The United States lags behind other developed countries in several transportation safety metrics. Progress has been made in reducing the number of traffic-related fatalities, but crashes resulting in death, injury, and property damage continue to take place due to preventable factors. Among states...

 

The objective of this report is to provide a benchmark for elevator managers in assessing performance, and supply a source for recognizing trends in the characteristics of North Dakota elevators. This report and the statistics mailed to individual elevators are presented as a source of information for...

 

This report represents a continuation of analysis concerned with the patterns and methods of distributing grain from North Dakota. The collection and compilation of this type of data began in 1956-57. The objectives of this report, like prior reports, are to provide the necessary database for identifying...

 

Many laboratory studies have shown erratic flexural strength results among replicate specimens of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC). As a result, repeatability of results was very challenging. Given this issue, it would be very difficult for design engineers to make reliable claims about the performance...

 

While many factors influence a community's livability, affordable transportation options such as transit services can be an important contributor. Availability and frequency of transit services vary greatly among metro and non-metro areas, thereby affecting the access to affordable transportation options....

 

Despite bicycling being considered on the order of ten times more dangerous than driving, the evidence continues to build that high-bicycling-mode-share cities are not only safer for bicyclists but for all road users. This paper looks to understand what makes these cities safer. Are the safety differences...

 

To support agricultural logistics and energy development, road and bridge infrastructure has been in North Dakota due to the recent oil boom and the long-term importance of the agricultural industry. With the advance of simulation and data mining, the agent-based model (ABM) has emerged as a solution....

 
Truck Crash Facts (Nov 2018, Issue Brief)

Trucks are an important mode of economic connectivity in rural states like North Dakota. The size/mass difference between 80,000 pound trucks and 4,000 pound passenger vehicles, along with operational differences such as acceleration/deceleration times and turning radiuses, heighten risk for crash e...

 

Discoveries of shale gas reserves along with the development of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing techniques, as well as the initiative to move the United States toward greater energy independence led to the most recent oil boom in western North Dakota (U.S. Congress 2007). Overall, the boom...

 

The highway-rail crossing accident has been long recognized as a priority safety concern for worldwide rail industries and researchers because traffic crashes at highway-rail crossings are often catastrophic with serious consequences, which include fatalities, injuries, extensive property damage, and...
