Using stop bar detector information to determine turning movement proportions in shared lanes
Turning vehicle volumes at signalized intersections are critical inputs for various transportation studies such as level of service, signal timing, and traffic safety analysis. There are various types of detectors installed ...
Estimating intersection turning volumes from actuated traffic signal information
Actuated traffic signals usually use loop detectors. The current practice in many cities is to install four consecutive loop detectors in each lane to reduce the chance of undetected vehicles. Due to practical reasons, all ...
Innovative detector layout for automated traffic turning volume counting
Because of many advantages, loop detectors are the most common practice for obtaining data to control intersections. However, they have some drawbacks, including the fact that multiple detectors are usually required to ...
Biodegradation, Biosorption of Phenanthrene and Its Trans-Membrane Transport by Massilia sp WF1 and Phanerochaete chrysosporium
Reducing phenanthrene (PHE) in the environment is critical to ecosystem and human health. Biodegradation, biosorption, and the trans-membrane transport mechanism of PHE by a novel strain, Massilia sp. WF1, and an extensively ...
Effectiveness of Cape Seal Pavement Preservation Technique in Northern Nevada
This report presents the results of a research study funded by SOLARIS University Transportation Center. The research evaluated the long-term performance of cape seals with micro-surfacing and slurry seal in the Truckee ...
Laboratory Evaluation of Thin Asphalt Concrete Overlays for Pavement Preservation
A significant percentage of the existing lane miles of roadways in the United States, and in particular in Nevada, consists of rural roads. Thus, using a cost-effective pavement surface treatment becomes critical and ...
Development Of Specifications For Engineered Cementitious Composites For Use In Bridge Deck Overlays
Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) material is a high strength, fiber-reinforced, ductile mortar mixture that can exhibit tensile strains of up to 5%. ECC has a dense matrix, giving the material exceptional durability ...
Iron-bound organic carbon in forest soils: quantification and characterization
Iron oxide minerals play an important role in stabilizing organic carbon (OC) and regulating the biogeochemical cycles of OC on the earth surface. To predict the fate of OC, it is essential to understand the amount, spatial ...
An offset optimization approach for coordinated signal systems with preferred measure considerations
By analyzing the limitations of existing offset optimization models about coordinated signal systems and considering the random distribution of road travel speed, we obtain an offset optimization algorithm based on the ...
Effect of Skew on Seismic Performance of Bridges with Seat-Type Abutments
