  1. 1. Safety Evaluation of Road Characteristics

    Author : Sarbaz Najib Othman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Accident data; FOT data; Overtaking maneuvers; Road safety; PC-Crash; Critical road parameters; Horizontal curves;

    Abstract : Accidents are rare and widely distributed on the road network, which poses a challenge for road safety improvement. Traditional methods alone, such as accident analyses and experimental studies, do not explain all accident causation factors. READ MORE

    Abstract : Luftburna partiklar (PM) är ett problem för människans hälsa, där flertalet samband mellan negativa hälsoeffekter finns mellan luftföroreningar finns, bland annat för respiratoriska sjukdomar, lungcancer och kardiovaskulära sjukdomar med flera. I länder där dubbdäck används, till exempel Sverige, Finland och Norge, och sandning av vägar och gator genomförs vintertid för att säkerställa god friktion kommer en betydande andel av partiklarna från vägslitage och nedkrossning av sand vilket bidrar till PM10.

  3. 3. Speed characteristics of urban streets based on driver behaviour studies and simulation

    Author : Karin F. M. Aronsson; Karl-Lennart Bång; Bengt Holmberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : Speed; Characteristics; Urban area; Road network; Street; Traffic; Driver; Side-friction element; Driving simulator; Simulation; Measurement; Behaviour; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The objective of the study was to gain in-depth knowledge of speed relationships for urban streets. The speed characteristics were examined using a number of methods for data collection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aggregating Case Studies of Vehicle Crashes by Means of Causation Charts: An Evaluation and Revision of the Driving Reliability and Error Analysis Method

    Author : Jesper Sandin; Per Lövsund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vehicle dynamics; driver error; young drivers; rollover; pre-crash; fatigue; collision avoidance; slipperiness; Accident; Cause; Classification; Characteristics; Driver; Error; 81 Road: Accidents; 81 Road: Accidents; 841 Road: Road user behaviour; 841 Road: Road user behaviour;

    Abstract : There is a need for increased knowledge about causes of motor-vehicle crashes and their prevention. Multidisciplinary in-depth case studies can provide detailed causation data that is otherwise unattainable. Such data might allow the formulation of hypotheses of causes and causal relationships for further study. READ MORE

  5. 5. Coagulation process characteristics and pollutant removal from urban runoff

    Author : Fredrik Nyström; Inga Herrmann; Annelie Hedström; Maria Viklander; Michael Cimbritz; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; stormwater; urban snowmelt; road runoff; coagulation flocculation sedimentation; coagulation characteristics; coagulation mechanism; treatment efficiency; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering; Centrumbildning - Centrum för dagvattenhantering DRIZZLE ; Centre - Centre for Stormwater Management DRIZZLE ;

    Abstract : Many different stormwater control measures (SCMs) can be implemented in order to mitigate issues with polluted stormwater flows into receiving water bodies.  The treatment function of  SCMs is commonly based on the removal of particles by sedimentation, thereby also removing pollutants associated with particles.
