Multimodal Transport Systems Multimodal transport network customers need to be directed during their travels. A travel support tool can be offered by a Multimodal Information System (MIS), which allows them to input their needs and provides them with the appropriate responses to improve their travel conditions. The goal of this book is to design and develop methodologies in order to realize a MIS tool which can ensure permanent multimodal information availability before and during travel, considering passengers' mobility. The authors propose methods and tools that help transport network customers to formulate their requests when they connect to their favorite information systems through PC, laptop, cell phone, Portable Digital Assistant (PDA), etc. The MIS must automatically identify the websites concerning the customer's services. These sites can, in fact, represent transport services, cultural services, tourist services, etc. The system should then be able to collect the necessary travel information from these sites in order to construct and propose the most convenient information according to the user's requests.

Transportation Infrastructure Engineering: A Multimodal Integration
March 2010
by Lester A. Hoel, Nicholas J. Garber, Dr. Adel Sadek ISBN: 0495667897 ISBN-13: 9780495667896
[ hide overview ]

Transportation Infrastructure Engineering: A Multimodal Integration Transportation Infrastructure Engineering: A Multimodal Integration, intended to serve as a resource for courses in transportation engineering, emphasizes transportation in an overall systems perspective. It can serve as a textbook for an introductory course or for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses. This book, unlike the widely used textbook, Traffic and Highway Engineering, serves a different purpose and is intended for a broader audience. Its objective is to provide an overview of transportation from a multi-modal viewpoint rather than emphasizing a particular mode in great detail. By placing emphasis on explaining the environment in which transportation operates, this book presents the "big picture" to assist students in understanding why transportation systems operate as they do and the role they play in a global society.

[ hide overview ]

Environmentally Conscious Transportation The fifth volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering, Environmentally Conscious Transportation provides a foundation for understanding and implementing methods for reducing the environmental impact of a wide range of transportation modes, from private automobiles (with a separate chapter on biofuels) to heavy trucks and buses to rail and public transportation systems to aircraft. Each chapter has been written by one or more experts who, based on their hands-on field experience, present relevant practical and analytic techniques for enhancing the integrity and reliability of transportation vehicles and infrastructure, as well as for measuring and limiting the pollution caused by transportation activities. Moreover, the book explains how to satisfy key business objectives, such as maximizing profits, while meeting environmental objectives. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).

Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering: A Multimodal Approach
March 2004
by Jon D. Fricker, Robert K. Whitford ISBN: 0130351245 ISBN-13: 9780130351241
[ hide overview ]

Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering: A Multimodal Approach Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering: A Multimodal Systems Approach is intended for the first course in Transportation Engineering. Combining topics that are essential in an introductory course with information that is of interest to those who want to know why certain things in transportation are the way they ~re, the text places a strong emphasis on the relationship between the phases of a transportation project. The text familiarizes students with the standard terminology and resources involved in transportation engineering, provides realistic scenarios for students to analyze. and offers numerous examples designed to develop problem-solving skills.

Features:
  • Non-automobile modes addressed extensively: Public transit, air transportation, and freight modes.
  • Purposeful, but flexible sequence of topics.
  • Ongoing case study of a single region called "Mythaca" which shows students the interconnections between many transportation issues.
  • Chapter opening scenarios: Each chapter begins with a scenario designed to orient students to a transportation problem that might confront a transportation engineer.
  • Scenarios, examples, and homework problems based on the extensive experience of the authors.
  • Traditional, standard transportation engineering combined with the needs of future transportation engineering.
  • Special Discussion Boxes: "Think About It" boxes provide students with highlighted topics and concepts to reinforce material.terial.

    [ hide overview ]

    Transport, Engineering and Architecture Transport, Engineering and Architecture is the second book in a series which explores the relationship between engineering and architecture. Divided into chapters devoted to themes such as planning transport systems, bridges, airport and aviation, this book helps today's engineers and architects meet the ongoing challenges of a fast moving and expanding business. Since the nineteenth century and the arrival of mass travel, the need for transport architecture has spawned some of the most impressive structures of recent times. As all forms of travel - air, rail, road and water - continue to expand, the ever-growing numbers of passengers and carriers moving around the world present new tests for architects and engineers. The book is produced in association with Arup, the largest firm of consulting engineers in the world. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).
