THE STATUS OF ELECTRONIC COMPUTATION IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING

INITIAL APPLICATIONS OF ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS IN THE HIGHWAY FIELD WERE DEVELOPED ABOUT 1955. SINCE THEN THERE HAS BEEN A BROAD ACCEPTANCE OF THIS DEVICE BY HIGHWAY ENGINEERING ORGANIZATIONS AND RAPID PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN EXPANDING ITS USE. THIS PAPER REPORTS ON THE PROGRESS MADE DURING THIS PERIOD AND ON THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE USE OF ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING AND ADMINISTRATION, INCLUDING THE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS IN USE OR IN PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT AND PROBABLE FUTURE TRENDS. IT ALSO DISCUSSES ACTUAL AND INDICATED EFFECTS OF THE ADOPTION OF HIGH-SPEED DATA PROCESSING AND COMPUTATION ON STAFFING PATTERNS, ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE, AND ENGINEERING AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE. /AUTHOR/
