With the ongoing development of new highway projects throughout the country, the demand for highway engineers is rapidly increasing. This transportation engineering text will help interested engineers solve the highway-related problems that are most likely to be encountered in the field. It not only covers the key principles but also prepares you for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and/or Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exams in civil engineering. Topics include road vehicle performance, the geometric alignment of highways, pavement design, traffic analysis, queuing theory, signalized intersections, the assessment of level of service, and traffic forecasting. This text: Is a focused and concise text that is ideal for understanding transportation and highway engineering. Includes the latest specifications for highway design and traffic engineering released as of 2003. Presents design standards in both metric and U.S. customary units, preparing you for possible future unit changes. Offers insight into the performance aspect of vehicles, detailing the impact of changing vehicle technologies. Uses state-of-the-art methods when discussing travel demand and traffic forecasting. Integrates real-world examples throughout the chapters to show how the material is applied on the job.
