Compendium of Student Papers: 2013 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program

This report is a compilation of research papers written by students participating in the 2013 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program. The 10-week summer program, now in its 23nd 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 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) Validation of Computer Vision for Structural Vibration Studies; 2) Evaluating Driver Response to Prototype Traffic Control Devices at Access Points; 3) Evaluation of Apparent Capacities through Freeway Lane Closures; 4) Operational Effects of Chevrons on Horizontal Curves Using Speed and Energy Differentials and Speed Profiles; and 5) Preliminary Development of a Trip Generation Manual for Texas.
