Traffic Information Dissemination Media

TV (full time versus conventional news cast), Easy access to traffic hotspots on UW2.TV, Channel 76 on digital cable, Low cost to public (user), Higher cost to disseminator, Short duration message, Misses details, some geographic areas, Only for pre-trip information, Generally not available on demand. Radio Low cost to public (user), Short duration message

Types of 'Timing of Information Delivery'

Information differs depending on what you want / expect to be done with that information General information (congestion/accident ahead) Routing (use alternative routes / modes – usually needs to include specific directions Potential effect is based on when you provide the desired information: Change route, Change mode (if P&R is viable alternative), Give up trip

Frame Structures - Types of Frame Structures

Frame structures are the structures having the combination of beam, column and slab to resist the lateral and gravity loads. These structures are usually used to overcome the large moments developing due to the applied loading. Types of Frames: Frames structures can be differentiated into: 1. Rigid frame structure Which are further subdivided into:Pin ended, Fixed

Types of Infrastructure in Urban and Rural Areas

Transportation, Water and Waste water, Waste Management, Energy production and distribution, Buildings, Recreation facilities, Communication. Transportation: Ground transportation (roads, bridges, tunnels, railroads) 
 Air transportation (airports, heliports, ground facilities, air-traffic control) 
 Waterways and ports (inland waterways, shipping channels, terminals, dry docks, sea

Types of Traffic Models

Microsimulation models track individual vehicle movements on a second or sub second basis. Microsimulation relies on random numbers to generate vehicles, select routing decisions, and determine behavior. Because of this variation, it is necessary to run the model several times with different random number seeds to obtain the desired accuracy. There will be a

Types of Grit Chambers

Check the SLR (1200-1700 m3/m2-day) and Vs (≥ 0.01 m/sec). Grit produced is about 1.5 ft3/ML of wastewater flow. Add to depth {1ft FB + grit}... Assume a depth (D = 08-15 ft), determine the surface area of the basin. And check the SLR (1200-1700 m3/m2-day)... The amount of grit produced is about 1.5 ft3/ML of wastewater flow. Add suitable depth from

What is a Premix and Types of Premix

Something that is mixed or blended from two or more ingredients or elements before being used. This term is used usually for concrete in civil engineering. Sheet Asphalt: A premix of bitumen and sand (with or without filler) and containing coarse aggregate that exceeding 30%, laid in thickness varying from ¾" to ½" (dense carpet, stone metal is discarded and

The Geological Cycle of Rock formation

Geological cycle includes many processes acting simultaneously. The most important of these begin with molten magma from within the earth forming into rock, then continue with rocks being broken down into soil, and that soil being converted back into rock.

5 Factors Affecting Formation of Soil

The formation of soil starts with the parent material and continues for a very long period of time taking 1000 years or more. As the parent material is weathered and / or transported, deposited and precipitated it is transformed into a soil. The parent material may be in the form of bedrock, glacial deposits, and loose deposits under water or material moving down sloping

Freeboard - Types, Determination & Uses

Freeboard is the vertical distance between the crest of the embankment and the reservoir water surface. Free board can be defined in different terms such as: Normal freeboard is defined as the difference in elevation between the crest of the dam and the normal reservoir water level as fixed by design requirements. Minimum freeboard is defined as the difference in

Highway Capacity | Definition, Types & Factors

It is the ability of a road to accommodate traffic volume. It is the maximum hourly rate at which vehicles can reasonably be expected to cross a point on a roadway during a given time period under prevailing traffic roadway and control condition. For multi lane highway it is 2000pcphpl,

Geological Faults and its Types

The faults in which the slip takes place along the direction of the slip is called dip slip fault in the dip slip fault net slip is parallel to the dip of fault... The faults in which the slip takes place along the direction of the strike is called dip slip fault in the dip slip fault net slip is parallel to the strike fault... When the net slip is neither parallel to strike nor parallel to the dip

Types & Methods of Construction of Foundation

Foundations provided immediately beneath the lowest part of the structure, near to the ground level are known as shallow foundations. Such foundations are mostly placed on the first hard and firm strata available below the ground level. Shallow foundations are further classified into the following types: Spread footing or open trench foundations

Direction Measuring Equipment in Surveying

Box compasses must be used with angle – measuring instruments, as the compasses operate only when the line of sight points towards magnetic north. The bearing desired must then be measured from his direction. Circular compasses can be mounted on theodolites and are often permanently mounted on transits. When provided with open sights, they can be used

Culverts Types, Design, Installation and Materials

A culvert is an opening through an embankment for the conveyance of water by mean of pipe or an enclosed channel. OR It is a transverse and totally enclosed drain under a road or railway. Pipe culverts are made of smooth steel, corrugated metal, or concrete material. Their primary purpose is to convey water under roads, although a variety of wildlife use them as
