Thesis (M.S.)—University of Nebraska—Lincoln, 1977. Department of Civil Engineering.
The 1970’s will go down in history as the decade in which the University of Nebraska – Civil Engineering Department expanded its academic interest to include the field of transportation. Railroad transportation and activities related to the instruction of planning, design and operation of railroads become a most important part of the transportation curriculum when viewed in the above context. Unfortunately, no modern comprehensive textbook exists for use in a rail transportation course.
The intent of this thesis is to provide a comprehensive source of data for use in the course of study in Railroad Transportation being developed by the University of Nebraska – Civil Engineering Department.
