The objectives of this projects were to: 1) develop a load test facility which can be used to perform static lateral load tests on model piles, 2) establish a prototype pile and a corresponding model pile, 3) design and implement the instrumentation for the model pile, 4) calibrate the model piles, 5)...

 

Manuals of instruction are important engineering tools because they provide the necessary information to perform important design procedures and calculations correctly and accurately. The objective of this project was to develop a computer-based manual of instruction by implementing tools and techniques...

 

When transportation agencies become involved in the remediation of hazardous waste on their sites, the common practice is to hire consultants and contractors for the clean up process. Because the field of hazardous waste site remediation is changing so rapidly, agency personnel evaluate the consultant's...

 

The results of an erosion control testing study are presented in this report. The purpose of the study was to compare the performance of selected erosion control products under simulated rainfall and sunlight conditions in terms of soil loss reduction and vegetation growth. A total of 19 materials--11...

 

The primary objective of this research was to establish statistically valid mathematical models that can explain the variations in accidents as a function of geometric variables. Engineers and planners will be able to use these models to examine the sensitivity of accident rates to any of the independent...

 

This paper examines the effectiveness of applying chip seal friction courses in reducing accidents on low volume, rural roads. Chip sealing data from District 3 of the Utah Department of Transportation were used to examine accident rates before and after applying chip seal. Although accident rates generally...

 

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...

 

This report presents a brief historical overview of the development of expansive (shrinkage compensating) concrete. Three Utah Department of Transportation projects using expansive concrete are discussed as to the performance of the expansive concrete. On-site inspections were performed on three projects...

 

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...
