Simulating Paving Fleets with Non-Stationary Travel
Proper selection of equipment and fleet size can yield substantial savings in both time and cost. A simulation model of asphalt-paving operations is presented and impacts of non-stationary...

Bellevue Smart Traveler: Phase 2
Traffic congestion in urban centers can be attributed to large numbers of workers traveling in single occupant vehicles to densely clustered downtown employment facilities. This project...

Time-Dependent Analysis of Nonprismatic Curved PC Box Girder Bridges
The purpose of this paper is to present a step-by-step computer method for predicting the deflection and stress distribution duo to creep and shrinkage of concrete in nonprismatic, curved,...

Effect of Future High Speed Ground Transportation on Airport Expansion Needs in the State of Washington
A high speed ground transportation system is proposed to be built in the State of Washington to connect all regions. The proposed system will be approximately 700 miles in length and would...

Medium Classic Rail Traffic: How to Forecast the New High Speed Rail Traffic
This paper describes the current situation of the transport flows by modes in the international relations between Spain and the rest of Europe. Explains the geographic zoning adopted for...

Maglev Utilization of Interstate Highway and Railroad Rights-of-Way
Government officials and transportation industry experts have proposed that existing highway and railroad rights-of-way could be utilized effectively to host maglev guideway route alignments....

The Technology of X2000—ABB's High Speed Tilting Train
The X2000 High Speed Tilting Train was developed by Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) in cooperation with the Swedish State Railways (SJ). The purpose of the project was to reduce trip times on...

ICE-HSR-System—Infrastructure, Rolling Stock, Operation
High-Speed trains such as the Japanese Shinkansen train in operation since 1964, the French TGV (train a grande vitesse) introduced in 1981 and the German ICE (InterCityExpress) running...

Travel Time Data Fusion in Advance
The ADVANCE project in the Chicago metropolitan area is one of several ATIS operational tests currently underway in the USA and abroad. Fusion of equipped vehicle (probes) travel time...

Using VRC Data for Incident Detection
Most existing incident detection algorithms use inductive loops, a relatively old sensor technology that obtains data at specific points along the roadway. This paper discusses the use...

Improvement of Terminal Reliability and Travel Time Reliability Under Traffic Management
Terminal reliability and travel time reliability of road networks are proposed as new indicators for road network management and construction. First, the significance of road network management...

An Information Network for Route Guidance and Travel Guidance Systems
Automotive Route Guidance Systems are being marketed and tested around the world. These systems provide easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to guide a driver to any location in a...

A Framework for ATIS Safety
Advanced Traveler Information Systems utilize advance techniques to acquire, process, and disseminate information to motorists. The main purpose of ATIS is to provide motorists with information...

Simulation of Daily Climatic Series for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
A new approach to the generation of climatic time series for studies of the impact of climate change on water resources is presented. The method adapts a current stochastic weather generator...

Lag Relations for Semi-Arid Regions and Urban Areas
The use of synthetic unit hydrographs often requires the estimation of lag or other travel time parameters. Several procedures are available for estimating such unit hydrograph parameters....

Travel Time in Mountain Basins
An empirical relationship is developed for estimating travel time in high gradient stream channels with natural beds of large gravel, cobbles and random boulders and which are flowing...

The Use of Residence Time to Describe a Hillslope
Queueing theory has been applied to the determination of Soil Water Residence Time (SWRT) using an 18 year data set. The calculated SWRTs agree qualitatively with the lags exhibited by...

Dam-Break Study for Large Floodplain Area - A Case Study
In simulating a dam break flood in a large floodplain, the maximum flood level is sensitive to the off-channel storage volume used in the channel routing. An incorrect estimate of the...

How is the Water Quality Affected by Droughts?
The moving average method was applied to daily time series of water quality and flow data obtained from a stream gaging station affected by the 1988 drought in the midwest of the United...

Chaos Characteristics of Tree-Ring Series
Thirteen tree-ring series from the Salt and Verde River basins in Arizona are studied to distinguish between chaos and randomness. A chaotic moving average model that represents the time...
