Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis pdf free download by Fred L. Mannering, Scott S. Washburn.
The best-selling Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis, 5e provides the depth of coverage necessary to solve the highway-related problems that are most likely to be encountered in engineering practice. The focus on highway transportation is appropriate in light of the dominance of the highway mode in the U.S. and available employment opportunities. Instructors can be confident their students are learning the fundamentals needed to undertake upper-level transportation courses, enter transportation employment with a basic knowledge of highway and traffic engineering, and answer transportation-related questions on the Fundamentals of Civil Engineering and Professional Engineering exams.The new 5th edition is updated with the most recent Highway Capacity Manual and AASHTO Green book, new homework problems, and the text has been streamlined and enhanced pedagogically with descriptive example names and homework problems organized by text section.
This edition of the Mannering’s Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis continues to offer a concise approach that covers all the necessary fundamental concepts. New features in this edition include updates and more consistency with the latest edition of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM); the inclusion of sample FE exam questions, call-out of common mistakes; and added coverage on a qualitative description of the mechanistic approach.
The text is simple to read with plenty of illustrations to explain the concepts. The example problems are quite helpful and can be used as a guide to begin solving the End-of-Chapter problems. One thing that would make the text more useful would be solutions to the odd (or even) problems. Dr. Washburn provides these to the class which helps to assure you are on the right track.
