Description & Coverage
Description:

The rail-based transit system is a popular public transportation option, not just with members of the public but also with policy makers looking to install a form of convenient and rapid travel. Even for moving bulk freight long distances, a rail-based system is the most sustainable transportation system currently available.

The Handbook of Research on Emerging Innovations in Rail Transportation Engineering presents the latest research on next-generation public transportation infrastructures. Emphasizing a diverse set of topics related to rail-based transportation such as funding issues, policy design, traffic planning and forecasting, and engineering solutions, this comprehensive publication is an essential resource for transportation planners, engineers, policymakers, and graduate-level engineering students interested in uncovering research-based solutions, recommendations, and examples of modern rail transportation systems.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated Testing
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Public Transportation
  • Rail Funding and Financing
  • Railway Safety
  • Railway Signaling Systems
  • Sustainable Transportation
  • Traffic Management
  • Transportation Planning
Reviews and Testimonials

This work gathers international contributors in electrical engineering, urban planning, industrial engineering, and transportation engineering; many from India. With less emphasis on mathematics, the book is designed to be readable for policymakers. Material is grouped in sections on general issues, finance, safety, operations, and engineering. Some specific subjects considered include planning for transit systems in Indian cities, railway investment appraisal techniques, value capital urban rail financing, automated testing, intelligent transportation systems, traffic management, and ventilation in tunnels and underground stations. The book includes B&W graphs, diagrams, and process charts.
