This study used the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) South Dakota data to exemplify the establishment of data-driven...

 

This research presents network analysis tools for estimating bicycle demand and bicycle volumes on a transportation network. There are three main procedures used in the development of the network analysis tools: an initial bicycle origin-destination (O-D) demand generation procedure, a bicycle traffic...

 

While high income represents one path to resilience, our results suggest higher resilience in locations with proximity to high levels of employment, with more compact and connected street networks that facilitate walking and bicycling, and/or with better transit infrastructure. Current transit usage...

 

To date, BIM (Building Information Modeling) is not widely utilized in infrastructure asset management. Benefits achieved through implementation in vertical construction, however, suggest that BIM represents significant opportunity for gains in process, material, and economic efficiency throughout infrastructure...

To provide safe, timely and quality services, it is necessary...

 

This report details the outcomes of shear spiking two open-deck, timber trestle railroad bridges and examining the effectiveness under applied loading. The bridges were made available to the researchers by the Union Pacific Railroad and were located in their Southern Region. The first site was located...

 

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....

In relation to travel behavior, there has been a focus on improving our understanding of how the built environment influences one's travel mode choice. Planners need evidence showing how land...

 

As more Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) becomes available to use in roadways, The Wyoming T2/LTAP Center and two Wyoming Counties investigated the use of RAP in gravel roads. The Wyoming DOT and the Mountain-Plains Consortium funded this study. The investigation explored the use RAP as a means of dust...

 

Occupant protection is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to protect yourself when riding in a motor vehicle.
