Book Description

The new Garber and Hoel’s best-selling textbook Traffic and Highway Engineering 4th edition (in PDF) focuses on giving college students insight into all facets of traffic and highway engineering. Engineering students generally come to this course with little understanding or knowledge of the importance of transportation; much less of the extensive career opportunities within the field. Transportation is an extremely broad field; and courses must either cover all transportation modes or focus on specifics. While many topics can be covered with a survey approach; this often lacks sufficient depth and students leave the course without a full understanding of any of the fields.

This ebook’s 4th edition focuses exclusively on traffic and highway engineering beginning with a discussion of the pivotal role transportation plays in our society; including employment opportunities; historical impact; and the impact of transportation on our daily lives. This approach gives college students a sense of what the field is about as well as an opportunity to consider some of its challenges. Later chapters focus on specific issues facing transportation engineers. The textbook uses pedagogical tools such as diagrams and tables; reference material; worked problems; and realistic examples to demonstrate how the material is applied.
