Civil Engineering 鏉ユ簮涓浜.涓夊垎鍦拌鍧.
PHD招收84人,普通的civil engineering,下面有专门的transportation engineering研究项目,
也可以先杀进去graduate program,然后再进去PHD program        . 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
Ph.D.. 鍥磋鎴戜滑@1point 3 acres
A Ph.D. is offered in the Civil Engineering program only. The comprehensive Ph.D. program combines independent research with coursework for those wishing to attain the highest possible degree and contribute to new knowledge in their field. Students typically enter the Ph.D. program after completing a M.S. degree. The average time to completion is 3 to 4 years of full-time study following the M.S. degree.

M.S. degree
The M.S. degree involves a combination of coursework and a research or design project. The M.S. degree provides preparation for students either wishing to pursue a career in industry or to continue studies towards a doctorate. There are three versions of the M.S. degree:
Plan A, which involves independent research and completion of a thesis..鐣欏璁哄潧-涓浜-涓夊垎鍦
Plan B, which is typically more design-oriented and requires completion of one or more projects.
Plan C is a coursework-only program.
. 涓浜-涓夊垎-鍦帮紝鐙鍙戝竷. more info on
The M.S. Plan A and B degrees typically takes one-and-a-half to two years to complete on a full-time basis, and three to four years on a part-time basis. Plan C takes one year to complete on a full-time basis and two years going to school part-time.
Funding is often available for full-time students pursuing a Plan A degree, while Plan B students typically go to school part-time and are funded by external sources, such as their employer. Plan C students are usually unfunded. 鏉ユ簮涓浜.涓夊垎鍦拌鍧.
Students may apply for the BCE/MS program within their last two semesters of undergraduate studies. The benefit of this program is in the tuition used for part of your MS classes. Once admitted, you will be able to register for graduate level classes at the cost of undergraduate tuition. Graduate classes may not be used as electives for your undergraduate degree. Both degrees must be completed in their entirety. Students only receive two semesters of a graduate level tuition waiver. If you have not completed your undergraduate degree within the two semesters, you will start paying tuition at the graduate level. You should notify the Graduate Secretary once you have completed your undergraduate degree. For questions contact the Graduate Studies Secretary.

The graduate program in transportation engineering at the University of Minnesota is an interdisciplinary field that includes both transportation systems and pavement mechanics and materials:. From 1point 3acres bbs

PhD Program Requirements in Transportation Engineering

1. Completion of eight courses beyond the student’s MS program requirements. These courses must be determined by the student in consultation with and subject to the approval of the student’s advisor.
2. Successful completion of a PhD Qualifying Examination. The objective of this exam is to determine the student's suitability to advance to candidacy for PhD study in Transportation. This exam is administered in three parts: (1) a one-day written examination covering transportation systems engineering fundamentals and methodological basics; (2) a two-day written examination covering the
student’s areas of specialization in Transportation; and (3) an oral examination.
2.1 The fundamentals examination is a one day written examination that is usually administered in a classroom, on a closed-book basis, unless otherwise specified in advance of the exam. The specific format may change from year to year, though the content includes the following subjects:. Waral 鍗氬鏈夋洿澶氭枃绔,
Fundamentals of transportation systems engineering, including basic concepts of transportation demand, system performance and supply, and demand-performance interaction in transportation markets; activity systems analysis for passenger and freight transportation; and elements of transportation economics, evaluation and decision-making.
Methodological foundations, including applied engineering mathematics (advanced calculus and linear algebra), mathematical programming formulation and basic solution principles of transportation optimization problems; elementary network analysis and algorithms; probability models and application; applied statistical analysis techniques (hypothesis testing, estimation, linear regression).
2.2. The second part is a two-day written exam in the student’s area of specialization. This exam is intended to provide an opportunity for more meaningful problems, some of which may be open-ended, requiring more thinking and knowledge of the field. The student selects two topics from the following on which to be examined:
Transportation Planning and Policy
Traffic Operations and Control.
Travel Demand Analysis
Transportation Operations Research
Public Transportation Systems. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
Air Transportation Systems
Freight Transportation and Logis. 鐗涗汉浜戦泦,涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
The student needs to declare the two areas prior to taking the examination. In some cases, areas not included in the above list may also be selected, subject to approval by the Transportation Faculty. The students will receive open ended research questions related to the two topics they select.
The written exam is administered only twice a year: in January and in late May. The dates will be announced by the Transportation Faculty at least two months prior to the exam. The exam is normally taken after the student’s third semester in the PhD program, or two semesters after completion of the MS degree for continuing MS students. Exceptions to these rules may be granted only in the following cases:
a) Students whose MS degree is in a field other than Transportation Engineering.
b) Students whose native language is not English and who are in a US University for the first time.
c) Students who for extenuating personal circumstances believe they are not sufficiently well prepared to pass the exam, and formally request permission to wait an additional semester. Such requests must be approved by
both the student's advisor and the Transportation graduate advisor, and will be granted only in exceptional circumstances.
This determination is made by the Transportation Faculty as a group.
The following decisions can be reached as a result of this meeting:
Possible outcomes of written exam
The student passes the written exam and proceeds to the oral exam.
The student is allowed to take the oral, with specific recommendations.
The student fails the written but is allowed to take the oral, after which a more complete recommendation can be made.
The student fails the written and is not allowed to proceed to the oral; the student is allowed to retake the written at the next opportunity.
The student fails the written exam and is not allowed to proceed to the oral; the student shall not be allowed to continue in the program.
The Transportation Faculty reserves the right to waive the oral exam in exceptional cases. 鏉ユ簮涓浜.涓夊垎鍦拌鍧.
In addition, the Transportation Faculty will determine the composition of the oral examination committees for the candidates.. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
2.3. The third portion of the exam is an oral examination, which will be administered by a committee of a minimum of three Transportation faculty members (but may include at most one faculty member from related areas, subject to approval by the Transportation Faculty). The oral examination should take place within about 60 days after the written exam has been taken. The oral exam should be moderated by a faculty member other than the student's supervisor.
The results and recommendations of the oral examination committee should be made as soon as possible to the Transportation Faculty, who will meet after all oral examinations have been administered to consider the recommendations of the committees and take final action in this regard.
The following actions are possible:
Final Outcome of Overall Exam
Pass; advance to candidacy and proceed with doctoral program.
Pass with qualifications to the student's program of work; advance to candidacy and proceed with program.
No pass, but only partial re-examination (oral only, written only, portion of written only) required.
No pass, but complete re-examination permitted.
No pass, no re-examination; the student is not allowed to continue in the doctoral program..1point3acres缃
3. Successful defense of a research proposal. After the qualifying exam is passed, the student will form a PhD dissertation committee in consultation with his/her research supervisor. This committee must consist of a minimum of 5 graduate faculty members, including at least one “external” member who will serve as the Dean’s Representative. The “external” member must be from the University of Maryland at College Park but not from the Engineering School. A dissertation research proposal must be prepared, presented to, and approved by this committee.

A Real-Time Decision-Support System for Freeway Management and Control
Traffic incidents are believed to cause about 60% of the congestion delay in the United States. Accordingly, a number of U.S. cities maintain Traffic Operations Centers (TOCs) for incident detection and response. However, TOC operators are currently loaded with many low-level tasks in incident management. This process could potentially be automated by an intelligent system. This paper presents such a system called freeway real-time expert-system demonstration (FRED). FRED is designed to provide decision support for TOC operators in a simulated intelligent vehicle-highway system operating environment. Based on traffic information from detectors on freeways and from an incident report database, FRED is able to detect and verify multiple incidents that occur on a freeway network, and give advice to TOC operators regarding incident response strategies. FRED is designed in such a way that new developments in the area of incident management can be easily incorporated into the existing structure.

Measuring the impact of efficient household travel decisions on potential travel time savings and accessibility gains.鏈枃鍘熷垱鑷1point3acres璁哄潧
Using the conceptual framework of time-space geography, this paper incorporates both spatio-temporal constraints and household interaction effects into a meaningful measure of the potential of a household to interact with the built environment. Within this context, personal accessibility is described as a measure of the potential ability of individuals within a household not only to reach activity opportunities, but to do so with sufficient time available for participation in those activities, subject to the spatio-temporal constraints imposed by their daily obligations and transportation supply environment. The incorporation of activity-based concepts in the measurement of accessibility as a product of travel time savings not only explicitly acknowledges a temporal dimension in assessing the potential for spatial interaction but also expands the applicability of accessibility consideration to such real-world policy options as the promotion of ride-sharing and trip chaining behaviors. An empirical application of the model system provides an indication of the potential of activity-based modeling approaches to assess the bounds on achievable improvements in accessibility and travel time based on daily household activity patterns. It also provides an assessment of roles for trip chaining and ride-sharing as potentially effective methods to facilitate transportation policy objectives.

SPIVC: A SmartPhone-based Inter-Vehicle Communication System
Inter-vehicle communications (IVC) could potentially improve safety, mobility, and fuel efficiency of a transportation system. However, traditional decentralized approaches based on Dedicated Short Range Communications could take a long time to reach a meaningful market penetration rate. In this
study, we attempt to take advantage of ubiquitous smartphones and develop an IVC system based on smartphones, called SPIVC. In this system, smartphones on vehicles communicate with a central server and share traffic information with each other. Field tests are carried out on both WiFi and 3G  networks to determine the accuracy of GPS devices and communication delays between vehicles. A communication model is developed to explain communication delays. It is found that location errors are about 4 meters after warm-up, and communication delays are in the order of seconds and  depend on the frequency of location updates in GPS devices. The SPIVC system, which can be centralized or decentralized, holds great promises for an array of multimodal transportation applications that are not very sensitive to GPS accuracy and communication delay.

Reverse-engineered land use patterns to minimize congestion
A neighborhood land use pattern designed to accommodate the most frequently taken nonwork trips within an acceptable distance from home was developed. Instead of starting from a specified set of land uses and studying the travel characteristics, mixed land use patterns that fit the observed trip-making behavior of people were formulated. The result is called a reverse-engineered neighborhood, or REM The PEN was tested against a Euclidean development that had separated land uses. Results show a substantial reduction in nonwoik trip lengths (in terms of both travel time and distance) in the REN compared with the Euclidean development. The efficiency of the REN is the result of having more trip destination choices available to residents at acceptable distances. The procedures in the analysis are described and demonstrated, the results of the analysis are presented, and directions for further study are suggested..鐣欏璁哄潧-涓浜-涓夊垎鍦

Modeling the day-to-day traffic evolution process after an unexpected network disruption
Although various approaches have been proposed for modeling day-to-day traffic flow evolution, none of them, to the best of our knowledge, have been validated for disrupted networks due to the lack of empirical observations. By carefully studying the driving behavioral changes after the collapse of I-35W Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we found that most of the existing day-to-day traffic assignment models would not be suitable for modeling the traffic evolution under network disruption, because they assume that drivers' travel cost perception depends solely on their experiences from previous days. When a significant network change occurs unexpectedly, travelers' past experience on a traffic network may not be entirely useful because the unexpected network change could disturb the traffic greatly. To remedy this, in this paper, we propose a prediction-correction model to describe the traffic equilibration process. A "predicted" flow pattern is constructed inside the model to accommodate the imperfect perception of congestion that is gradually corrected by actual travel experiences. We also prove rigorously that, under mild assumptions, the proposed prediction-correction process has the user equilibrium flow as a globally attractive point. The proposed model is calibrated and validated with the field data collected after the collapse of I-35W Bridge. This study bridges the gap between theoretical modeling and practical applications of day-to-day traffic equilibration approaches and furthers the understanding of traffic equilibration process after network disruption.

The traffic and behavioral effects of the I-35W Mississippi River bridge collapse
On August 1, 2007, the collapse of the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis abruptly interrupted the usual route of about 140,000 daily vehicle trips, which substantially disturbed regular traffic flow patterns on the network. It took several weeks for the network to re-equilibrate, during which period travelers continued to learn and adjust their travel decisions. A good understanding of this process is crucial for traffic management and the design of mitigation schemes. Data from loop-detectors, bus ridership statistics, and a survey are analyzed and compared, revealing the evolving traffic reactions to the bridge collapse and how individual choices could help to explain such dynamics. Findings on short-term traffic dynamics and behavioral reactions to this major network disruption have important implications for traffic management in response to future scenarios.

Shortest path problem considering on-time arrival probability
This paper studies the problem of finding a priori shortest paths to guarantee a given likelihood of arriving on-time in a stochastic network. Such "reliable" paths help travelers better plan their trips to prepare for the risk of running late in the face of stochastic travel times. Optimal solutions to the problem can be obtained from local-reliable paths, which are a set of non-dominated paths under first-order stochastic dominance. We show that Bellman's principle of optimality can be applied to construct local-reliable paths. Acyclicity of local-reliable paths is established and used for proving finite convergence of solution procedures. The connection between the a priori path problem and the corresponding adaptive routing problem is also revealed. A label-correcting algorithm is proposed and its complexity is analyzed. A pseudo-polynomial approximation is proposed based on extreme-dominance. An extension that allows travel time distribution functions to vary over time is also discussed. We show that the time-dependent problem is decomposable with respect to arrival times and therefore can be solved as easily as its static counterpart. Numerical results are provided using typical transportation networks.

A local synchronization control scheme for congested interchange areas in a freeway corridor
Congestion that initiates at closely spaced highway junctions and intersections, particularly freeway interchange areas, may spread and severely degrade the operational efficiency of the whole network if not handled in a timely and proper manner. A local synchronization traffic control scheme is proposed to manage queues at those critical locations through coordination of neighboring intersection traffic signals and freeway onramp meters. By reducing the amount of traffic feeding into and increasing the amount of traffic discharging from heavily queued sections, the scheme can prevent a queue from evolving into gridlock and thus improve overall system performance. With the help of a network kinematic wave traffic flow model, the local synchronization scheme is implemented and tested on a computer for two sample networks, one small synthetic corridor network and one large, real corridor network. The numerical results indicate that this control scheme can improve the overall operational efficiency in both corridors considerably, with as much as 50% travel time savings. This control scheme appears to perform best under incident conditions and, somewhat surprisingly, compares favorably with a more complex global optimal control scheme.

Investing for reliability and security in transportation networks
Alternative transportation investment policies can lead to very different network forms in the future. The desirability of a transportation network should be assessed not only by its economic efficiency but also by its reliability and security, because the cost of an incidental capacity loss in a road network can be massive. This research concerns how investment rules shape the hierarchical structure of roads and affect network fragility to natural disasters, congestion, and accidents and vulnerability to targeted attacks. A microscopic network growth model predicts the equilibrium road networks under two alternative policy scenarios: investment based on benefit-cost analysis and investment based on bottleneck removal. A set of Monte Carlo simulation runs, in which a certain percentage of links was removed according to the type of network degradation analyzed, was carried out to evaluate the equilibrium road networks. It was found that a hierarchy existed in road networks for reasons such as economic efficiency but that an overly hierarchical structure had serious reliability problems. Throughout the equilibrating or evolution process, the grid network studied under benefit-cost analysis had better efficiency performance, as well as error and attack tolerance. The paper demonstrates that reliability and security considerations can be integrated into the planning of transportation systems.

A structured flexible transit system for low demand areas
Public transit structure is traditionally designed to contain fixed bus routes and predetermined bus stations. This paper presents an alternative flexible-route transit system, in which each bus is allowed to travel across a predetermined area to serve passengers, while these bus service areas collectively form a hybrid "grand" structure that resembles hub-and-spoke and grid networks. We analyze the agency and user cost components of this proposed system in idealized square cities and seek the optimum network layout, service area of each bus, and bus headway, to minimize the total system cost. We compare the performance of the proposed transit system with those of comparable systems (e.g., fixed-route transit network and taxi service), and show how each system is advantageous under certain passenger demand levels. It is found out that under low-to-moderate demand levels, the proposed flexible-route system tends to have the lowest system cost.. from:

Measurement and estimation of traffic oscillation properties
The paper proposes a frequency spectrum analysis approach to improve measurements of traffic oscillation properties (e.g., periodicity. magnitude) from field data. The approach builds on standard signal processing techniques to effectively distinguish useful oscillation information from noise and nonstationary traffic trends. Compared with conventional time-domain methods, the proposed methodology systematically provides a range of information on oscillation properties. This paper also shows how to estimate oscillations experienced by drivers using detector data. Applications to real-world data from two sites show that the dominant oscillation period remains relatively invariant at each site when an oscillation propagates. Although the average oscillation periods displayed in detector data significantly vary across sites. the range of oscillations experienced by drivers are found to be more consistent.

A Heuristic Approach for Selecting Highway Investment Alternatives
A heuristic approach is developed for systemwide highway project selection. It can assess changes in total project benefits using different project implementation options under budget uncertainty and identify the best option to achieve maximized total benefits. The proposed approach consists of a stochastic model formulated as the zero/one integer doubly constrained multidimensional knapsack problem and an efficient heuristic solution algorithm developed using the Lagrange relaxation technique. A method is also introduced to improve the upper bound for the objective function by simultaneously changing multiple Lagrange multipliers. The approach is applied in a computational study to obtain a comprehensive highway investment plan for a State-maintained highway system in the United States.

Highway Project Level Life-Cycle Benefit/Cost Analysis under Certainty, Risk, and Uncertainty: Methodology with Case Study
One of the key steps in the highway investment decision-making process is to conduct project evaluation. The existing project level life-cycle cost analysis approaches for estimating project benefits maintain limited capacity of probabilistic risk assessments of input factors such as highway agency costs, traffic growth rates, and discount rates. However, they do not explicitly address cases where those factors are under uncertainty with no definable probability distributions. This paper introduces an uncertainty-based methodology for highway project level life-cycle benefit/cost analysis that handles certainty, risk, and uncertainty inherited with input factors for the computation. A case study is conducted to assess impacts of risk and uncertainty considerations on estimating project benefits and on network-level project selection. First, data on system preservation and expansion, usage, and candidate projects for state highway programming are used to compute project benefits using deterministic, risk-based, and uncertainty-based analysis approaches, respectively. Then, the three sets of estimated project benefits are implemented in a stochastic optimization model for project selection. Significant differences are revealed with and without uncertainty considerations.

Buses as a traffic probe - Demonstration project. from:
The congestion probe feature of the Orange County Transportation Authority (California) bus probe project was evaluated by comparing automobile and bus trajectories and examining alternative congestion detection methods. The focus was city streets on which delays occur at signalized intersections and bus delays at bus stops. The analysis revealed that when automobiles have long delays, buses traveling nearby on the same route are also likely to be delayed. The reverse situation, however, is not always true, because buses frequently wait for extended periods when they run ahead of schedule. Any useful bus probe algorithm needs to distinguish between actual congestion and a stopping delay. Although the transit probe was designed to measure congestion on roadway segments, a more useful approach would be to measure congestion approaching major intersections, where delays are likely to occur. Moreover, because delays randomly fluctuate according to a vehicle's arrival time relative to the signal cycle, the most sensible approach is to set off a "congestion alarm" when a vehicle is delayed by more than one cycle at an intersection. A congestion alarm would indicate oversaturation and delay well above normal.. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
 Performance and design of mobility allowance shuttle transit services: Bounds on the maximum longitudinal velocity
We develop bounds on the maximum longitudinal velocity to evaluate the performance and help the design of mobility allowance shuttle transit (MAST) services. MAST is a new concept in transportation that merges the flexibility of demand responsive transit (DRT) systems with the low-cost operability of fixed-route bus systems. A MAST system allows buses to deviate from the fixed path so that customers within the service area may be picked up or dropped off at their desired locations. However, the main purpose of these services should still be to transport customers along a primary direction. The velocity along this direction should remain above a minimum threshold value to maintain the service attractive to customers. We use continuous approximations to compute lower and upper bounds. The resulting narrow gap between them under realistic operating conditions allows us to evaluate the service in terms of velocity and capacity versus demand. The results show that a two-vehicle system, with selected widths of the service area of 0.5 miles and 1 mile, is able to serve, respectively, a demand of at least 10 and 7 customers per longitudinal mile of the service area while maintaining a reasonable forward progression velocity of about 10 miles/hour. The relationships obtained can be helpful in the design of MAST systems to set the main parameters of the service, such as slack time and headway.

Internalizing emission externality on road networks
This paper addresses issues relevant to internalizing traffic emission externality on road networks with fixed travel demands. In addition to marginal social cost pricing (MSC) congestion pricing schemes are considered that yield a traffic flow distribution with minimum total travel time as first-best. We give a counterexample showing that MSC and other first-best congestion pricing schemes do not necessarily lead to less traffic emissions. Without using any subsidy, we indicate that there always exists a charging scheme that induces a traffic flow distribution with minimum emissions. We also provide a bound on the percent reduction in traffic emissions achievable by any charging scheme, and then offer methods for computing charges in a manner that allows decision makers to trade-off between two conflicting objectives, alleviating congestion versus reducing traffic emissions.

Robust improvement schemes for road networks under demand uncertainty
This paper is concerned with development of improvement schemes for road networks under future travel demand Uncertainty. Three optimization models, sensitivity-based, scenario-based and min-max, are proposed for determining robust optimal improvement schemes that make system performance insensitive to realizations of uncertain demands or allow the system to perform better against the worst-case demand scenario. Numerical examples and simulation tests are presented to demonstrate and validate the proposed models.

Estimating investment requirement for maintaining and improving highway systems
This paper presents an integrated and robust approach for estimating the investment necessary to maintain or improve the future levels of service and pavement conditions of facilities in a highway network. The approach is based on robust optimization and assumes that future travel demands and facility conditions are uncertain but confined to an ellipsoidal uncertainty region and traffic flows on the underlying network are in user equilibrium. The problem is formulated as a mathematical program with equilibrium constraints and solved via a cutting plane algorithm. Numerical results from the Sioux Falls network suggest that the approach can potentially address realistic networks.
