Compendium of Student Papers: 2014 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program

David Florence, Sam Jordan, Nicole L. Kelly and Kaitlynn Dione Simmons, Authors, and H. Gene Hawkins, Editor, August 2014

This report is a compendium of research papers written by students participating in the 2014 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program. The 10-week summer program, now in its 24th year, provides undergraduate students in civil engineering the opportunity to learn about transportation engineering through participating in sponsored transportation research projects. The program design allows students to interact directly with a Texas A&M University faculty member or Texas A&M Transportation Institute researcher in developing a research proposal, conducting valid research, and documenting the research results through oral presentations and research papers.

The papers in this compendium report on the following topics: 1) Using Psychology to Understand Managed Lane Use; 2) Performance Characterization of Different Asphalt Binders at High Temperature: Oklahoma Case Studies; 3) Rapid Rehabilitation of Energy Impacted Roads; and 4) Benefit-Cost Analysis of Horizontal Curve Traffic Control Treatments.

Keywords: Managed Lane; Asphalt Binders; Energy Impacted Roads; Horizontal Curve, Traffic Control, Treatments
