Transportation Engineering Basics shows students how to use classroom knowledge to solve real-life transportation and traffic engineering problems. This comprehensive labbook addresses congestion, air pollution, transit, financing, politics, and signals. Each user-friendly chapter is designed as lab work, providing essential theory, background information, figures, tables, worksheets, and questions. Each lab is uniformly structured so that the engineering student can easily see and understand the lab's objective and the components necessary to investigate the situation. This updated and expanded edition includes ten new labs and incorporates changes resulting from the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA, 1990) and the Transportation Equity Act of the 21st Century (TEA-21, 1998). This legislation has provided opportunities for transportation professionals in terms of new funds and jobs; as well as set new requirements for monitoring performance and showing the benefits of a project. This book includes information about job opportunities, a section on software use, summaries of transportation websites, a list of esteemed transportation journals, and a glossary of terms used in the transportation field. Teachers can use this book to assign practical work to students, such as conducting research and solving transportation related problems by collecting data from the field. Planners and experienced professionals will also find the book to be a valuable resource. Product ReviewsØ "Overall, this book serves the need of bridging knowledge and practice. It can be used as a supplemental tool to textbooks, design manuals, and handbooks for understanding and initiation of practical fieldwork. The book is successful in covering many essential areas of state-of-the-practice and should interest a wide audience." ?Yunlong Zhang, Journal of Transportation EngineeringØ

Before they begin their university studies, most students have experience with traffic signals, as drivers, pedestrians and bicycle riders. One of the tasks of the introductory course in transportation engineering is to portray the traffic signal control system in a way that connects with these experiences. The challenge is to reveal the system in a simple enough way to allow the student "in the door," but to include enough complexity so that this process of learning about signalized intersections is both challenging and rewarding. We have approached the process of developing this module with the following guidelines: * Focusing on the automobile user and pretimed signal operation allows the student to learn about fundamental principles of a signalized intersection, while laying the foundation for future courses that address other users (pedestrians, bicycle riders, public transit operators) and more advanced traffic control schemes such as actuated control, coordinated signal systems, and adaptive control. * Queuing models are presented as a way of learning about the fundamentals of traffic flow at a signalized intersection. A graphical approach is taken so that students can see how flow profile diagrams, cumulative vehicle diagrams, and queue accumulation polygons are powerful representations of the operation and performance of a signalized intersection. * Only those equations that students can apply with some degree of understanding are presented. For example, the uniform delay equation is developed and used as a means of representing intersection performance. However, the second and third terms of the Highway Capacity Manual delay equation are not included, as students will have no basis for understanding the foundation of these terms. * Learning objectives are clearly stated at the beginning of each section so that the student knows what is to come. At the end of each section, the learning objectives are reiterated along with a set of concepts that students should understand once they complete the work in the section. * Over 70 figures are included in the module. We believe that graphically illustrating basic concepts is an important way for students to learn, particularly for queuing model concepts and the development of the change and clearance timing intervals. * Over 50 computational problems and two field exercises are provided to give students the chance to test their understanding of the material. The sequence in which concepts are presented in this module, and the way in which more complex ideas build on the more fundamental ones, was based on our study of student learning in the introductory course. The development of each concept leads to an element in the culminating activity: the design and evaluation of a signal timing plan in section 9. For example, to complete step 1 of the design process, the student must learn about the sequencing and control of movements, presented in section 3 of this module. But to determine split times, step 6 of the design process, four concepts must be learned including flow (section 2), sequencing and control of movements (section 3), sufficiency of capacity (section 6), and cycle length and splits (section 8). Depending on the pace desired by the instructor, this material can be covered in 9 to 12 class periods.
