Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering. Combining topics that are essential in an introductory course with information that is of interest to those who want to know why certain things in transportation are the way they are, the book provides a strong emphasis of the relationship between the phases of a transportation project. The volume familiarizes readers with the standard terminology and resources involved in transportation engineering, provides realistic scenarios for readers to analyze and offers numerous examples designed to develop problem solving skills.

The volume examines transportation basics, traffic flow theory and analysis, highway design for performance, modeling transportation demand and supply, planning and evaluation for decision-making, design of highway for safety, design of intersections for safety and efficiency, pavement design, public mass transportation, air transportation and airports and environmental issues/emerging technologies. For those interested in transportation engineering.

The word "Fundamentals" appears in the title of this book, because topics that every student of transportation engineering should know are emphasized. Also included are some topics that are "nice-to-know" or just interesting. Interspersed in the textbook are items that are meant to reflect the enjoyment that can come from the study of transportation engineering. It is our hope that a student who has read this textbook will never look at a traffic signal, traffic sign, semitrailer truck, or airport runway the same way as before.
