High-Speed Surface Transportation Cost Estimating
The cost of building and operating high-speed surface transportation (HSST) systems in the United States is a critical factor in determining their feasibility. Costs are difficult to estimate...

Selection of Optimum Route and Number of Stations for the Seoul-Pusan High Speed Rail System
The construction of the 411 km-long Seoul-Pusan high speed rail line began in June 30, 1992. The line connects Seoul and Pusan which are the first and the second largest cities in Korea....

Selection and Analysis of Florida's High-Speed/Intercity Rail Routes
Events during 1990 and 1991 in Florida's High-Speed Rail Franchise process have driven the project toward the status of a public works project. With greater public participation than originally...

Maglev Guideway Route Alignment Parameters
Passenger comfort at high maglev vehicle speeds (110 to 134 meters per second) has significant impact on the proposed use of the existing highway and railroad rights-of-way for hosting...

Safety Hazards of Maglev Guideway and Route Integrity
This paper presents an assessment of safety hazards associated with high-speed transportation on the ground. Hazard sources and consequences are identified through establishment of system...

Modeling Route Guidance Systems Using the Integration Model
In-vehicle Route Guidance Systems (RGS) have been proposed as a potentially cost-effective means of alleviating the impact of traffic congestion in urban areas. This paper describes means...

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...

An Integrated Route Assignment and Traffic Simulation System with a Massively Parallel Computing Architecture
This research presents two critical issues in the development of an integrated route assignment and traffic simulation system of ATMS-ATIS applications. The first issue addresses the conceptual...

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...

Linking Hydrologic and Hydraulic Routing Models in Low Relief Basins of South Florida
Combined use of hydrologic and hydraulic routing models to analyze the rainfall-runoff processes during a storm event is a common practice. In this approach, a hydrologic model is employed...

Two-Dimensional Flood Hazard Simulation on Alluvial Fans
The incentive for flood hazard delineation on alluvial fans is development. Drainage plans and flood mitigation design require prediction of flow hydraulics for a range of hyperconcentrated...

Estimating Floodplain Limits for Complicated Hydrologic and Hydraulic Conditions
A new approach for estimating floodplain limits is shown. A hydraulic model with flood routing capabilities is coupled with a hydrologic model to compute river stages. Simulations are...

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...

Mathematical Models for Reservoir Routing Analysis
Various mathematical models exist for the analysis of reservoir flood routing problems. This paper compares recent Runge-Kutta and Euler numerical techniques with the well known Puls approach...

A Method for Conducting Real Time Flood Forecast
In this paper, first, it explains about the real time flood forecast which must be conducted at rivers in Japan. Next, as a means to an end, it is proposing the utilization of runoff computation...

Real-Time Dynamic Flood Routing with NWS FLDWAV Model Using Kalman Filter Updating
Dynamic flood routing model based on the four-point implicit finite-difference solution of the complete one-dimensional Saint-Venant equations of unsteady flow are inherently deterministic....

Applicability of Two Simplified Flood Routing Methods: Level-Pool and Muskingum-Cunge
Simplified flood routing models for unsteady flow simulation in reservoirs and rivers have advantages of relatively small computing requirements when compared to dynamic routing models...

Measurement of Bridge Scour at the SR-32 Crossing of the Sacramento River at Hamilton City, California, 1987-92
A study of the State Route 32 crossing of the Sacramento River near Hamilton City, California, is being made to determine those channel and bridge factors that contribute to scour at the...

Estimating Bridge Scour in New York from Historical U.S. Geological Survey Streamflow Measurements
Historical streamflow measurements by the U.S. Geological Survey an bridge-inspection reports by the New York State Department of Transportation are being used to estimate scour at 31...
