This report, summary volume of a nine-volume series, describes the STAR methodology for assessing the multiple impacts on a region of various short-haul (50 to 500 miles) transportation systems, both air and ground. Developed by RAND for the Department of Transportation (DOT), the methodology systematically estimates and compares about 30 different impacts: (1) service impacts — travel times......

The second volume in a series of reports describing the methodology and results of a joint research venture between RAND and the Netherlands Rijkswaterstaat.The POLANO project was founded to help the Dutch government analyze the different alternatives (open, closed, and storm-surge barrier cases) for protecting the Oosterschelde region from North Sea floods. Volume II describes the methodology dev......

This paper identifies a set of 16 "important hard problems" (IHPs) related to the performance of a policy analysis study whose solutions would be considered of great value to researchers and practitioners.The IHPs are divided into three categories: those relating to (1) specific steps in the policy analysis process, (2) the overall policymaking process, and (3) the decision paradigm. This paper wa......

This project sought to evaluate strategies for controlling oxidant (smog) in Los Angeles and to investigate their sensitivity to assumptions. Promising strategies for fixed sources, vehicle retrofit and inspection/maintenance, and transportation management were identified and compared.(Transportation management strategies include bus-system improvements, carpooling incentives, and gasoline surtaxe......

This study examines the benefits and costs of incorporating a motion system in the C-17 flight training simulator, and it suggests a standard framework for assessing simulator fidelity requirements in general, and motion cueing alternatives in particular. Using a framework detailed in this report, the research assesses three simulator alternatives: a system having no motion, a system using hydraul......

This document provides technical support for R-3276. Appendixes describe (1) experiments to determine the value of motion in training simulators; (2) aircraft features that will influence the motion of the C-17; (3) possible effects on motion cues of the C-17's stability and control augmentation system; (4) the fidelity of different simulator motion cueing alternatives; (5) a suggested methodology......
