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...

 

This study examines consolidation of road services by local governments, and explores the optimal mix of roads for rural counties. A methodology for measuring economies in the provision of local road services is presented. This methodology is unique in two ways; 1) it better accounts for relevant variables...

 

The purpose of this project is to validate and implement computer-based statistical methods for the optimal placement of Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATR) on road sections to improve the overall efficiency and accuracy of Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) estimates. We developed two computer algorithims...

 

This research effort is concerned with developing certain policy guidance tools that can be used to generate information that may be used by policymakers in deciding the desirability and utility of employing certain high technology options in solving ground transportation congestion and other large scale...

 

The primary purpose of this study is to develop a research agenda which provides solutions to the problems experienced by rural transit operations in the Mountain-Plains Region. In order to achieve this, the specific objectives of this study are to: (1) examine factors that make rural transit unique...

 

The primary objective of this study was to investigate the effects of freeze-thaw conditioning and overloading on the resilient modulus (Mr) of subgrade soils susceptible to frost penetration. The Mr values of conditioned samples were compared to unconditioned samples. All Mr values were determined in...

 

Communication of current road and travel conditions may potentially reduce the number of accidents attributable to wintertime driving in rural mountain states. This research paper addresses the provision of current road and travel information to road users. There is a potential for using real-time remote...

 

The purpose of this study was to evaluate motorist information needs during adverse winter travel conditions, and the application of this information to changeable message signs. Local commuters and interstate truck traffic along Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming were the principle source of information....

 

This report is a bibliography of railroad labor laws and related materials. It includes cites from academic journal articles, books, dissertations, technical reports, and popular trade journals. Materials are cited for the Railroad Labor Act, the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), Railroad Retirement...

 

The goal of this research is to estimate productivity gains and cost savings in the railroad industry since 1978. Further, prior work was extended by separating output and size variables into measures of high and low density output and miles of track. For purposes of comparison, a translog cost function...
