This study performs a Delphi survey of grain market experts to assess the future availability and quality of rail services for the agricultural sector. The survey produces several interesting future expectations including (1) further consolidation of the rail and elevator industries, (2) increasing prominence...

 

An economic engineering model was developed to estimate start-up and operating costs of an intermodal facility located on a short line railroad. The model developed in this study has many useful features. Costs can be estimated for different equipment configurations and sizes of facilities. Sensitivity...

 

This project was initiated to develop and select advanced computer programs to improve roadway hydraulic and hydrologic design tools available for use by UDOT engineers and consultants. The development and selection of such computer software that utilizes engineering analysis along with interactive graphics...

 

While SafeStat was designed to prioritize carriers for monitoring and compliance reviews, the ISS was designed to prioritize carriers for roadside inspection. However, both algorithms use similar data to define a relatively unsafe carrier. It would be beneficial if there could be one uniform motor carrier...

 

Six major railroads provided the Transportation Technology Center Inc. (TTCI) with defective rail that had been removed from service. The rail, which contained a variety of defects, was placed into a gauntlet track at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC). This paper is the assessment of those six...

 

This paper contains results of a six-state survey regarding usage and effectiveness of several chemical additives. In addition, a description, and more indepth information on the various categories of chemical additives, is presented.

 

The results of this project demonstrate the need for functional sub-classifications of rural local roads, with design parameters that address the unique characteristics of these roads. Incremental improvements are an acceptable method to increase safety on unpaved rural roads and to minimize liability.

 

The balance of this report will examine the experiences U.S. production agriculture has had with deregulation of the transportation industry. It will highlight the evolution of the procurement segment of grain marketing, concentrating on the wheat origination region, as it is an important export commodity...

 

This project is dedicated toward creating an annual information base on short line and regional railroads. Three years of collection and analysis of this data is complete, with another year in process. In this report, techniques for collecting short line information by mail and electronically are discussed....

 

This study examines the cost conditions present in the Class I railroad industry. Recent mergers and merger proposals have brought forth questions regarding the desirability of maintaining competition in areas impacted by horizontal mergers and, similarly, the desirability of end-to-end mergers.
