Highway Planning, Survey, and Design presents the latest engineering concepts, techniques, practices, principles, standard procedures, and models that are applied and used to design and evaluate alternatives of transportation systems and roadway horizontal and vertical alignments and to forecast travel demand using variety of trip forecasting models to ultimately achieve greater safety, sustainability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. It provides in-depth coverage of the major areas of transportation engineering and includes a broad range of practical problems and solutions, related to theory, concepts, practice, and applications. Solutions for each problem follow step-by-step procedures that include the theory and the derivation of the formulas and computations where applicable. Additionally, numerical methods, linear algebraic methods, and least squares regression techniques are presented to assist in problem solving.
Highway Planning, Survey, and Design will help academics and professionals alike to find practical solutions across the broad spectrum of transportation engineering issues.
