  1. 1. Complexity in transportation and logistics systems : A conceptual approach to modelling and analysis

    Author : Jonas Waidringer; Chalmers; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; management; measurement; logistics; modelling; complexity; transportation;

    Abstract : The basis for the thesis is to assess the usefulness of describing and analysing transportation and logistics systems as being complex systems. The reason and assumption being that in the future more integrated and sophisticated systems and solutions will be demanded. READ MORE

  2. 2. Foliated Transportation Networks - Evaluating feasibility and potential

    Author : Joakim Kalantari; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hybrid transportation systems; transportation network modeling; intelligent transportation systems.; transportation planning and control; transportation network simulation; transportation network optimization; Transportation networks; transportation network performance; mixed model transportation; transportation network efficiency;

    Abstract : Neither the critical role that transportation plays for economic activities nor its negative external effects can be denied. At the same time, the resources required to sustain and develop the transportation system to an adequate degree and at the required pace are limited. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the use of traffic flows for improved transportation systems : Mathematical modeling and applications

    Author : Henrik Fredriksson; Mattias Dahl; Johan Holmgren; Benny Lövström; Joakim Ekström; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mathematical modeling; Transportation systems; Link flows; Mathematics and applications; Matematik med tillämpningar;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the mathematical modeling of transportation systems for improved decision support and analysis of transportation-related problems. The main purpose of this thesis is to develop and evaluate models and methods that exploit link flows. READ MORE

  4. 4. Just-in-Time Arrival in Port Calls : Potential and Implementation

    Author : Abdalla Mubder; Anna Fredriksson; Joakim Kalantari; Niklas Arvidsson; Linda Styhre; Abd Alla Ali Mubder Mubder; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maritime transportation; Port call process; Just-in-Time arrival; Coordination and information sharing; Port community system;

    Abstract : There is an urgent need to reduce emissions from maritime transportation to meet environmental targets set by international organizations and governments. To reduce emissions from maritime transportation, technical, market-based, and operational measures can be used. READ MORE

  5. 5. An Ontology-Based Platform for Information Integration : Supporting Sustainable Smart Transportation Infrastructure

    Author : Wiebke Belitz-Hellwich; Nicole Kringos; Annika Gram; Romain Balieu; Vangelis Angelakis; KTH; []
