9780071800129: Sustainable Transportation Systems Engineering

Engineer and implement sustainable transportation solutions

Featuring in-depth coverage of passenger and freight transportation, this comprehensive resource discusses contemporary transportation systems and options for improving their sustainability. The book addresses vehicle and infrastructure design, economics, environmental concerns, energy security, and alternative energy sources and platforms. Worked-out examples, case studies, illustrations, equations, and end-of-chapter problems are also included in this practical guide.

Sustainable Transportation Systems Engineering covers:

  • Background on energy security and climate change
  • Systems analysis tools and techniques
  • Individual choices and transportation demand
  • Transportation systems and vehicle design
  • Physical design of transportation infrastructure
  • Congestion mitigation in urban passenger transportation
  • Role of intelligent transportation systems
  • Public transportation and multimodal solutions
  • Personal mobility and accessibility
  • Intercity passenger transportation
  • Freight transportation function and current trends
  • Freight modal and supply chain management approaches
  • Spatial and geographic aspects of freight transportation
  • Alternative fuels and platforms
  • Electricity and hydrogen as alternative fuels
  • Bioenergy resources and systems
  • Transportation security and planning for extreme weather events

PRAISE FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS ENGINEERING:

"This book addresses one of the great challenges of the 21st century--how to transform our resource-intensive passenger and freight transportation system into a set of low-carbon, economically efficient, and socially equitable set of services." -- Dan Sperling, Professor and Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, author of Two Billion Cars: Driving toward Sustainability

"...provides a rich tool kit for students of sustainable transportation, embracing a systems approach.The authors aptly blend engineering, economics, and environmental impact analysis approaches." -- Susan Shaheen, Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Co-Director, Transportation Sustainability Research Center, University of California, Berkeley

Product Description:

A single-volume engineering text on sustainable options for transportation

Sustainable Transportation Systems Engineering offers timely coverage of the role of transportation in sustainable development, the emergence of alternative fuels, and the relationship between electric vehicles and the smart grid. The book presents a systems approach to solving transportation problems and covers technology considerations, modeling of consumer choice, passenger transportation, and freight transportation. System-wide transportation issues, such as energy security, air quality, and emergency planning, are also discussed. This comprehensive resource features equations, worked-out examples, case studies, and end-of-chapter problems.

Coverage includes:

  • Providing access to amenities and goods movement without excessive congestion
  • Meeting transportation demand without excessive financial cost
  • Assuring access to a transportation energy supply for the long term
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other negative ecological impacts
  • Intramodal and intermodal transportation
  • Developing alternative fuels and power delivery platforms
  • Urban air quality
  • Transportation security
  • Hazardous transportation management
