Effect of right-turning vehicles on traffic signal volume warrants by Essam Radwan( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reports on two methods used to determine the significance of variation in the percent of right turns on side street average vehicular delay at two-way stop sign controlled intersections. The first method utilized the Traffic Experimental and Analytical Simulation (TEXAS) microcomputer model to evaluate the right turn factor on side street delay for various hypothetical geometric configurations and volume levels. Statistical analyses of the results revealed that the right turn factor was not significant for any of the scenarios tested. However, the validity of the findings was questionable, as the model was highly sensitive to the random seed number combinations used to generate the simulated traffic stream. The second method involved a statistical analysis of an available set of field data collected at stop sign controlled intersections. The data were divided into two groups based on the number of lanes on the side street. A regression procedure revealed that the right turn percentage was significant in predicting delay for the case of two lanes on the side street, but not for the one lane case

Development, evaluation and application of left turn signal warrants by Jonathan Upchurch( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study dealt with five types of left turn signal phasing: permissive, leading exclusive, lagging exclusive, leading exclusive/permissive, and lagging exclusive/permissive. The objectives of this research project were to: (1) develop a research work plan to conduct a statistically valid study for the development of numerical warrants for left turn movements; and (2) prepare a database of available information on signalized intersections and select the intersections to be used in the future study. This report describes the database of Arizona signalized intersections created in this project, the findings on left turn accident rates for different types of left turn phasing (using a nonrandom sample), and results of a validation study of the TEXAS computer simulation model. It also presents a research work plan for a future research project

Pedestrian accidents in Arizona : an investigation of causative factors and recommendations for safety improvements by J. S Matthias( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research investigated the causes of pedestrian accidents in Arizona to discover why Arizona's pedestrian accident rate is higher than the national average. All pedestrian accidents for 1981, 1982, and 1983 that were computerized in the state accident report system were examined. All acccidents (37,784) that could be located *2.6% could not be located) were plotted by location and reported cause. Accident rates for urban areas were higher than for rural areas. The only identified pattern was that urban accidents and fatalities tend to occur on wide, high speed arterial streets. Causes of approximately 50% of all accidents were failure to yield by motorist or pedestrian and not using a crosswalk. It was concluded that there are no engineering countermeasures that would be useful. Education of the public, particularly children under 14 years of age seems to be the only useful countermeasure. Arizona is heavily urbanized with very little rural population to offset the larger than average rate. The Indian reservations are similar to the rural counties and do not contribute to the high rate, although the rate of Indian reservations is higher than that of rural counties. Volume I contains the text and summary figures relevant to the discussion of the results of the research. Volume II, 113 pages, contains the appendices
Laboratory evaluation of typical ADOT asphalt concrete by Michael S Mamlouk( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A typical Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) asphalt concrete mixture was evaluated based on the Asphalt-Aggregate Mixture Analysis System (AAMAS) procedure (NCHRP Project 9-6(1)). Two sets of ADOT asphalt concrete specimens were prepared using the California kneading compactor and the Marshall hammer. All tests recommended by the AAMAS project were performed. The test results were analyzed using the AAMAS guidelines. It was found that the diametral resilient moduli of the ADOT mixture are within the acceptable range. A typical AASHTO structural layer coefficient is recommended. The rutting potential is low in some cases and moderate in other cases. Recommendations for the evaluation of fatigue cracking and thermal cracking are provided. The potential for moisture damage is high, while the potential for disintegration is marginal
Left turn signal warrants for Arizona by J. S Matthias( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A warrant was developed to choose the appropriate type of left turn signal phasing: permissive, exclusive/permissive, or exclusive. Time-lapse photography was used to observe volume and delay data at a total of six arterial-arterial signalized intersections in the Phoenix metropolitan area. From the time-lapse film, data on volume, number of vehicles stopping, total delay, average delay per stopped vehicle, and average delay for all vehicles was obtained for each turning movement. The effect of the type of left turn signal phasing on left turn delay and through delay was analyzed. A three year history of Accident rates for the three types of left turn phasing were also reviewed. The developed warrant chooses the type of left turn phasing based on left turn volume, opposing volume, number of opposing lanes, cycle length, approach speed, sight distance restrictions, and accident history.

Hazardous material incident reporting system by Essam Radwan( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research effort developed a standardized reporting form for accidents or incidents involving hazardous materials. A pilot study was conducted to test the form and a computerized database was developed to handle the data. DBASE III software was used for this purpose and all program adjustments and operational procedures are documented in the report. Widespread use of such standardized reporting and data storage techniques should greatly enhance the analytical capability of agencies involved in routing decisions for hazardous materials transport or in planning response capability to hazmat accidents or incidents

Interchange design and software analysis by Essam Radwan( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Phoenix metropolitan area has been witnessing a substantial growth in population and urban travel. Over the next two decades, close to 230 miles of additional freeways will be added to the network. With this growth in facility design and construction, different designs of urban interchanges need to be considered. The goal of this research effort is to assess available computer software in terms of their ability to simulate urban interchanges, and recommend a computer program which is capable of conducting both design and analysis applications for different urban interchanges. In the design mode, the program would search for the optimum design that would minimize the construction costs and road user costs. The analysis mode would enable the analyst to assess the system performance for a given existing site. To reach this goal, the following tasks are identified: 1) Review all available literature related to this subject. 2). Acquire and assess all available computer software that directly or indirectly deal with interchange design and/or analysis. 3) Develop a detailed work plan for any recommended software modification or development, and establish the anticipated project duration and estimated budgets. 4) Prepare a report summarizing findings of this study
