Operational experience associated with spent fuel or irradiated hardware shipments to or from the General Electric Morris Facility is presented. The following specific areas are addressed:...

Reliability Curves for Reservoir Performance
Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, has developed a family of reservoir guide curves that illustrate reliabilities when storage conditions gradually decline from 98% to as...

Managing Stormwater with a Microcontroller Operated System
Concepts of managing urban stormwater runoff with a microcontroller operated flow control system are presented. The microcontroller system allows flexible and precise flow control from...

Multiple Objectives, Uncertainty and Routing Decisions for Hazardous Materials Shipments
Explicit consideration of multiple objectives and uncertainty is important in hazardous materials transportation, particularly in regulating routes or making routing decisions. Application...

Simulation of ATIS Strategies to Mitigate Special Event Congestion
This research extends the performance and application of DYNASMART, a dynamic traffic simulation model which incorporates the three elements necessary for modeling traffic flow under information:...

A Spatial Decision Support System for Vehicle Routing
This paper describes the design, development, and implementation of a computer aided system for planning efficient network maintenance routes. The system has been used to design snow and...

Tie Model: A Crosstie Replacement Planning and Costing Model
The Tie Model described in this paper is a maintenance planning and life-cycle costing model for wood crossties. The model includes a number of different failure modules to predict crosstie...

GIS-Based Applications for Rail Infrastructure Analyses
Computer modeling and analysis techniques are important tools being used to evaluate impacts associated with transporting high-level radioactive waste to the proposed national repository...

Experience in the Planning of High Speed Rail Lines: From Feasibility Studies to the Construction Project
For the construction of a new line for high speed traffic, a series of technical, commercial and economic studies must be carried out for each of the parts of the planning stage: the feasibility...

High Speed Rail: An Alternative Route to Preserve Quality of Life in the Northwest
The impacts of population growth threaten quality of life in the Pacific Northwest. Existing transportation systems cannot meet projected demand nor special needs of an aging society....

Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) System Integration with Other Urban and Inter-City Transportation Modes
Hypothetical intracity maglev routes are applied to 11 United States metropolitan areas to enhance intermodal passenger transfers at existing bus terminals, metro stops, rail stations,...
