The primary purpose of the Handbook is to instruct the user in submitting road design data to the computer center and in interpreting computer printouts. The Road Design System (RDS), when used properly as a tool by the designer, will enable him to study more alternate designs and thus improve his end product--a well-designed road. The RDS as explained in this Handbook consists of a series of interrelated computer programs with the purpose of performing the many tedious and repetitious mathematical calculations required in road design. It does not design roads, but performs mathematical calculations based on the data input. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
