Preface:
Traffic and Highway Engineering, Fourth Edition, is designed for students in engineering programs where courses in transportation, highway, or traffic engineering are offered. In most cases, these courses are taught in the third or fourth year but are also covered at the graduate level. This book also is designed to serve as a professional reference. Thus, the objectives of this textbook are: (1) To be a contemporary and complete text in highway and traffic engineering that can be used primarily at the undergraduate level. It may be used at the graduate level for courses that emphasize highway topics. Due to its complete coverage of the material, the textbook is designed for flexible use in developing a single course or for use in two or more courses. (2) To serve as a reference for engineers in the highway field and as a study guide for use in preparing for the professional engineering license exam, review courses, and preparation for graduate comprehensive exams in transportation engineering. Since the subject of transportation engineering is a broad one, several approaches can be used to introduce this topic to students. One approach is to cover all transportation modes—air, highway, pipeline, public, rail, and water—in an overview-type course. This approach ensures comprehensive coverage but tends to be superficial with uneven coverage of some modes and can be lacking in depth. A second approach is to present the subject of transportation by generic elements, such as vehicle and guideway characteristics, capacity analysis, planning, design, safety, human factors, administration, finance, system models, information technology, operations, and so forth. This approach is appealing because each of the modes is considered within a common context and the similarities between various modes are emphasized.
