Applications of Software in Traffic Engineering

It is the mathematical modeling of transportation systems (e.g., freeway junctions, arterial routes, roundabouts, downtown grid systems, etc.) through the application of computer software to better help plan, design and operate transportation systems. Simulation in transportation is important because it can study models too complicated for analytical or

Trip Distribution Models

The gravity model is the most popular of all the trip distribution models. It allows the effect of differing physical planning strategies, travel costs and transportation systems to be taken into account. Within it, existing data is analyzed in order to obtain a relationship between trip volumes and the generation. The cells within a trip matrix indicate the number of trips

Factors Affecting Trip Generation in Traffic Studies

The trip generation aims at predicting the total number of trips generated and attracted to each zone of the study area. In other words this stage answers the questions to / how many trips" originate at each zone, from the data on household and socioeconomic attributes. Purpose of the trip generation studies is to predict the number of the trips to be made

Travel Demand Forecasting (Analysis)

Trip generation models strive to predict the number of trips generated by a zone. These models try to mathematically describe the decision-to-travel phase of the sequential demand analysis procedure. It may be mentioned here that typically the term trip generation is used to mean trip production -- generally the trips made from households, and trip attraction

Factors Affecting Road / Highway Classification

To identify the classification to which any road belongs, the following factors should be considered: SERVICE FUNCTION:- Most roads provide service to traffic, access to land or both. Following road type provide the service function given as; Freeways and Arterials ==> provide the movement of through traffic. Local roads ==> are used almost exclusively for land

5 Major Classes of Roads

Their main function is to facilitate regional distribution of traffic (intercity movement). They may be national or provincial roads and the type of facilities found in this class are freeways, expressways, dual carriageways and single carriageway main roads. This class of road forms the primary network for the urban area as a whole. All long distance traffic movements to

What is Ballast, Materials for Ballast and Screening

The ballast should be renewed from time to time, because due to continuous hammering the ballast converted into the powder form. This powder along with dust, sand ashes from locomotive form an impervious layer and prevent the ease flow of water through ballast. Ballast maximum size is 1.9 to 5.0 cm with some reasonable proportion of intermediate sizes.

Rail Joints - Definition and Types of Railway Joints

The purpose of the rail joint are to hold the two ends of the rail in place and act as a bridge between rail ends. Joint is made up of two bars or more commonly called angled bars. Joint bars prevent lateral or vertical movement of the rail ends and permit the longitudinal movement of the rails for expanding or contracting. ermit the longitudinal movement of the rails for expanding or contracting. Standard Compromise Insulated Joints

Railway Gauges - Types of Railway Gauges

All rail cars and locomotives built to this specification can use any standard gauge railroad line in the world. However, not all railroads have been built to standard gauge. In the United States, gauge can vary slightly between 4 feet, 8.5 inches to 4 feet, 9.5 inches (1,460 mm). Gauge is the measure of distance between the railroad rails. The distance is usually

Components of an Airport

Automobile parking area: This should be on city side. Hangars: These are for servicing, repair and storage aircrafts. They may be located on one side of terminal building. Gate position: It is a space allotted to an aircraft for parking at a loading apron. Runway: It is a paved long and narrow rectangular strip which is actually used for landing and take off of aeroplanes.

Important Definitions in Airport Engineering

It involves the design and construction of facilities for the landing, take off, movement of aircraft on the ground, parking of aeroplanes on loading aprons, maintenance and repairs of areas, access roads from the city side to airport, and handling of passengers, baggage and freight. Aviation means flying with the aid of a machine, heaver than air.

Reasons for the Repeated Repairing of Nowshera-Peshawar Highway GT Road

Roads are designed for a specific volume of traffic and load and beyond which it may fail. By crossing the elastic limit of the materials used in the construction of the roads. Over loading by commercial trucks in Pakistan is a serious problem. The heavily over-loaded trucks stress the road structure beyond their safe bearing capacity. As a result of which roads break up. The

Peshawar Rapid Bus Transit Route Map

The proposed BRT corridor of 25.8km is designed as a signal free corridor, which starts from Chamkani on GT Road through Pir Zakori Bridge, Peshawar Bus Terminal, Hashtnagri, Hospital Road, Khyber Bazar, Soekarno Chowk, Shoba Chowk, Railway Road, Sunehri Masjid Road, Aman Chowk, University Road, Jamrud Road and terminates at Hayatabad Phase-V.

What is BRT Peshawar and its Project Details

BRT stands for Bus Rapid Transit. Bus rapid transit (BRT, BRTS, busway, transitway) is a bus-based public transport system designed to improve capacity and reliability relative to a conventional bus system. A BRT corridor is a section of road or contiguous roads served by a bus route or multiple bus routes with a minimum length of 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) that has dedicated

Types of Road Intersections and Highway Crossings

Intersection also commonly known as crossroad is any place where two or more than two roads intersect or meet each other at grade. According to a source there are total 973 intersections in Karachi City. Intersections may be signalized or non-signalized, may or may not have a roundabout. The intersections encompassed by a roundabout are considered as safe
