Developing infrastructure for interconnecting transportation network and electric grid

Developing infrastructure for interconnecting transportation network and electric grid

Date: September 2011
Creator: Damnjanovic, Ivan & Kim, Seok
Description: "This report is primarily focused on the development of mathematical models that can be used to support decisions regarding a charging station location and installation problem. The major parts of developing the models included identification of the problem, development of mathematical models in the form of bi-level and stochastic programming problems, and development of a solution approach using a meta-heuristic method."

Development of warrants for installation of dual right-turn lanes at signalized intersections

Development of warrants for installation of dual right-turn lanes at signalized intersections

Date: April 2012
Creator: Chen, Xiaoming
Description: "Right-turn lanes provide space for the deceleration and storage of right-turn vehicle, and separate turning vehicles from through movements. Dual right-turn lanes are increasingly used at urban intersections primarily for two reason: (1) to accommodate high right-turn demands and avoid turn-pocket overflows, and/or (2) to prevent right-turn vehicles that exit from a nearby upstream freeway off-ramp (on the left of the roadway) from abruptly changing too many lanes toward the right-turn lane at intersection."

The economic efficiency of allowing longer combination vehicles in Texas

The economic efficiency of allowing longer combination vehicles in Texas

Date: August 2011
Creator: Walton, C. Michael.
Description: "This paper shows the economic efficiency of allowing longer combination vehicles in Texas. First, an overview of the truck size and weight policies is explained, with an emphasis on those that affect Texas. Next, LCV operations in other countries are described. Then, an LCV scenario for Texas is chosen, with specific routes and vehicle types. Operational costs for these vehicles are calculated on a cost per mile and cost per ton (or cubic yard) mile. The LCV scenario and the current truck base case are analyzed to find the number of truck trips, the number of mile, and the cost per mile for the chosen routes. These are then compared to estimate the change if LCVs were allowed in Texas."

Equity evaluation of vehicle miles traveled fees in Texas

Equity evaluation of vehicle miles traveled fees in Texas

Date: March 2012
Creator: Burris, Mark
Description: "This report used 2009 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS) Texas data to consider the equity impacts surrounding four vehicle miles traveled (VMT) scenarios. Results indicate that all of the VMT fee scenarios are essentially as equally vertically equitable as the current state gas tax system."

Evaluating the effect of street network connectivity on first/last mile transit performance

Evaluating the effect of street network connectivity on first/last mile transit performance

Date: November 2011
Creator: Chandra, Shailesh.
Description: "This study defines a novel connectivity indicator (CI) to predict transit performance by identifying the role that street network connectivity plays in influencing the service quality of demand responsive feeder transit services."

Evaluation of mobile source greenhouse gas emissions for assessment of traffic management strategies

Evaluation of mobile source greenhouse gas emissions for assessment of traffic management strategies

Date: August 2011
Creator: Yu, Lei & Shi, Qinyi
Description: "This research is intended to evaluate mobile source GHG emissions for traffic management strategies, in which a Portable Emission Measurement System (PEMS) is used to collect the vehicle's real-world emission and activity data, and Vehicle Specific Power (VSP) based modeling approach is used as the basis for emission estimation."

An evaluation of the effects of transit oriented development in a suburban environment

An evaluation of the effects of transit oriented development in a suburban environment

Date: October 2010
Creator: Lewis, Carol Abel
Description: "Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) refers to dense, pedestrian-friendly, livable communities that have good transit as a nucleus. While transit facilities are missing in most suburban towns and the residents are heavily dependent on their vehicles, it is wondered whether residents would take advantage if public facilities were available. This paper presents information about some vital aspects of TOD when viewed in suburban communities."

Examining the influence of tolls on commute departure and route choice behavior in the Chicago region

Examining the influence of tolls on commute departure and route choice behavior in the Chicago region

Date: August 2010
Creator: Paleti, Rajesh; Bhat, Chandra R. & Eluru, Naveen
Description: "The current study contributes toward understanding the influence of congestion pricing on commuter behavior by specifically examining what dimensions of commute travel behavior are affected as a response to congestion pricing."
