighttime highway construction; (2) identify practical factors that affect the measurement of glare in and around nighttime work zones; (3) analyze and compare the levels of glare and lighting performance generated by typical lighting arrangements in nighttime highway construction; (4) evaluate the impact of lighting parameters on glare and provide practical recommendations to reduce and control lighting glare in and around nighttime work zones; (5) develop a practical model to measure and quantify levels of glare experienced by drive-by motorists; and (6) investigate and analyze existing studies and recommendations on the maximum allowable levels of glare that can be tolerated by nighttime drivers. The research work was performed in four main tasks: literature review, site visits, field studies, and model development

Phase III : CRS prediction model development by Laura B Heckel( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) determines a Condition Rating Survey (CRS) value for each roadway section using CRS calculation models. After the rating values have been determined, IDOT uses prediction models to estimate the condition of the pavements in the future. The objective of Phase 3 was to revise the existing prediction models and develop new models for pavement types that currently have none. Models were created or revised for 28 pavement types. Both D-cracking and the use of SMART (thin overlays) are known to reduce the expected life of pavements. Therefore, D-cracking and SMART models were created whenever possible
Phase II : CRS calculation model development by Laura B Heckel( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) surveys every state-maintained roadway in a two-year cycle. Images of the roads are collected digitally and viewed at workstations in the office. The five predominant distresses and their severities are determined and inputted into software that calculates a Condition Rating Survey (CRS) value, using models determined through previous research. The object of Phase 2 of this project was to revise the existing models and develop new models for pavement types that currently do not have models. The model form used consists of determining CRS as a function of roughness, rutting and faulting (where appropriate), and recorded distresses and severities. When the research was completed, eight existing models were revised and three new models were developed. Also, eight of the models use 9.0 as the intercept, while not compromising accuracy

HMA dynamic modulus predictive models : a review by Gabriel Garcia( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most important hot-mix asphalt (HMA) property influencing the structural response of a flexible pavement is the HMA modulus (EHMA). Dynamic modulus concepts are reviewed. The construction of master curves for HMA mixtures is presented. The procedures are based on the fitting of a sigmoidal function. In general, it is concluded that both predictive models generate sufficiently accurate and reasonable dynamic modulus estimates adequate for use in mechanistic-empirical design, at least for broad range of binders and mixtures studied
Carbon monoxide screen for signalized intersections : COSIM, version 3.0: technical documentation by Scott Jeffrey Peters( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) currently uses the computer screening model Illinois CO Screen for Intersection Modeling (COSIM) to estimate worst-case CO concentrations for proposed roadway projects affecting signalized intersections. In 2007, regulatory changes in the Illinois vehicle Inspection and Maintenance (I & M) program prompted the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) to recommend that IDOT update COSIM with new EF tables using the MOBILE6.2 model. Based on this recommendation, IDOT and the Illinois Center for Transportation (ICT) provided funding to update the COSIM model. As part of the update, IDOT also requested that the methodology used in creating the original Pre-Screen criteria be reevaluated and possibly revised based on the findings of the evaluation. This report provides technical documentation on the updates and revisions made to Version 3.0 of COSIM finalized in June 2008
