Since its inception in 1968, the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute (PTI) has maintained a threefold mission of research, education, and service. In pursuit of this mission, the institute has aspired to conduct innovative and relevant research directed toward current and future transportation needs, to promote continuing education for transportation professionals, to provide significant interdisciplinary educational and research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and to disseminate research results within and outside the transportation field. PTI's research activities, educational efforts, and service projects are directed toward solving problems in five major transportation areas: construction engineering and management, pavements and materials, transportation operations, transportation structures, and vehicle systems and safety. The institute also addresses transportation issues through several affiliated centers and programs, including the Bus Testing and Research Center, the Center for Intelligent Transportation Systems, the Crash Safety Research Center, LTAP--The Pennsylvania Local Roads Program, the Mid-Atlantic Universities Transportation Center, and the Northeast Center of Excellence for Pavement Technology. Increased funding from federal, state, municipal, and industrial sources during fiscal year 1994-1995 placed PTI's active research contracts at more than $32 million and its total expenditures at more than $7 million. The contents of this PTI 1994-1995 Annual Report are organized as follows: Message from the Director, Dr. Bohdan T. Kulakowski; Overview; Executive Committee; Selected Research Projects; Affiliated Centers and Programs; Technology Transfer; Publications and Presentations; Appendix A - Contract Research Projects; Appendix B - PTI Research Associates; Appendix C - PTI Advisory Board; and Directory.
