Evaluation of Motorcyclists' and Bikers' Safety on Wet Pavement Markings
In this study, three different pavement marking material types were evaluated by using a British Pendulum Tester (BPT) in dry, wet, and icy conditions. The frictional properties were recorded as a British Pendulum Number (BPN). Two different rubber sliders on the BPN were used to compare different pavement marking users: a ...
Low-Cost Remote Weather Information System: Phase 1 and 2
Remote weather information systems (RWIS) are an important part of determining maintenance activities and scheduling. However, the cost of RWIS limits the number of systems that can be deployed. Because of the lack of power and the high power budget of commonly used systems, some locations are not suitable for RWIS even though ...
Enhancing the Resilience of Idaho's Transportation System to Natural Hazards and Climate Change
This research compiled information on past landslides, including date-referencing and geo-locating events; analyzed and mapped variables contributing to slide susceptibility; demonstrated the conditions of the future climate models that may increase landslide hazards; and designated the transportation routes most vulnerable ...
