The purpose of the initial project was to establish a baseline for the evaluation of proposed fatigue mitigation efforts, to demonstrate the utilization of measures of sleep and fatigue, and to gather initial data for comparison to other previous studies. Results demonstrated that there was enough data...

Aqueous waste streams produced from commercial, industrial, and municipal processes may be potentially reused for transportation applications. The objectives of this project were to identify potential transportation-related applications for aqueous waste streams available in South Dakota, develop guidance...

Bridge expansion joints are a particularly troublesome component of bridges and many departments of transportation (DOTs) are looking for a solution to deteriorating expansion joints on highway bridges. Bridge expansion joints create a break in the structural continuity of a bridge, allowing clogging...

For this research, sensors were used to investigate the differences in prestress losses and temperature gradients in a concrete deck bulb tee girder bridge. The Millville Bridge was built as an access point to the Ridgeline High School in Millville, Utah. The bridge was built in 2016 and presently supports...

Environmental concerns due to fossil fuel consumption and emissions drive transportation industry to shift towards low-impact and sustainable energy sources. Public transit system, as an integral part of multimodal transportation ecosystem, has been supporting such a shift by exploring the adoption of...

Maintenance management has relied heavily on collecting asset condition information to plan maintenance activities and budget allocation. Data collection is often conducted on a sampling basis because of resource constraints. There is thus a perceived need for the development of an effective sampling...

Over the last two decades, the use of advanced scientific and data-driven statistical methods has been continuously evolving to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on our roadways. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Highway Safety Manual (HSM) was...

Perception-reaction times (PRT) and deceleration rates are critical components in the design of highways and streets. This research has several objectives, including 1) evaluate differences in PRT and deceleration rates between crash and near-crash events, 2) assess the correlation between PRT and deceleration...

An experimental research study was conducted to evaluate the constructability, durability, and visibility of alternative pavement marking materials and application practices in South Dakota and to assess the cost-effectiveness of pavement marking alternatives for use on concrete and asphalt pavements. The...

The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) currently has a Finite-Element Surface-Water Modeling System for Two-Dimensional Flow (FESWMS-2DH) and Research Management Associates 2 (RMA2) Both programs have the capability to model two-dimensional (2D) flow around structures. The department must...
