Nicholas J. Garber, Lester A. Hoel
Cengage Learning; 4th edition
The new and best-selling edition of Garber and Hoel’s textbook Traffic and Highway Engineering (available in PDF format) is geared toward providing students in higher education with an understanding of all aspects of traffic and highway engineering. Students of engineering typically enter this class with a little understanding or awareness of the significance of transportation, let alone the numerous professional prospects available within this sector. The field of transportation is exceedingly wide; therefore, classes must either cover all types of transportation or concentrate on particular aspects of the industry. Although a survey technique can be used to cover a wide variety of topics, it frequently does not provide adequate depth, and as a result, students typically leave the class without having a complete understanding of any of the fields.
The topic of traffic and highway engineering is the sole focus of the fourth edition of this e-book, which begins with a discussion of the pivotal role that transportation plays in our society, including employment opportunities, historical impact, and the impact of transportation on our daily lives. College students are provided with a feel of what the discipline is about as well as the opportunity to evaluate some of the issues that it faces thanks to this approach. In later chapters, the focus shifts to specific challenges that transportation engineers must overcome. The textbook illustrates how the subject is put into practice by utilizing instructional techniques such as diagrams and tables, reference material, worked problems, and real-world examples.
