Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This text covers the essentials of transportation engineering, planning and management with an interdisciplinary approach. It includes an unusually wide spectrum of topics, encompassing both traditional principles--traffic engineering, transportation planning--and non-traditional considerations--transportation economics, land use, energy, public transport, transportation systems management. Both quantitative and policy-oriented topics are incorporated, each supported by numerous worked examples and problems of varying complexity. The Second Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest information from a variety of current sources. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in traffic engineering and transportation planning,, Transportation Engineering: An Introduction, Third Edition covers a wide spectrum of topics drawn from such areas as transportation economics, land-use planning, traffic flow, geometric design, highway capacity and facility design, public transportation, energy considerations in urban transportation planning, evaluation of transportation projects, and safety issues.

This book provides both students and practitioners with a variety of worked examples illustrating the basic concepts. Material from the latest Highway Capacity Manual (circa 2000) and the AASHTO Publications have been incorporated. The four appendices at the back of the book contain (A) a concise reference on the elements of engineering economics, (B) an introduction to probability and statistics, (C) useful statistical data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, and (D) conversion tables for units of measurement.

This is a good book covering the fundamentals of Transportation Engineering. There are a bunch of typos which irritate a bit, otherwise the book is okay.

This book seems to contain plenty of updated information gathered from many good resources. With the exeption of the very many typos, this book is great.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers most of the fundamental knowledge of transportation engineering. The example is straight forward. You might need to adapt it for the real practise. In the descriptive topic, author has his style/vocab. of writing which is quite tough at the begining to understand but his ideas is interesting.

Don't buy this book. It is awful. It is not based on sound engineering principles, but based upon lies. Please do not buy it, I beg of you.
