Evaluation of the Humboldt stiffness gauge by Ali Maher( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report pertains to the evaluation of a non-nuclear means of determining the dry density of soils. The device is called the Humboldt Stiffness Gauge (HSG). The device is essentially a small-scale plate load test and takes approximately 1 minute to conduct. The test parameter from the test is a stiffness value that is averaged over approximately 6 to 12 in. beneath the HSG. A regression equation, determined by the manufacturer, uses the stiffness parameter to determine the dry density of the soil. However, to establish the regression equation, prior knowledge of the soil's moisture content and dry density is needed. Research was conducted both in the laboratory and in the field to evaluate the HSG

Integrated GIS maintenance management systems( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A variety of computer tools are being used by UDOT to serve diverse maintenance management needs. Many of the tools are individually tailored for a specific purpose and lack the functionality to share data with other applications. This has resulted in the establishment of numerous databases which are optimized for focused objectives, but unavailable for broader management needs. Figure 1 was presented to the UDOT Technical Advisory Committee in the fall of 1996. It depicts nine computer task modules (computer tools) being used or having potential use in the Maintenance Division. They are represented by the shapes across the top of the figure. Three types of standard development tools that have potential use for the implementation of broader management analyses are represented by the ellipses at the bottom of the figure. The intent of the figure is to illustrate that a common backbone, or open architecture, would be needed if the data associated with each of the different task modules were to be made available for analysis by standard development tools. The Technical Advisory Committee agreed that the specific objectives of this study would be: 1) To examine the Feature Inventory module in the COBOL-based Maintenance Management System (MMS) and translate the COBOL files into formats that can be used directly by Geographical Information Systems. 2) To develop an ArcView application for displaying the translated feature inventory data on a map of the state routes. 3) To develop a custom task module that directly accesses the translated feature inventory data and displays it on a map of the state routes. 4) To ecommend a strategy to transition from the current situation to one in which data from specific task modules is available for broader management purposes. 5) To include the Orange Book and Inhouse Maintenance data into this project; resources became available from another project in the winter of 1997
Compendium of student papers : 2007 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a compilation of research papers written by students participating in the 2008 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program. The ten-week summer program, now in its eighteenth year, provides undergraduate students in Civil Engineering the opportunity to learn about transportation engineering through participating in sponsored transportation research projects. The program design allows students to interact directly with a Texas A & M University faculty member or Texas Transportation Institute researcher in developing a research proposal, conducting valid research, and documenting the research results through oral presentations and research papers. The papers in this compendium report on the following topics, respectively: (1) selecting warning signs using decision theory and systems engineering concepts; (2) estimating corridor travel time from arterial traffic volume; (3) evaluating the effectiveness of life cycle variables in travel demand modeling; (4) estimating cross median crashes on horizontal curves; and (5) driver workload and visual studies

Neighborhood crime and travel behavior : an investigation of the influence of neighborhood crime rates on mode choice by Christopher Ferrell( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are considerable environmental and public health benefits if people choose to walk, bicycle, or ride transit, instead of drive. However, little work has been done on the effects of neighborhood crimes on mode choice. Instinctively, we understand that the threats posed by possible criminal activity in one's neighborhood can play a major role in the decision to drive, take transit, walk or ride a bicycle, but so far little empirical evidence supports this notion, let alone guides public infrastructure investments, land use planning, or the allocation of police services. This report--describing Phase 2 of a research study conducted for the Mineta Transportation Institute on crime and travel behavior--finds that high crime neighborhoods tend to discourage residents from walking or riding a bicycle. When comparing a high crime to a lower crime neighborhood the odds of walking over choosing auto decrease by 17.25 percent for work trips and 61 percent for non-work trips. For transit access to work trips, the odds of choosing walk/bike to a transit station over auto decrease by 48.1 percent. Transit trips, on the other hand, are affected by neighborhood crime levels in a similar way to auto trips, wherein high crime neighborhoods appear to encourage transit mode choice. The odds of taking transit over choosing auto increase by 17.25 percent for work trips and 164 percent for non-work trips. Surprised by this last finding, the research team tested two possible explanations for why high levels of neighborhood crime would increase transit use: 1) the mode choice models do not adequately account for the effects and interplay between urban form and crime levels and mode choice; and 2) people who ride in cars or take transit may feel more protected when riding in a vehicle (termed here, the "neighborhood exposure hypothesis"). To investigate the first explanation, the researchers tested a number of alternative urban form and crime interaction variables to no effect. Digging deeper into the second hypothesis, the researchers tested whether the access portion of transit trips (walking, bicycling, or driving to a transit stop) is sensitive to neighborhood crimes as well, wherein high crime neighborhoods discourage walking and bicycling and encourage driving to transit stations. The report provides evidence that high crime neighborhoods encourage driving to transit stops and discourage walking or bicycling, lending support to the neighborhood exposure hypothesis

Environmental justice and transportation investment policy by David J Forkenbrock( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project has been to develop a series of practical indicators of economic, social, and environmental impacts related to transportation system changes. Comparing the spatial incidence of these impacts with the locations of low-income populations and minority populations, it is possible to assess whether the impacts would adversely and disproportionately affect these populations. Our intent is to help make it possible for everyone who is likely to be affected by a particular transportation system change to understand the expected types and magnitudes of anticipated impacts. The objective of such an understanding is to enable those who would be affected to determine which impacts would be most important to them

A consumer logistics framework for understanding preferences for high speed rail transportation by Kenneth C Ghert( Book )

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

The prospect for high-speed rail (HSR) service for the San Francisco Los Angeles corridor and beyond first arose in the early 1980s. The enabling legislation required the California High-Speed Rail Authority to connect the states major metropolitan areas. The plan remains to connect California's major cities at a total cost of $33 to $37 billion. The purpose of this study is to reach a fuller understanding of consumer's perceptions of such a service. Consumer logistics theory is used in the study as a framework to begin to provide this understanding of consumer perceptions and to inform future efforts to develop and market HSR service. This study uses the consumer logistics framework to help understand how various demographic groups, various groups defined by public transportation usage frequency, and various groups defined by HSR usage intention level perceive various logistical aspects of HSR service. The consumer logistics framework is also used to develop a macro model that examines the relationship between performance of consumer logistics functions, perceptions of HSR travel value (consisting of travel efficiency and effectiveness), and HSR travel intention for intercity business commuters. The results show the manner and the extent to which the logistics of HSR are likely to lead to customer intentions to use it for intercity transportation and how HSR service providers, by enhancing their consumer logistics capabilities, can encourage intended HSR usage between San Francisco and Los Angeles for business commuters
