Highway engineering knowledge you can build on.
Given the continual and dramatic increase in vehicle ownership and travel, and the sheer number of people affected by our nation's highway system, there are few more important and far-reaching fields than highway engineering.
Rather than addressing the broad expanse of the transportation engineering field, Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis, Third Edition focuses primarily on highway and traffic engineering, providing the depth you need to solve real highway-related problems. Taking a concise, accessible, example-oriented approach, the authors bring clarity to the subject matter and present a large number of end-of-chapter problems, allowing you to master the concepts and apply them in professional practice.
This text provides a great balance between depth and breadth of coverage for an introductory transportation engineering course.
