What’s new in the 7th Edition of HCM (2022)?
This webinar is developed for transportation professionals who want to understand the major changes in the methods published in the 7th Edition (2022) of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). Upcoming sessions: Wednesday, May 11, 12p to 1:30p ET; Tuesday, July 12, 2022, 12p to 1:30p ET; Tuesday, August 23, 3p to 4:30p ET.
This webinar is developed for transportation professionals who want to understand the major changes in the methods published in the 7th Edition (2022) of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM).
Experienced instructors who were directly involved in developing or peer-reviewing the new methods will provide a comprehensive summary of the major changes in the new methods, highlighting their applications, required inputs, and expected outputs.
- Methods for forecasting the effects of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) on the capacity of freeways, signalized intersections, and roundabouts
- A completely updated two-lane highway analysis method
- A new Network Analysis method that allows the analysis of multiple facilities, as well as the analysis of queue spillback effects from one facility to another (e.g., from urban streets to freeways)
- A new pedestrian level of service measure for uncontrolled pedestrian crossings that are sensitive to the type(s) of safety countermeasures provided
- New signalized intersection pedestrian delay methods for two-stage crossings, two-leg crossings, closed pedestrian crossings, exclusive pedestrian phases, and more
- Analytical evaluation methods for urban street active transportation and demand management (ATDM) measures
Program Learning Objectives
After completing this course, attendees will:
- Be familiar with the methodological changes in the HCM 7th Edition
- Understand the applications of the new methods for real-world use cases
- Stay up to date with new features provided by the HCM and HCS
PDHs provided: 1.5
Dr. Behzad Aghdashi has over ten years of professional experience focusing on research in transportation engineering and traffic operations training. His areas of expertise include traffic operations on freeways and surface streets, simulation analysis, software development, and mathematical optimization. Through several research projects, he developed methods for the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) to evaluate the operational conditions of freeway facilities. He has delivered numerous training and workshops related to the HCM/HCS material for academia as well as the professional society. Presently, Dr. Aghdashi serves as a member of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) standing committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service that oversees the content of HCM. He is currently serving as the director of McTrans Center.
Dr. Fabio Sasahara is the Outreach and Training Lead at McTrans Center at the University of Florida, having taught several training sessions on HCM and HCS courses. He has extensive experience in applying and developing new HCM methods. At McTrans Center, he leads training programs on Highway Capacity Analysis and workshops on the use of HCS. He is also actively involved with the Highway Capacity and Quality of Service Committee at TRB, where he currently serves as the User Liaison Lead.
