Handbook of Transportation Engineering

edited by Myer Kutz

The ultimate guide to transportation system upgrades!

For anyone striving to increase the efficiency, performance, capacity, or safety of any transportation system, the Handbook of Transportation Engineering is an unbeatable asset. Packed with practical tools and strategies, this problem-solving resource helps you forge transport system solutions that work on all levels, including the all-important bottom line.

Covering all varieties of transportation systems -- air, rail, road, and water; local, regional, national, and international; freight and passenger, and facilities -- Handbook of Transportation Engineering provides:

  • Problem-solving engineering tools for transportation systems of all types, including mass transit
  • Planning and design techniques, with examples of successful applications
  • Stratagems for deriving positive results from the complex interplay among policy-making, planning, management, operations, and technology
  • Guidance on cost-effective repair of roads and bridges
  • Methods for improving air traffic control systems, airline scheduling, and ground operations
  • Practical applications that solve problems in rail and freight transportation
  • Expert help with noise and air pollution
