Affiliated with the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) "mission is to promote innovation and progress in transportation by stimulating and conducting research, facilitating the dissemination of information, and encouraging the implementation of research results." Drawing on contributions from thousands of engineers and transportation researchers, these specially selected Millennium Papers are intended give an up-to-date representation of the kind of research currently conducted at the TRB (which is also responsible for the TRIS Database discussed in the January 21, 2000 Scout Report
). The numerous papers supplied here (full-text, .pdf) may be selected by title, author, or committee. Examples of a few titles include "Asphalt Technology," "Engineering Geology," and "Transportation in the New Millennium." This site holds an interesting and varied collection of papers for engineers and transportation researchers.
