Development and evaluation of traffic prediction systems
(Virginia Tech, 1994-04-12)
<p>Developing real-time traffic diversion strategies is a major issue of Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS), a component of Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS). Traffic diversion utilizes available capacity ...
Integrated urban transportation and land use modeling by application of system dynamics
(Virginia Tech, 1995-01-16)
The spatial allocation of land uses and vehicle route selection within an urban network are both dependent upon travel times between zones in an urban region. These location and accessibility components form the basis of ...
Stability of Levees and Floodwalls Supported by Deep-Mixed Shear Walls: Five Case Studies in the New Orleans Area
(Virginia Tech, 2011-09-08)
Increasing interest, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and other agencies, in using deep-mixing methods (DMM) to improve the stability of levees constructed on soft ground is driven by the need to reduce levee ...
Numerical simulation of an optimal channel cross-section
(Virginia Tech, 1991)
Interface Shear Strength in Lightweight Concrete Bridge Girders
(Virginia Tech, 2010-06-18)
Precast girders and cast-in-place decks are a typical type of concrete bridge construction. A key part of this type of construction is developing composite action between the girder and deck. In order to develop composite ...
Predictive equations for bolted connections
(Virginia Tech, 1990-02-14)
A FORTRAN computer program applying the ultimate strength/instantaneous center of rotation method was written to generate the eccentricity coefficients used for the study of this project. <p>For single line bolted connections, ...
Stereological Interpretation of Rock Fracture Traces on Borehole Walls and Other Cylindrical Surfaces
(Virginia Tech, 2005-09-16)
Fracture systems or networks always control the stability, deformability, fluid and gas storage capacity and permeability, and other mechanical and hydraulic behavior of rock masses. The characterization of fracture systems ...
