INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS
Problems in modern transportation systems will be introduced. The course will cover transportation planning and traffic engineering issues on highways and urban streets, while traffic simulation and animation will be applied to help students identify the problems. The concepts of highway (e.g., freeways, arterials and urban streets) operations and capacity, traffic flow theory, speed/volume relationships, and weaving sections will be introduced prior to computer simulation analysis.
