If you are studying for the NCEES P.E. exam you should order the 2000 version.
The fifth edition of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM2010) incorporates more than $5 million of funded research that has occurred since publication of the HCM2000. This latest edition will significantly update how engineers and planners assess the traffic and environmental effects of highway projects. The fifth edition is the first HCM to:
- Provide an integrated multimodal approach to the analysis and evaluation of urban streets from the points of view of automobile drivers, transit passengers, bicyclists, and pedestrians;
- Address the proper application of microsimulation analysis and the evaluation of those results;
- Discuss active traffic management in relation to both demand and capacity; and
- Provide specific tools and generalized service volume tables to assist planners in quickly sizing future facilities.
The HCM2010, composed of four volumes, includes Volume 1 - Concepts; Volume 2 - Uninterrupted Flow; Volume 3 - Interrupted Flow; and
Volume 4 - Applications Guide (electronic only). Volume 4 is an electronic-only volume that registered HCM users will be able to access online. Volume 4 includes supplemental chapters on methodological details and emerging issues; interpretations, clarifications, and corrections; comprehensive case studies; and a technical reference library.
HCM 2010 is produced in U.S. customary units only. There is no CD-ROM or other electronic versions of the contents of Volumes 1 through 3.
