Infrastrutture Viarie Urbane e Metropolitane
Urban and metropolitan highway infrastructures Maurizio Bocci
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course deals with several aspects typical of urban road infrastructures providing analysis criteria for critical states, planning and management methods, theories and techniques of specific project solutions aimed at improving traffic and road safety in urban areas. CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course will give to students the background for acquiring analysis methods and techniques related to urban road infrastructures issues in order to identify, planning and put the most appropriate technical solution into practice. Theoretical and practical background will be acquired through classroom lectures.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The capability of planning, designing and analyzing through specific methodologies within the urban road infrastructures will allow students to improve own decision-making and judgment skills as well as learning abilities with the aim at improving the matching between the acquired background and the demands of the labor market.
Classification of urban road: throughway, district, local and service roads. Roadways, lanes, shoulders, sidewalks, lanes for public transportation. Passages, pedestrian crossings, passage ways for vehicles, service stations, cycle-paths.
Crossroads, road junction on different levels; directional, non-directional, semi-directional ramps. Cloverleaf interchange, partial cloverleaf interchange, collector/distributor road, diamond interchange, trumpet. Roundabouts.
Automated, synchronized and coordinated traffic-lights. Calculation of traffic-lights cycle.
Parking on one level and multi-levels. Fireproof standard specifications. Design methods.
Urban traffic planning: standard specification, design general criteria. Traffic flow survey, O/D investigations, parking supply and demand. Networks traffic management. Pedestrian areas and limited traffic zones.
Bus stations, tramways, subways, innovation systems with automatic driving, mechanized pedestrian paths.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The examination consists of an oral test about the topics provided in the course program.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
During the oral test, the student should demonstrate to have an overall knowledge of the subject. The exposition should be clear and include an appropriate technical terminology. The maximum mark is achieved when a brilliant exposition is associated with a deep knowledge of the subject.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Assignment of the final mark on a 30-point scale, with possible merit attribution.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
In order to pass the examination with the minimum mark, the student must have a proper knowledge of all the topics demanded. The maximum mark is achieved by means of a thorough analysis of the topic. The laude is assigned to the students which, through a brilliant exposition, show to have a deep knowledge of the topic.
