Book Description :

The repair, renovation and replacement of highway infrastructure, along with the provision of new highways, is a core element of civil engineering, so this book covers basic theory and practice in sufficient depth to provide a solid grounding to students of civil engineering and trainee practitioners. Moves in a logical sequence from the planning and economic justification for a highway, through the geometric design and traffic analysis of highway links and intersections, to the design and maintenance of both flexible and rigid pavements Covers geometric alignment of highways, junction and pavement design, structural design and pavement maintenance Includes detailed discussions of traffic analysis and the economic appraisal of projects Makes frequent reference to the Department of Transport’s Design Manual for Roads and Bridges Places the provision of roads and motorways in context by introducing the economic, political, social and administrative dimensions of the subject

Book Description :

The new edition of Garber and Hoel's best-selling TRAFFIC AND HIGHWAY ENGINEERING focuses on giving students insight into all facets of traffic and highway engineering. Students generally come to this course with little knowledge or understanding of the importance of transportation, much less of the extensive career opportunities within the field. Transportation is an extremely broad field, and courses must either cover all transportation modes or focus on specifics. While many topics can be covered with a survey approach, this often lacks sufficient depth and students leave the course without a full understanding of any of the fields. This text focuses exclusively on traffic and highway engineering beginning with a discussion of the pivotal role transportation plays in our society, including employment opportunities, historical impact, and the impact of transportation on our daily lives. This approach gives students a sense of what the field is about as well as an opportunity to consider some of its challenges. Later chapters focus on specific issues facing transportation engineers. The text uses pedagogical tools such as worked problems, diagrams and tables, reference material, and realistic examples to demonstrate how the material is applied.

Book Description :

★ABOUT THE BOOK: After the First World War the importance of highways was felt and realized. The concept of highway engineering has changed during the last two decades. The thumb rule concept has become a thing of the past. With the increasing importance of highways for the prosperity and integrity of the country and with the increasing cost of construction and maintenance of highways, the trend of construction, planning and designing has also changed. The Central Road Research Institute and P.W.D. research centers all over the country have contributed a lot in the design, planning road user safety, construction and economy etc. The present work is the outcome of author’s long association with the subject as a teacher and as a student. Efforts have been made to present the subject matter in a very lucid and comprehensive manner. The author does not claim any originality but sufficient pains have been taken in compiling the work by consulting important works and Road Research Journals. The subject matter is presented from the introduction so that the book may prove useful to diploma and degree students as well as practising engineers. The book presents acceptable theory and construction practices. Important topics such as bituminous roads, stabilized earth roads, traffic engineering, pavement design and highway planning and economics have been comprehensively dealt. Hill Roads including construction and layout of tunnels have been given special emphasis. Airport engineering, though it is not a part of highway engineering, has also been touched so as to introduce the subject matter. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Padamshri R.S. Gahlowt, Chairman and Managing Director (Retd). Hindustan Steel Co. Ltd. for his valuable guidance, help and blessings and my friend and colleague Shri G.S. Birdie, Consulting Engineer for the preparation of a large number of drawings and consultations. Any suggestion for the improvement of the book in the forthcoming editions will be thankfully acknowledged and welcomed. For errors or omissions and constructive criticism from the readers and users are welcome. Allahabad T.D. AHUJA 2011 ★OUTSTANDING FEATURES: -Various designs of the Highway Engineering are based on the latest IS Codes. -Several empirical methods of estimating. Evapotranspiration such as modified penman method, hargreaves methods, modified blaney criddle method, etc., are discussed. -Treatment of earthquake forces acting on gravity dams is thoroughly explained. -Detailed discussion regarding the provision of water stops at the contraction joints in gravity dams as per IS Codes is made. -Some aspects of financial analysis of a project are discussed with planning for water resources development. -Number of design problems have been solved in details. -Subject matter is supported by very good diagrams and illustrative examples. -A large number of multiple choice questions with answers are given. ★RECOMMENDATIONS: A textbook for all Engineering Branches, Competitive Examination, ICS, and AMIE Examinations In S.I Units For Degree, Diploma and A.I.M.E.

Book Description :

Highway Engineering provides an introduction to highway engineering for students on degree and diploma courses in civil engineering. The text sets out procedures and techniques needed for the planning, design and construction of a highway installation, while setting them in their economic and political context. Moving in a logical sequence through every aspect of highway construction, this second edition features an expanded section on the basic concepts of traffic analysis and management with worked examples, as well as detailing the development planning process and how highway engineers interact with this. Other texts have tended to concentrate purely on highway planning and analysis, or on pavement design and maintenance aspects of highway engineering. As a result, the standard has tended to be too advanced for students studying the subject for the first time. This textbook covers the basic ground in both areas, featuring worked examples and case studies as an aid to understanding individual topics. The front cover picture and figures on pages 13, 67, 68, 69, 115, 156, 327 and 330 are courtesy of National Roads Authority (NRA).
