"Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering: A Multimodal Systems Approach" is intended for the first course in Transportation Engineering. Combining topics that are essential in an introductory course with information that is of interest to those who want to know why certain things in transportation are the way they re, the text places a strong emphasis on the relationship between the phases of a transportation project. The text familiarizes students with the standard terminology and resources involved in transportation engineering, provides realistic scenarios for students to analyze. and offers numerous examples designed to develop problem-solving skills. Features: Non-automobile modes addressed extensively: Public transit, air transportation, and freight modes. Purposeful, but flexible sequence of topics. Ongoing case study of a single region called "Mythaca," which shows students the interconnections between many transportation issues. Chapter opening scenarios: Each chapter begins with a scenario designed to orient students to a transportation problem that might confront a transportation engineer. Scenarios, examples, and homework problems based on the extensive experience of the authors. Traditional, standard transportation engineering combined with the needs of future transportation engineering. Special Discussion Boxes: "Think About It" boxes provide students with highlighted topics and concepts to reinforce material.

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
