The present article aims to identify critical roads on a macroscopic road network by the road characteristics and traffic parameters on the operability of the whole network; such as length, distance from the centre, speed, number of lanes, and number of connectors. This can provide a useful tool to have more understanding of which road characteristics have a...

Superloads (SLs) are a class of vehicles that typically exceed both gross vehicle weight limits and axle load limits, in addition to occupying two or more lanes of traffic. In PA, SLs require special permits but their effect on pavement distresses have not been evaluated. In this study, lab and computational analyses were combined to quantify the effect of SLs...

The objectives of this research are to address the following questions:  1) How will new non-auto mobility options (electric bicycles and other no-/low-power vehicles) impact speed dynamics on non-auto facilities and interactions among non-auto travellers? How are the speeds of vehicles and the perceptions of comfort for non-auto travellers influenced by...

Little is known about how driving performance and attention change over time with increased automation. The current study assessed the effect of varying levels of vehicle automation on driver performance over time. Participants gained experience with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) across four sessions in the driving simulator. The specific driver...

Without adequate drainage, stormwater can accumulate on road surfaces creating safety hazards including vehicle hydroplaning, road spray, and obscured roadway markings. Therefore, it is essential for designers to have tools that accurately represent water accumulation, movement, and capture within the roadway environment so that criteria for allowable spread...
