For a course in transportation engineering in the Civil Engineering Department.
This detailed, interdisciplinary introduction to transportation engineering serves as a comprehensive text as well as a frequently cited reference. It begins with the basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering mechanics, and gradually introduces new concepts concerning societal context, geometric design, human factors, traffic engineering, and simulation, transportation planning, evaluation.
This SI Edition is based of Papacostas & Prevedouros Transportation: Engineering & Planning 3e US edition, where all examples, exercises and solutions have been adapted into SI units, wherever US customary units were used. The SI edition however has been restructured, updated and enriched. It offers a detailed interdisciplinary approach to transportation engineering. As with the 3rd U.S. edition, the SI Edition is organized in four main sections: - Design and Operations, Systems, Impacts, Supporting Elements.
