IHSDM is a suite of software analysis tools for evaluating safety and operational effects of geometric design decisions. The new IHSDM 2014 Release (v. 10.0.0; September 2014) includes a Crash Prediction Module (CPM) that implements draft Highway Safety Manual (HSM) Part C Predictive Methods for freeway segments and interchanges (freeway ramps, collector-distributor roads, and ramp terminals); as well as 1st Ed. HSM methods for two-lane rural highways, multilane rural highways, and urban and suburban arterials. IHSDM also includes five other safety evaluation modules applicable to rural two-lane highways: Policy Review, Design Consistency, Intersection Review, Traffic Analysis, and Driver/Vehicle.

NHI delivers Web-conference Training to you!

The IHSDM course is a training that gives participants the opportunity to use the IHSDM software tools to evaluate and analyze highway designs.

The delivery format consists of 4 live Web Conference Trainings (WCT), which participants are required to attend. In between Web-conferences, participants must complete self-paced assignments.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the scope and uses for the IHSDM tool.
  • Input rural highway data to IHSDM.
  • Explain the purpose of each of the six IHSDM modules.
  • Demonstrate the workflow for each IHSDM module.
  • Interpret and apply data from IHSDM reports and graphs to make rural highways safer.


The Using IHSDM Course is designed for personnel working on highway design projects who will be directly interacting with the IHSDM software tools or applying the data generated by them. The IHSDM course benefits highway design project managers, planners, designers, safety engineers, and other personnel responsible for reviewing operations and safety on rural highways. Participants should have general familiarity with highway design elements and terminology.
