Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Analyze enter data for highway or motorway design. Propose optimal highway or motorway parameters. Design interchanges of highways and motorways. Design traffic signalling and elements of telematic systems. Assess quality traffic level on highways and motorways. Assess design elements of highways and motorways from safeness viewpoint.

Summary

Lectures and practices of object are centred on choice questions of highway and motorway designing. Attention is aimed namely on solution of flyover junctions on highway and motorway net, on capacity evaluation, and to ensure road safety. Students make the acquaintance of registering method of highway and motorway net by the help of GIS applications, with using of orientation road signaling and traffic telematic. It is presented software which is used at road designing, that is currently on the institute.
