HIGHWAY METRICATION. VOLUME 1. TASKS 1,2,3,4 AND APERCU
The purpose of the study is to identify various problems which are likely to arise during highway metrication and to prepare a detailed plan for research aimed at solving conversion problems. Investigations reveal a need for an early selection of the metric units to be used, the vital importance of early metrication of specifications and standards, and the absolute necessity of coordination of metrication activities on the national level. This volume contains a discussion of pertinent information related to highway metrication obtained from literature searches, interviews, and correspondence. Problem areas are defined and a program for further research is presented.
