State short line railroads and the rural economy ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
The objectives of the study are as follows: (1) Determine if short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative to abandonment; (2) Identify the key factors that determine short line success or failure; and (3) Compile a profile of a successful short line railroad to help guide the allocation of state financial assistance. A profile for a profitable short line railroad was developed. State financial assistance is recommended and program components presented. A list of additional recommended public policies is also presented. This study concluded that in the current environment, short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative. However, the long term financial survivability of short line roalroads as an industry is not assured
Exporting Kansas grains to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries through Port Topolobampo, Mexico by Laura D Garzon( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
This study examines the prospect of Topolobampo, Mexico as an alternative port for Kansas grain exports to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries. It specifically attempts to determine whether the said port would provide lower transportation costs between Kansas and its various markets in Asia and Latin America, thereby resulting in a more favorable trade pattern for the state. Least cost transportation of Kansas wheat in 1992 was investigated
Evaluation of corrosion protection methods for reinforced concrete highway structures by Jennifer L Kepler( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Since the 1970s, research projects and field studies have been conducted on different methods for protecting reinforced concrete bridges from corrosion damage. The methods include alternative reinforcement and slab design, barrier methods, electrochemical methods, and corrosion inhibitors. Each method and its underlying principles are described, performance results of laboratory and/or field trials are reviewed, and systems are evaluated based on the results of the trials. Using performance results from the studies and costs obtained from transportation agencies, an economic analysis is used to estimate the cost of each system over a 75-year economic life using discount rates of 2%, 4% and 6%
Employment impact of highway construction and maintenance activities in Kansas by Michael W Babcock( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
The direct employment resulting from highway construction and maintenance activities in the state of Kansas is examined as well as the indirect and induced employment (by state industrial sector) resulting from those activities. The objectives of the study are accomplished through the use of a 68-sector, survey-based, input-output model (Emerson, 1989) that was developed for the state of Kansas by the Economics Department at Kansas State University
Use of guardrail on low-volume roads according to safety and cost effectiveness by Margaret J Rys( Book )
3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to develop guidelines for the use of guardrail on low-volume roads (LVR) in Kansas according to safety and cost effectiveness. A comprehensive review of the research literature was conducted to explore and gather information on the use of guardrail on LVR according to safety and cost effectiveness. The purpose of this information search was to identify the general elements used to determine the need for guardrail on LVR and to review any specific guidelines already in use by other states. The principle findings from this literature review are presented in this report
Guidelines for right-turn treatments at unsignalized intersections and driveways by Tanweer Hasan( Book )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Guidelines for right-turn treatments at unsignalized intersections and driveways on the state highway system of Kansas were developed in this study. Two types of treatments, full-width lane and taper, were considered over the do-nothing radius treatment. THe guidelines were based on the results of an economic analysis conducted over a wide range of traffic volumes and speeds. A simple model was developed to determine the operational effects of right-turn movements at unsignalized intersections and driveways on high-speed highways. The operational effects were estimated in terms of delay and excess fuel consumption experienced by through vehicles due to the right turns. The relationship between speed differential and accidents was used to estimate the reduction in right-turn same direction rear-end accidents that would be expected to result from the provision of a right-turn treatment. Comparison with other guidelines and validation of existing right-turn treatments at the study sites indicate that the range of the guidelines developed in this study isre reasonable. They are also more definitive because they consider highway operating speed. They are more flexible in determining an appropriate treatment because an intermediate taper treatment is considered
Seasonal and hourly variation of pavement deflections measured with the falling weight deflectometer (FWD) by Mustaque Hossain( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
The objective of this research project was to evaluate and quantify the effect of seasonal variation in material properties on the deflections measured with the Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD). The study was initiated to quantify the effects of moisture content of subgrade soil and pavement temperature on the structural response of the pavement. The data collected from October 1993 to September 1994 at each site included deflections using a Dynatest 8000 FWD, pavement surface and air temperatures while conducting FWD tests, monthly precipitation and average air temperature for five days preceding the FWD tests and moisture content in the subgrade using principles of time domain reflectometry (TDR)
Bridge rating using KDOT FWD and the related methodologies by Kuo-Kuang Hu( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of a Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) as a tool to provide qualitative measures of the soundness of a bridge. Field experimentation using the FWD was not conducted during the study. State of the art data acquisition systems, the Lab VIEW program, and acceleration transducers were used to conduct fatigue tests on concrete beams in an effort to find the sensitivities and relationships between the natural frequency and the damping ratio to the number of fatigue load cycles. The development of a computer code for dynamic analysis to simulate dynamic responses of continuous beams and 2 of 3-D rigid framed bridge structures was completed. Also developed was a mathematical model to estimate the reduced modulus of elasticity due to the accumulation of damages induced by service loads. This was done to provide the information needed to determine the proper locations to apply the impact excitation devices and the locations to mount the measuring devices
Review of the effectiveness, location, design, and safety of passing lanes in Kansas by Madaniyo Mutabazi( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Existing passing lanes in place on Kansas highways were studied from an operational and safety perspective. It was found that they generally operated well, improved operational efficiency and were well liked by the public. Determination of highway segments that would need passing lane(s) to improve their operational performance should be accomplished in a two-level process; i.e., Network and Project Level. At the Network Level, two-lane rural highway segments that operate at a level-of-service below a predefined acceptable level are identified. At the Project Level, highway segments identified at the network level are ranked for the purpose of prioritization. The number of highway segment passing lane projects to be implemented will depend on the funding level. At the project level, a detailed economic analysis of different passing lane lengths, spacing, and configurations can be undertaken to set parameters with an objective of minimizing percent time delay. Computer simulation using TWOPAS is a valuable tool to use at this level. The location of passing lanes should be planned along with their spacing. The location guidelines are based in part on the results of field studies, engineering judgement, and "common sense." The location guidelines can be grouped into four main considerations: safety, improved traffic performance, a design consistent with driver's expectation, and minimized construction costs. Spacing between any two successive passing lanes is intended to make the passing lanes function as a coordinated system. The effective length of a passing lane depends on traffic volume and composition, passing lane length, and downstream passing opportunities. The report also addresses the geometric elements relating to passing lanes, including lane and taper length and cross sections, and pavement marking and signing
