Abstract

Transoft will present a one-hour session on roundabout design.

What You Will Learn:

  • History of roundabouts
  • Roundabout characteristics
  • Benefits of roundabouts
  • Challenges of roundabouts
  • Common principles and objectives for roundabout design
  • Case Studies
  • Introduction to roundabout design solutions
  • Software demonstration for roundabout design. You will be shown the right tools to design roundabouts smarter, more efficiently, and with fewer errors while giving you the ability to make better decisions regarding safety. The software produces initial geometry that is generated with your design criteria in mind, and provides real-time feedback regarding recommended dimensional and analytical ranges.
