HIGHWAY RAMP CONTROL. 1964-JUNE, 1980 (A BIBLIOGRAPHY WITH ABSTRACTS)

The bibliography contains citations of reports on ramp design, merging control, ramp metering, and ramp use. Studies are documented of freeway collector lanes, exits into city streets, traffic bottlenecks, express bus lanes, vehicle collisions, road curves, freeway entry control--all involving ramp engineering. Computerized simulations and freeway corridor models are presented, along with traffic models, ramp control strategies, optimization procedures, and studies of freeway traffic flow. A few cases in which accident incidence has been linked to faulty ramp design, thereby calling for improved vehicle monitoring has been included. (This updated bibliography contains 142 abstracts, 12 of which are new entries to the previous edition.)
