SUR 4201: Route Geometrics and Design Instructor : Dr. David W. Gibson 303 Reed Lab, P.O Box 110565 University of Florida, Gainesville FL 326110565 Ph 352 392 4995 Email: dgibs@ufl.edu COURSE SYLLABUS: here GETTING STARTED: Distance Education Exam PROCTOR'S Instructions Oncampus students will have the two midterms MT1 and MT2 and the final on campus 211CSE check eLearning for dates and times Additional lecture notes before MT1: here These are computations on cases similar to the HWs. Use for reference. Additional lecture notes after MT1: here NOTE: On all Excel HW submissions download and use the HW TEMPLATE. Keep all your data between columns A and O. Material outside of this will not be graded. Also, submit only one worksheet containing all work: calcs. , design discussion, and charts. If you cut/paste into the template, I must see your formulas, not just values. NOTE: If you develop your spreadsheet in your own worksheet start your computation work at about line 30 so when you copy/paste into the template at line 30 your "absolute" cell addresses will still work. No required course text, but optional course reference: Elementary Surveying, 12th Edition, Wolf and Ghilani, Prentiss Hall. (10th Edition or later)

Sources for AASHTO's "Green Book" – HW8 requires reference to the Green Book. AASHTO sells the Book and it is not on line. Here's how to get access: (1) I've placed a copy in 304 Reed Lab on reserve in the bookshelf just to the left inside the door. You may use the manual in 304 Reed and make copies of a few pages. or (2) Find the FDOT's "Florida Green Book FGB" on line in the Roadway Design office: http://www.dot.state.fl.us/rddesign/CS/CS.shtm This is condensed from AASHTO's book for use in Florida.
