Explore the Art and Science of Geometric Design The Geometric Design of Roads Handbook covers the design of the visible elements of the road—its horizontal and vertical alignments, the cross-section, intersections, and interchanges. Good practice allows the smooth and safe flow of traffic as well as easy maintenance. Geometric design is covered in depth. The book also addresses the underpinning disciplines of statistics, traffic flow theory, economic and utility analysis, systems analysis, hydraulics and drainage, capacity analysis, coordinate calculation, environmental issues, and public transport. Background Material for the Practicing Designer A key principle is recognizing what the driver wishes to do rather than what the vehicle can do. The book takes a human factors approach to design, drawing on the concept of the "self-explaining road." It also emphasizes the need for consistency of design and shows how this can be quantified, and sets out the issues of the design domain context, the extended design domain concept, and the design exception. The book is not simply an engineering manual, but properly explores context-sensitive design. Discover and Develop Real-World Solutions Changes in geometric design over the last few years have been dramatic and far-reaching and this is the first book to draw these together into a practical guide which presents a proper and overriding philosophy of design for road and highway designers, and students. This text: Covers the basics of geometric design Explores key aspects of multimodal design Addresses drainage and environmental issues Reviews practical standards, procedures, and guidelines Provides additional references for further reading A practical guide for graduate students taking geometric design, traffic operations/capacity analysis, and public transport, the Geometric Design of Roads Handbook introduces a novel approach that addresses the human aspect in the design process and incorporates relevant concepts that can help readers create and implement safe and efficient designs.

SPON'S CIVIL ENGINEERING AND HIGHWAY WORKS PRICE BOOK 2018 from AECOM gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works. It provides a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated. cost guidance is given at a number of levels, varying from the more general functional costs to detailed unit costs, and in conformity with CESMM4 and the Highways Method of Measurement. This 32nd edition incorporates a general update of prices in consultation with leading manufacturers, suppliers and specialist contractors -- especially in line with changes in the labour force and devaluation of the pound: Adjustments to the scope, range and detail of information help the user adjust unit costs with reference to allocated resources and outputs Resource costing in Part 4 is supplemented by the further advice on output factors in Part 10. Rail rates have been heavily revised, as the rail sector is currently overstretched. Man hours methodology has been generally used instead of gang rates, clarifying labour costs and output Use the access code inside the front cover of the book to get set up with a VitalSource® ebook of this 2018 edition. This versatile and powerful online data viewing package is available for use until the end of December 2018. In a time when it is essential to gain 'competitive advantage' in a sometimes turbulent market, this price book provides instant-access cost information and forms a one-stop reference. ... along with the standard features you have come to expect from SPON'S CIVIL ENGINEERING AND HIGHWAY WORKS PRICE BOOK: for budgeting: estimating principles, on-cost advice, method-related charges for resource costings: labour costs, plant costs, material prices for rapid cost information: approximate estimates, dayworks, cost indices for plant and labour allowances: production rates, outputs, man hour constants for detailed pricing: unit costs with full breakdown, or specialist prices, with advice on item coverage, waste allowances and comparative costs for incidental advice: tables and formulae, technical information, professional advice updates, free of charge, two or three times a year – see inside for registration details.

First published in 1995, the award-winning Civil Engineering Handbook soon became known as the field's definitive reference. To retain its standing as a complete, authoritative resource, the editors have incorporated into this edition the many changes in techniques, tools, and materials that over the last seven years have found their way into civil engineering research and practice. The Civil Engineering Handbook, Second Edition is more comprehensive than ever. You'll find new, updated, and expanded coverage in every section. In fact, more than 1/3 of the handbook is new or substantially revised. In particular you'll find increased focus on computing reflecting the rapid advances in computer technology that has revolutionized many aspects of civil engineering. You'll use it as a survey of the field, you'll use it to explore a particular subject, but most of all you'll use The Civil Engineering Handbook to answer the problems, questions, and conundrums you encounter in practice.

"This major work provides guidelines for the geometric design of major urban roads and has been prepared by Austroads member agencies and industry experts to promote a common, standard approach to urban road design across Australia and New Zealand. Geometric road design guidelines are used as an aid to achieving consistent and operationally effective road designs. This guide represents the combined experience and international best practices of Austroads member agencies and industry experts in this area of geometric design. The result is an up-to-date coverage of Australian and New Zealand road design practice. Urban Road Design includes: definition of major urban roads; fundamental design considerations including performance requirements, traffic volumes and environmental considerations; design inputs such as speed and sight distance; geometric design guidelines for horizontal, vertical alignment, and cross section; other considerations such as intersections at grade, road safety and drainage and comprehensive glossary of terms. Urban Road Design is intended for use by general and local government practitioners working in road and traffic engineering and other related disciplines. Undergraduate and postgraduate students may also use it." - AustRoads website.

In the past few decades, the field of transportation has changed dramatically. Deregulation and greater reliance on markets and the private sector has helped to reconfigure the transport industries, while the rise of intermodal goods and global commerce has produced efficiencies of operation and a greater interdependence among transport modes. In addition, security issues have moved to the forefront as officials struggle with the challenge of protecting the vast transportation system while maintaining its operational efficiencies and effectiveness. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the Handbook of Transportation Policy and Administration addresses the changes facing the field of transportation. Organized into five sections, it describes and analyzes major modes of transportation and components of the contemporary transportation system. Later chapters consider policy and administration and focus on managing transportation systems and assets. The final section covers security and protection of transportation systems. The handbook explores continuing development in the US and other nations, with an emphasis on the challenges created by technological change, globalization of the world economy, and the threat of terrorism. It examines the current state of major modes of transportation (air, rail, highways, waterways, ports, urban mass transit) and presents public policies and management approaches to make transportation systems efficient, innovative, and responsive. Drawing from scholars in a wide range of disciplines, including public policy, public administration, geography, economics, business logistics, engineering, and management, the Handbook of Transportation Policy and Administration serves as a comprehensive, single-volume reference for scholars, students, public officials, business and civic leaders, and transportation practitioners.
