TRANSPORTATION IN UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES

These papers were presented in one of the Work-Sessions at the Second International Symposium of Engineering held at 'Universidad Centroamericana Jose Simeon Canas' from the 19th to the 23rd of February 1979. The document describes problems in underdeveloped countries related to transportation; rapid urbanization, which leads to the development of high residential areas, and often bad-planned transportation systems. Energy expenditure in transportation is usually a high percentage of total Energy consumption; therefore, the necessity of evaluating transportation programs and planning transportation alternatives is of prime importance, especially because present trends indicate that such energy consumption is increasing.
