Monitoring of the 1988 Boca Raton Beach Nourishment Project
During July and August of 1988, approximately 843,000 cm of sand was placed along a 2.3-km stretch of beach in Boca Raton, Florida. Post-cosntruction monitoring of the beach nourishment...

Site Characterization and the Method of Multiple Working Hypotheses

Can the Kristallin-I Near-Field Model be Considered Robust?

High-Resolution Interwell Seismic Experiments in Sedimentary Formations
High-frequency interwell seismic data were acquired to examine full waveforms recorded in the pulsed mode and in the swept mode as well as to perform traveltime inversion tomography for...

A Wax-Coupled Borehole Seismic Detector for High-Resolution Measurements
A triaxial borehole seismic detector was developed for high-resolution measurements at frequencies up to 2,000 Hz. Applications for this detector include three-component shallow reverse...

Directions for Lunar Construction: A Derivation of Requirements from a Construction Scenario Analysis
This paper provides an initial trade-off study among several lunar construction options available to the Space Exploration Initiative. The relative time effectiveness of Extra-Vehicular...

Geographical Information System (GIS) Technology in Global Environmental Evaluation—An Overview
The Land Analysis Team at the Construction Engineering Laboratory is enhancing the GRASS software package to deal with global environmental questions. CERL has implemented the basic software,...

Traffic Data Collection: What Really Needs to be Done?
The collection of 'existing' traffic data such as the 24-hour counts, turning movement counts, driveway volumes, and vehicle classification counts near the proposed project site becomes...

A Guideline for Determining Minimum Threshold Requiring Traffic Impact Studies
Over the years, a number of localities have developed and adopted some form of traffic impact assessment (TIA) guidelines. As part of this study, an informal survey conducted showed that...

The Foundation for a Successful Traffic Impact Analysis
Both governmental agencies and private developers use the information developed in a traffic impact analysis (TIA).Traffic Impact Studies can be an important tool in efforts to maintain...

Analyzing Fast-Food Drive-Up Window Site Impacts
Peak-period queueing at a fast-food restaurant drive-up window was observed. The study found that queueing behavior equations based on random arrivals and service times overestimated the...

Comparison of Delay and ICU Analyses—Case Study
Traffic Management Initiative was a petition-based referendum that sought to limit traffic impacts of proposed or planned development through the use of more stringent transportation planning...

ICU—A Method of Analyzing Signalized Intersections
There is a need for decision makers, developers and the public to understand the potential traffic impacts of site development. Signalized intersection operations are a primary indicator...

Trends in Published ITE Trip Generation Rates
Since 1976...

Trip Generation Rates, a Historical Look
This paper compares the 1990 weighted average trip generation rates of military bases, shopping malls, universities, airports, and hospitals for San Antonio-Bexar County and Amarillo,...

Estimation of Pass-By Trips Using a License Plate Survey
The objective of the study was to determine whether it is possible to estimate the percentage of pass-by trips using a license plate survey instead of the traditional interview survey....

Improvements on Quantifying Pass-By Trips for Shopping Centers
Improvements to the procedures for quantifying pass-by trips (T), handling imbalanced traffic volume conditions, and collecting field pass-by trip data are suggested. A simpler model which...

Hotel-Casino Trip Generation Analysis Using GIS
Trip rates and models for developments such as resorts and major hotels are commonly based on a single explanatory factor or an activity unit such as floor area, number of employees, number...

The Isolated Signalized Intersection as a Mitigation on a High-Speed Highway
A concentrated 'leap-frog' type development is commonly proposed as it offers the opportunity to organize an extensive living-recreation orientated site with low to modest land costs....
