A high-dimensional clustering-based sampling method for roadway asset condition inspection is proposed in this study. The method complements existing literature by selecting sample roadway segments that contain multiple types of assets (e.g., signage, shoulder work, pavement marking, etc.) for the accurate...

 

Federal track safety regulations require railroads to inspect all tracks in operation as often as twice weekly. Railroad companies deploy expensive and relatively slow methods using human inspectors and expensive automated inspection vehicles to inspect and monitor their rail tracks. The current practices...

 

Highway project selection and scheduling are traditionally treated as two separate problems in the literature. It is critical to investigate how to select and schedule M&R projects in a way that can maximize their benefit or effectiveness while minimizing the traffic impacts of work zones across project...

 

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...

 

Highway assets, including traffic signs, traffic signals, light poles, and guardrails, are important components of transportation networks. They guide, warn, and protect drivers and regulate traffic. To manage and maintain the regular operation of the highway system, state departments of transportation...

 

Ductile fracture has been identified as the predominant mode of failure for structural elements under extreme loads and the prediction of such represents considerable challenges. Until recently, ductile fracture of metals has been recognized to be dependent on both stress triaxiality and Lode angle parameter....

 

This report describes methods that potentially can be incorporated into the performance monitoring and planning processes for freeway performance evaluation and decision making. Reliability analysis was conducted on the selected I-15 corridor by employing congestion frequency as the performance measure....

 

The overall project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of shear spiking (technique already developed through a previous project). Many timber railroad bridges are deficient but it is too costly to replace them; hence, inexpensive repair techniques are needed. The proposed project will provide the necessary...

 

In this study, we estimated the travel response time between the ambulance locations and the demand points and between the demand points and the hospitals. The estimation was conducted in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by utilizing the shortest path algorithm. The demand points were randomly generated...

 

Innovative lane management offers the opportunity to levy fees for the premium road space. Express Lanes in Utah offer road users reduced journey times for a fee. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has converted the High Occupancy-Vehicle (HOV) lanes on Interstate 15 (I-15) from 600 North Street...
