This book offers a detailed, current and interdisciplinary introduction to transportation engineering, planning, and management. The primary audience for this textbook is undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil engineering, as well as those in urban planning, economics, management, and other related disciplines. Professionals working in the field of transportation would also find this book useful. It is a thoroughly updated edition incorporating material from the lastest Highway Capacity Manual 2000, as well as the AASHTO Manual. Pragmatic in approach, the book provides both students and practitioners with an unusually wide spectrum of topics from such areas as transportation economics, land-use planning, traffic flow, geometric design, highway capacity and facility design, public transportation, energy considerations in urban transportation planning, evaluation of transportation projects, and safety issues. The basic concepts and design principles are illustrated through a variety of worked examples. While numerical problem solving has been emphasized, the need to substantiate these numerical results, buttressed by proper explanations and discussions, has been duly illustrated. Several exercises at the end of chapters are the open-ended type questions requiring creativity and critical thinking. CONTENTS: Preface to the Third Edition. Preface to the First Edition. 1.
