Abstract: Transportation Engineering Basics covers twelve of the most fundamental aspects of transportation engineering. This book presents practical experiences concerning such things as: 1) Traffic control devices; 2) travel times and delay studies; 3) spot speed studies; 4) sight distance and gap studies; 5) level of service analysis; 6) parking studies. Since this document is designed to be used as a text for both workshops and undergraduate courses, students or recent graduates can see how the concepts that they learned in school are applied to actual situations. Those with some experience in the field will be able to use it as a quick guide. In addition, information on computer software applications is presented as well as a glossary of terms.

Subject Headings: Traffic analysis | Traffic delay | Travel time | Information management | Computer software | Traffic speed | Sight distances
