Abstract: This proceedings, Pacific Rim TransTech Conference Vo. II, consists of papers presented at an ASCE Conference held in Seattle, Washington, July 25-28, 1993. These papers present information on four transportation issues: 1) Intermodal ties; 2) management systems; 3) propulsion technology; and 4) strategic highway research programs. Some of the specific topics covered are: 1) freight movement; 2) intermodal facilities development; 3) transportation control measures; 4) congestion management; 5) rail infrastructure management; 6) pavement repair materials; 7) SHRP performance validation; 8) alternate fuel experience; and 9) real time information systems. By combining the wealth of knowledge and experience on these topics, this book provides the foundation to continue building a truly international approach toward shaping the future of surface transportation systems.
