July 2012 Research Digest

The July 2012 issue of the Research Digest is now available for download. This month’s digest provides abstracts for 30 of the most recent publications from the Southwest Region University Transportation Center (SWUTC).  The research projects represented here cover a wide range of topics.


The theme for the SWUTC is Transportation Solutions to Enhance Prosperity and the Quality of Life. To put this theme into operation, the Center’s scientists, engineers, and students focus their research expertise upon advancing four strategic thrusts for Region VI:  support economic growth and trade; enhance mobility, accessibility and efficiency; promote safety and safe environment; and development of the transportation workforce.  Producing usable results in such areas as improving transportation activities along the Texas-Mexico border; innovative transit service programs; dynamic travel demand management; development of new solutions to realize safe communities; and educational outreach programs to build a diverse transportation workforce for the 21st Century.

The reports mentioned in this Digest are available in print at the CTR Library as well as online (links are provided in the PDF); some products may be on CD-ROM.
