From sight distance to freeway flow characteristics to signal coordination for arterials, this is the most comprehensive textbook I've seen on traffic engineering. The topics follow a very logical progression and many examples are given throughout. This book could serve as an excellent textbook for an undergraduate or first-year graduate traffic engineering class in addition to being a must have for practitioners. One way the book could be improved is by including a more thorough presentation of loop detectors, control cabinets, and how actuated signal timing plans actually play out from cycle to cycle, specifically with regards to actuated coordinated signals along arterials. Nonetheless, I still give the book a 5.
This book does a good job of detailing the necessary warrants for various traffic issues but when attempting the problems and reviewing their examples, you become extremely thrown off with all the mistakes in the numbers. I've scribbled my own edits everywhere.
I have had this book for about three months now, its been a good book but recently as I have gotten further into it I am finding more and more mistakes in it. I have had problems where i use a table in the book and it says to interpolate and you can't even get the values they get in the example. Overall they need to check the math in the book and update the references they use many of them have been updated and not recently either.
This book came but wasn't complete. It was missing all of the pages with the tables/formulas. Strangely enough, it had the exact same title, ISBN, and version/year as the books others had in class, but it was about 1/2 as thick. I guess it was printed wrong. Sent it back for a refund.
This book goes thru a variety of traffic engineering problems, assesing solutions and explaining in an simple way many concepts and technics used in the HCM (1994/97 updates).Very good for begginers.....
this is perfect for the pe it has 90% of the information you need and it explains the hcm and the green book in great detail. A++
I studied this book for my traffic class. I really like the language and the way authors present the challenges in traffic engineering and explain the standard solution approaches. It is unlike most transportation engineering manuals which are written to make you fall asleep (and think traffic engineering is not interesting).UPDATE- Several years later the references used in this book (Highway Capacity Manual, AASHTO Greenbook etc) are no longer current, this book is falling behind. I really hope authors update the book with the latest-and-greatest standards and specs so it can shine again!
This book is basically the holy grail for traffic and transportation engineers. Outside of the AASHTO green book, the MUTCD, and some other manuels, this book can take you far into the engineering world I love. A must-have for transportation and traffic engineering.
