Evaluation of portable instrument for load history study on bridges by John H Kennedy( Book )

State short line railroads and the rural economy by Michael W Babcock( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
The short line industry has experienced rapid growth since 1980 and likely will continue to grow at a rapid rate given the stated plans of Class I railroads to spinoff parts of their systems to short line operators in the 1990s. As a result, shipper groups and potential short line operators are likely to request 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 railroads as an industry is not assured
Evaluation of fly ash in cold in-place recycling by Stephen A Cross( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
The Kansas Department of Transportation has developed an innovative method of rehabilitating pavements of low volume roads utilizing cold in-place recycling of the asphalt and mixing type C fly ash with the recycled material. Field test sections indicate fly ash improves constructability and moisture sensitivity as well as utilizing a by-product that currently ends up in landfills. The same field test sections have shown increased cracking with increased fly ash contents and a drop in pavement modulus with time. Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) was mixed with 3, 7, 11 and 15% fly ash and the laboratory samples were evaluated for fatigue life, durability, freeze-thaw resistance and thermal cracking. The performance of RAP mixed with asphalt emulsion and asphalt emulsion plus hydrated lime was also evaluated

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
Assessment of traffic control practices with respect to older drivers by Eric Meyer( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
When signage on a rural highway in Kansas was upgraded, the State received some comments that begged the question of whether modern highly reflective sign sheeting materials could, in some circumstances, actually decrease the legibility of signage, particularly for older drivers. Older drivers tend to have poorer visual acuity, requiring larger signs to provide the same legibility as found in a younger population. However, older drivers also tend to be more sensitive to glare and slower to recover from glare blindness. This study was conducted to determine if highly reflective sheeting could cause a reduction in sign legibility due to veiling glare, especially in older drivers. The test was conducted using 60 drivers in an actual automobile and full scale signs and distances. The data collection was conducted in a test facility where external factors could be eliminated, isolating the variables of greatest interest. Older drivers as a whole were found to exhibit poorer performance in terms of visual acuity and response time, but no detrimental effects attributable to glare were observed
Storage effects at culverts by Bruce M McEnroe( Book )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
This report presents new methods for quickly estimating the effects of detention storage on the performance of existing culverts and the sizing of new culverts. These methods, which do not require hydrograph routing, are applicable to pipe and box culverts operating under inlet control with no overtopping of the roadway. Peak discharges can be computed by the Rational method, USGS regression equations or any other appropriate method. Water-surface areas at two or more stages are needed to define an approximate depth-area relationship
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%
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 25 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
Handbook of traffic control practices for low volume rural roads ( Book )
4 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
The main purpose of this Low Volume Rural Road (LVR) Handbook is to assist the local government officials in providing traffic control and guidance for persons driving on LVR. The suggested practices in the LVR Handbook are in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 2003 Edition (MUTCD 2003)and, in some cases, address more specifically the application of MUTCD 2003 to LVR. This handbook also includes background information on the characteristics of LVR
