You are invited to participate in a web conference to introduce the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) 2013 Release, which supports implementation of Highway Safety Manual (HSM) Part C Predictive Methods. The focus of the web conference will be on new crash prediction capabilities for freeway ramps/interchanges (including ramps, C-D roads and ramp terminals). Web Conference Details:

Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) 2013 Release
Thursday, October 24, 2013
Start time: 2:00 pm (EDT)
End time: 3:30 pm (EDT)

General Information -

The Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) 2013 Release (version 9.0.0; September 30, 2013) is now available for free at http://www.ihsdm.org. The 2013 Public Release contains a Beta version of crash prediction capabilities for freeway ramps, collector-distributor (C-D) roads and ramp terminals, based on draft Highway Safety Manual (HSM) materials developed under National Cooperative Highway Research Project 17-45.

IHSDM - a suite of software analysis tools for evaluating safety and operational effects of geometric design decisions - includes six evaluation modules: Crash Prediction, Policy Review, Design Consistency, Intersection Review, Traffic Analysis and Driver/Vehicle. The Crash Prediction Module (CPM) serves as a faithful implementation of HSM Part C (Predictive Methods) for rural two-lane highways (HSM Chapter 10), rural multi-lane highways (HSM Chapter 11), urban/suburban arterials (HSM Chapter 12), freeways (HSM Draft Chapter 18) and ramps (HSM Draft Chapter 19). The IHSDM Administration Tool includes a CPM Calibration Utility, which is intended to assist agencies in implementing the calibration procedures described in the Appendix to HSM Part C.
