In a previous related study conducted by the University of Wyoming (Phase I), fatigue cracking of traffic signal poles was determined to be related to the average wind speed (Price 2009). However, high-mast data did not indicate the same direct average wind speed fatigue cracking relationship behavior....

 

Recent design requirements for traffic signal and sign structures incorporated fatigue load criteria related to wind that are producing significant increases in size and cost. The Fourth Edition of the AASHTO Luminaire and Traffic Signal Specification (2002 with interims) specification is a significant...

 

The principal investigators addressed many aspects of distance learning in a recently taught TEL8 course on bridge engineering. Their efforts are outlined in this report with respect to this course. The fruit of their effort is a better and more technologically advanced method of coupling TEL8 courses...

 

The principle objective of this report is to describe a methodology for the development of user interfaces that is appropriate for existing engineering software. This methodology is appropriate for applications that are specialized and may not command the market required for extensive broad based commercial...

 

The objective of this project is to provide local transportation officials with the information required to make sound decisions on the management of the bridges within their jurisdiction. Automated procedures were developed to prioritize the required maintenance, rehabilitation, or replacement (MR&R)...

 

The two major objectives for this report were to develop effective methods for: (1) enhancing the user interfaces for existing transportation software; and (2) linking design applications directly to computer-aided design. This document outlines the results obtained in meeting the second objectives....

 

This documentation includes detailed information on each subroutine used to draw the entities supported by UWGRAPH. These descriptions include the definitions of the arguments, an example of the subroutine usage, and a graphical illustration of the arguments. Compilation instructions are included for...

 

This study was initiated by the Bridge Branch of the Wyoming Transportation Department to provide direction in optimizing CAD usage. Critical issues in managing computing resources in a design operation are staffing, maintaining, and financing a highly dynamic system. Managing such a system properly...

 

Often, a traditional design procedure is used wherein a designer sketches results which are based on computer applications and transmits this information via hard copy to a drafter, who re-enters it into a CAD system. The inefficiencies are clear and an obvious opportunity exists for productive gain....

 

The finite strip method was used to develop an automated procedure for determining the distribution of load on highway bridges subjected to both standard truck loads and overload permit vehicle loads. The distribution factors obtained by this procedure are used in the design and load rating of highway...
