Proceedings of the 10th International Conference of Chinese Transportation Professionals (ICCTP 2010), held in Beijing, China, August 4 8, 2010. ICCTP 2010 is jointly hosted by NACOTA and Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) with the sponsorships of the Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Transportation in Developing Countries (ABE90). In the last two decades, many large cities in China have experienced rapid urban sprawl, which has been resulted in extensive expansion and motorization of the cities. The threat of increasingly unsustainable urban transportation systems has become a focus of attention as the awareness of the unhealthy interaction between a surging demand for transportation services and the environmental impact of such increases. The goal of this conference, the theme of which is Integrated Transportation Systems: Green, Intelligent, Reliable , is to meet the needs of urban transportation systems in a capacity that is environmentally sound, socially equitable, and economically viable. Some of the topics addressed in this proceedings include: comprehensive transportation planning, traffic safety theory and technology, transportation management, operation technology and systems, and public transportation technology and systems. This proceedings will be valuable to anyone involved in the transportation engineering industry.

Explore the Art and Science of Geometric Design: The Geometric Design of Roads Handbook covers the design of the visible elements of the road―its horizontal and vertical alignments, the cross-section, intersections, and interchanges. Good practice allows the smooth and safe flow of traffic as well as easy maintenance. Geometric design is covered in depth. The book also addresses the underpinning disciplines of statistics, traffic flow theory, economic and utility analysis, systems analysis, hydraulics and drainage, capacity analysis, coordinate calculation, environmental issues, and public transport.

Background Material for the Practicing Designer: A key principle is recognizing what the driver wishes to do rather than what the vehicle can do. The book takes a human factors approach to design, drawing on the concept of the "self-explaining road." It also emphasizes the need for consistency of design and shows how this can be quantified, and sets out the issues of the design domain context, the extended design domain concept, and the design exception. The book is not simply an engineering manual, but properly explores context-sensitive design. Discover and Develop Real-World Solutions: Changes in geometric design over the last few years have been dramatic and far-reaching and this is the first book to draw these together into a practical guide which presents a proper and overriding philosophy of design for road and highway designers, and students.

This text: Covers the basics of geometric design + Explores key aspects of multimodal design + Addresses drainage and environmental issues  + Reviews practical standards, procedures, and guidelines  + Provides additional references for further reading. A practical guide for graduate students taking geometric design, traffic operations/capacity analysis, and public transport, the Geometric Design of Roads Handbook introduces a novel approach that addresses the human aspect in the design process and incorporates relevant concepts that can help readers create and implement safe and efficient designs.
