Highway Engineering: Planning, Design and Operations

Daniel Findley, Bastian Schroeder, Chris Cunningham, Tom Brown ... 722 pages - Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann; (September, 2015) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 012801248X - ISBN-13: 978-0128012482.

This book helps readers maximize effectiveness in all facets of highway engineering including planning, design, operations, safety, and geotechnical engineering. Highway Engineering: Planning, Design, and Operations features a seven part treatment, beginning with a clear and rigorous exposition of highway engineering concepts.  These include project development, and the relationship between planning, operations, safety, and highway types (functional classification). Planning concepts and a four-step process overview are covered, along with trip generation, equations versus rates, trip distribution, and shortest path models equations versus rates. This is followed by parts concerning applications for horizontal and vertical alignment, highway geometric design, traffic operations, traffic safety, and civil engineering topics. *** Covers traffic flow relationships and traffic impact analysis, collision analysis, road safety audits, advisory speeds * Applications for horizontal and vertical alignment, highway geometric design, traffic operations, traffic safety, civil engineering topics * Engineering considerations for highway planning design and construction are included, such as hydraulics, geotechnical engineering, and structural engineering.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
