  1. 1. Understanding Individuals' Learning and Decision Processes in a Changing Environment by Using Panel Data

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nursitihazlin Ahmad Termida; Yusak Susilo; Joel Franklin; Kiron Chatterjee; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Behavioural responses; seasons; panel data; travel diary; activity-travel pattern; theory of planned behaviour; space-time constraint; changing environment; tram; Stockholm; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : When a new transport service is introduced, people have to learn and familiarize themselves with the new service before they decide to adopt it. These processes are developed over time, thus produce dynamics in individuals’ behavioural responses towards the service. This affects the demand of the new service, thus affect revenues. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanistic-Empirical Modelling of Flexible Pavement Performance Verifications Using APT Measurements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Abubeker Worake Ahmed; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Hervè Di Benedetto; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flexible Pavement; Pavement Performance Models; Multilayer Elastic Theory; Linear Viscoelasticity; Rutting; Accelerated Pavement Testing; Heavy Vehicle Simulator; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Mechanistic-Empirical  (M-E)  pavement  design  procedures  are  composed  of  a  reliable  response model to estimate the state of stress in the pavement and distress models in order to predict the different types of pavement distresses due to the prevailing traffic and environmental conditions. One of the main objectives of this study was to develop a response model based on multilayer elastic  theory   (MLET)  with  improved  computational  performance  by   optimizing  the   time consuming parts of the MLET processes.

  3. 3. Policy Analysis for Different Types of Decision-Making Situations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Matts Andersson; Svante Mandell; Karin Brundell-Freij; Jonas Eliasson; Lars Hultkrantz; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; transaction cost; transition cost; misalignment; parking policy; strategic interaction; spillover; resource flow; reference forecast; kilometer tax; minimum parking requirements; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : This thesis seeks to contribute to decision support for policy makers in the transport sector. In order to frame the papers and to relate them to the broad field of “policy analysis”, I have structured the papers around a simple framework with three decision levels: responsibility, policy gap, and policy measure.

  4. 4. Explaining Trends in Car Use

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Jonas Eliasson; Oded Cats; Patricia Mokhtarian; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car use; peak car; VMT; VKT; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Many western countries have seen a plateau and subsequent decline in car travel during the early 21st century. What has generated particular interest and debate is the claim that the development cannot only be explained by changes in traditional explanatory factors such as GDP, fuel prices and land-use.

  5. 5. Peak Car in Sweden?

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Margareta Friman; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : It has long been well-known that economic variables such as GDP and fuel price as well as socio-demographic characteristics and spatial distribution are key factors in explaining car use trends. However, due to the recently observed plateau of total car travel in many high income countries, it has been argued that other factors, such as changes in preferences, attitudes and life-styles, have become more important drivers of car use.
