HOME >> Journal Notice: Call for papers for the Special issue: Insight - Civil Engineering

The Introduction of the Special Issue

Among the different modes of transportation, road transportation is relevant to most of us in our daily lives. This special issue aims to prepare an overview of the most recent experiences and recommendations to improve the safety and operation levels of transportation systems for all users (drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and others).

Selected research topics within the scope of the special issue may include studies on Safety, Roadside Design, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV), Crash Analysis, Impact of Human Factors, Traffic Operation Analysis, Pavement, Pedestrians and Bicyclists, Road Design, Transportation Planning, Multi-Modal Transportation, and Traffic Calming.

The Lead Guest Editor

Amirarsalan Mehrara Molan

Amir M. Molan, PhD., is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Wyoming. He obtained his BS and MS degrees from Azad University in Tehran, Iran, and his doctoral degree from Wayne State University. To date, Amir has been first author and co-author of over 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles in civil engineering journals and conferences. One of his recent articles has been selected as the best paper of 2018 in the ASCE Journal of Transportation Engineering: Part A. His main research interest is on proposing new designs for improving the performance and extending the serviceability of existing interchanges and intersections. Amir has recently invented a new design called a super DDI (super diverging diamond interchange) as an alternative for failing diamond interchanges.
