The papers in this five-volume proceedings were presented at the Second International Conference on Transportation Engineering (ICTE 2009), held at Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu, China, from July 25 to 27, 2009. China has embarked on the construction of an expansive high-speed rail network that will not only revolutionize passenger transportation throughout China, but will influence global changes in rapid and long distance commuter and freight transportation. The goal of this proceedings is to analyze new technologies in planning, design, construction, operation, and management, which will make this new high-speed transportation, and many other new forms of transportation, possible all over the world. These 740 peer-reviewed papers cover all forms of transportation, rail, highway, waterway, and air, and include topics such as: transportation planning and system optimization, ITS theory and applications, traffic control and information technology, transportation and socioeconomic development, transportation security, environmental protection, and sustainable development.
This book will be valuable to transportation engineers, managers, and anyone involved with planning and managing transit systems. RANKING: Low.
