In this research the feasibility of using the Georgia Loaded-Wheel Tester (GLWT) to predict rutting in the laboratory was investigated. The study consisted of modifying the GLWT to handle 15.2 cm (6-in.) cores, obtaining asphalt pavement cores from several test sites throughout Wyoming, collecting rut...

The GEOTRANS (GEographical Optimizer for TRANSportation) is an implementation of a GDSS for rural transportation. Algorithms and specialized data structures were developed to accomplish accurate and efficient solutions of a suite of network flow optimization models for use in GEOTRANS. The design of...

The information needed to plan and operate transit services for people with disabilities is little known to transit agencies and also difficult to obtain. This report is based on a study that was undertaken to determine the travel patterns and transportation needs of people with disabilities, and also...

A research study was conducted to investigate the potential application of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway Systems (IVHS) technologies for reducing accidents on rural roads. After studying existing technologies, their present application to transportation, and approaches to identifying predominant accident...

This report describes a study jointly conducted by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to examine the factors influencing the determination of a subgrade resilient modulus value. The objectives of this study were to first, investigate the importance of several fundamental...

This project included two laboratory studies and analytical work dealing with T-beams comprised of a concrete flange connected to a wood beam plus plywood sheathing. Based on the experimental results of tests of 72 slip specimens and 4 full-scale layered T-beams, the mechanical behavior of different...

This study examines consolidation of road services by local governments, and explores the optimal mix of roads for rural counties. A methodology for measuring economies in the provision of local road services is presented. This methodology is unique in two ways; 1) it better accounts for relevant variables...

The purpose of this project is to validate and implement computer-based statistical methods for the optimal placement of Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATR) on road sections to improve the overall efficiency and accuracy of Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) estimates. We developed two computer algorithims...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate motorist information needs during adverse winter travel conditions, and the application of this information to changeable message signs. Local commuters and interstate truck traffic along Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming were the principle source of information....

This report reviews the state-of-the-practice in low-volume road pavement design. The factors which dictate pavement design are discussed in terms of construction materials, environment, and traffic. Eight different design procedures are presented and discussed. These include the 1972 and 1986 AASHTO...
