From the Publisher:

The first transportation engineering text designed for entry-level courses. Focuses on highway engineering, providing excellent depth of coverage on the major aspects of the subject. Provides an overview of the problems facing the field then delves into the main issues of highway engineering and traffic analysis. Contains numerous examples and end-of-chapter problems.

From the Back Cover:

Highway engineering knowledge you can build on.

Given the continual and dramatic increase in vehicle ownership and travel, and the sheer number of people affected by our nation's highway system, there are few more important and far-reaching fields than highway engineering.

Rather than addressing the broad expanse of the transportation engineering field, Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis, Third Edition focuses primarily on highway and traffic engineering, providing the depth you need to solve real highway-related problems. Taking a concise, accessible, example-oriented approach, the authors bring clarity to the subject matter and present a large number of end-of-chapter problems, allowing you to master the concepts and apply them in professional practice.

This text provides a great balance between depth and breadth of coverage for an introductory transportation engineering course.

Highlights of the Third Edition

  • Updated with the latest standards in highway design and traffic engineering.
  • Clear and direct style of presentation, with significant content and presentation refinements throughout the text.
  • Numerous example and end-of-chapter problems, including a large number of new end-of-chapter problems.
  • Detailed treatment of road vehicle performance––a critical element in understanding the fundamentals underlying highway and traffic engineering.
  • Accessible discussion of the fundamentals of traffic flow and queuing theory.
  • Expanded coverage of signalized intersections, including a balanced presentation on signal control concepts, signal analysis theory, and the practical analysis of signals.
  • U.S. Customary and metric units used throughout (U.S. Customary are the primary units). Appendices contain both the example and the end-of-chapter problems with metric units.
