The Highway capacity manual: a summary / prepared by Office of Traffic Operations, Federal Highway Administration. This book is Volume II of a series on the conceptual and research origins of the methodologies found in the Highway Capacity Manual. It focuses on the most complex points in a traffic system: signalized and unsignalized intersections, and the concepts and methodologies developed over . Since , the Highway Capacity Manual has been a standard used in theplanning, design, analysis, and operation of virtually any highway traffic facilityin the United States. It has also been widely used abroad, and has spurred thedevelopment of similar manuals in other twin concepts. Highway capacity manual Special report, National Research Council (U.S.).

Transportation Research Board.; JHK & Associates.;] -- This Circular presents what is expected to be the final text for portions (Chapters 3, 5, 7, and 10) of the Third Edition of the Highway Capacity Manual. It is presented in an effort to make new. Over the past two decades, highway engineers have used speedvolume curves contained in the Highway Capacity Manual as an input to computation of the user costs. ’ But, in the Transportation Research Board published a new version of the. highway capacity manual a rational and practical method for determining highway capacities is essential for sound economic and functional design and utilization of the highway transportation system. the ability to accommodate vehicular traffic is a primary consideration in the planning, design, and operation of streets and highways. As the Committee on Highway Capacity wrapped up its first big report, the Highway Research Board knew something special had happened. As the report neared completion, a private publisher approached the Board. The new manual had best seller written all over it. Photo Credit: Lee Rodegerdts, Kittelson & .
