In this research, a practical approach to identifying street safety needs for local governments has been developed. These governments are responsible for high street mileage carrying relatively low traffic volumes. Improving safety on these streets is given only limited focus in most small cities. Due...

 

This study addresses the issue of retrofitting reinforced concrete column/cap joints with advanced carbon-fiber composites using full-scale laboratory specimens.

 

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...

 

In 1993, North Dakota State University (NDSU) established graduate transportation options in civil engineering and agricultural economics. Since many aspects of the transportation programs are interdisciplinary in nature, the potential exists for expansion to other departments at NDSU, and for increased...

 

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...

 

Often in traditional design procedures, a designer sketches results which are based on computer applications and transmits this information via hardcopy to a drafter, who reenters it into a CAD system. The inefficiencies are clear and an obvious opportunity exists for productive gain. Recent work by...

 

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...
