Abstract : Research is directed towards improvement in procedures for the estimation of that portion of inland waterway transportation benefits which contribute to national income. The report is in three volumes. The first volume develops a conceptual framework which reflects interaction of supply and demand as they relate to the evaluation of transportation alternatives. A model for demand for transportation is developed, the application of modal split is introduced, and engineering and statistical cost functions are developed. (Author)
