## Traffic Engineering: Probability, Sampling, Normal Distribution and allied Notes

Traffic Engineering: Probability, Sampling, Normal Distribution and allied Notes! Traffic engineering deals extensively with data obtained from surveys and studies related to traffic, which are useful in the design and operation of highways. Statistical methods have proved to be a powerful tool in the analysis and interpretation of these data. Elementary concepts of statistics are considered here, with particular reference [...]

## Transportation Planning: Process and Top 5 stages of Transportation Planning

Transportation planning is a complex problem. Increased facilities will change the environment and land use patterns and result in increased trips invalidating the original criteria and projections used. Increased use of operations research and systems approach to transportation planning in recent times seeks to optimise the system performance for deriving maximum benefit from the facilities. The use of mathematical models [...]
