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
Development of structural layer coefficients of crumb rubber-modified asphalt mixes from in-situ deflection tests by Affan Habib( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
This report includes the results of testing Crumb Rubber Modified (CRM) asphalt to quantify the layer coefficient values for CRM mixes. Several test sections were selected from recently constructed CRM pavement. The Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) data were collected at 15 meter intervals on each test section during a one month period
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%
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 25 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
A review of Kansas Department of Transportation's reflective sheeting policy by Edward R Russell( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
The main objective of this study was to determine the best, cost-effective policy, consistent with safety, for sign sheeting material to be used on signs and construction work zone traffic control devices on State highways in Kansas. The investigation consisted of reviewing literature, contacting knowledgeable traffic engineers and research, conducting a survey of selected States' practice, conducting a life-cycle cost analysis, and reviewing a previous reflective sheeting study conducted for the Kansas Department of Transportation (Bellomo-McGee Inc., 1988)
Wide-base truck tire effects on pavement performance and vehicle regulatory legislation by Raymond K Moore( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Current operating practice in the trucking industry related to tire pressures and truck tires are summarized. Findings of recent (since 1987) pertiment pavement performance research including both full-scale and analytical pavement response and performance studies are discussed. Pertinent findings developed in previous literature reviews are also included. Regulatory approaches developed by the various states based on information from a telephone survey conducted during July and August 1991 are included. Economic analyses are used to compare the increased annualized bituminous pavement rehabilitation costs with trucking industry benefits. Recommendations regarding the regulation of wide-base truck tires are presented
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 24 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)
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
