U.S. and Texas international trade and transportation

U.S. and Texas international trade and transportation

Date: July 2011
Creator: Anazia, Larry K.
Description: "This report examines various aspects of international trade, transportation, and foreign practices implemented to facilitate and fund transport-related infrastructure. The report is composed of six chapters. The first chapter provides an overview of the U.S. international trade outlook. The second chapter describes the roles played by air cargo transport, ports and ocean carriers, railroads, and the motor carrier industry in U.S. international trade. The third and fourth chapters focus on Texas-specific international trade and modal gateways. The fifth chapter reviews various transport funding mechanisms, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications, and forms of public-private partnerships adopted in various foreign countries. The final chapter describes the expansion of the Panama Canal and its likely Texas impacts."

Quantitative characterization of microstructure of asphalt mixtures

Quantitative characterization of microstructure of asphalt mixtures

Date: October 2010
Creator: Badgekar, Swapneel; Bhasin, Amit & Izadi, Anoosha
Description: "The main objective of this study was to quantitatively characterize the three dimensional micro-structure of the asphalt binder withing the fine aggregate matrix of an asphalt mixture and compare the influence of binder content, coarse aggregate gradation, and fine aggregate gradation on this micro-structure."

Potential connected vehicle applications to enhance mobility, safety, and environmental security

Potential connected vehicle applications to enhance mobility, safety, and environmental security

Date: February 2012
Creator: Balke, Kevin N.
Description: "Researchers first conducted a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art connected-vehicle research and technologies. Once researchers had a thorough understanding of the technology, they focused on selecting and developing the near-term practical applications that use connected vehicle technology. The research team then sought expert opinions from the Texas Transportation Institute working group during two brainstorming sessions, which produced two lists of potential applications and prioritized the applications based on deployment feasibility. In particular, a total of five applications were selected for development of the full concept of operations, including two in safety, two in mobility, and one in environmental security. These applications address various problems, including wrong-way driving and unprotected-grade-crossing crashes (safety): work-zone merge efficiency and safety, and freeway speed harmonization (mobility): and slippery pavement-related crashes (environmental security)."

Fracture properties and fatigue cracking resistance of asphalt binders

Fracture properties and fatigue cracking resistance of asphalt binders

Date: March 2012
Creator: Bhasin, Amit.
Description: "The main objective of this study was to evaluate the inherent fatigue cracking resistance of asphalt binders in the form of a matrix with rigid particle inclusions. The underlying rational for this approach was to subject the binders to a state of stress that is similar to the one in a full asphalt mixture."

The potential for improving rail international intermodal services in Texas and the Southwest region of the United States

The potential for improving rail international intermodal services in Texas and the Southwest region of the United States

Date: June 2011
Creator: Blaze, James R.
Description: "The report covers a period of great significance for railroading in the U.S as it contains a number of milestones now shaping the future performance of the industry. The specific subject is improving inter-modal service so that it can support state and regional highway planning, now facing severe financial cut-backs as revenue sources become fully committed to bond servicing, user taxes, loose purchasing power and fuel consumption begins to fall."

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

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."

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."

International air cargo operations and gateways: their emerging importance to the state of Texas

International air cargo operations and gateways: their emerging importance to the state of Texas

Date: July 2011
Creator: Cho, Hee Deok & Boske, Leigh B.
Description: "This report examines the potential of Texas-based airports, especially Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport and the Houston Airport System, to emerge as international gateways for global trade in general and trans-Pacific trade in particular. The period covered is 2001 to 2006."
