Feng, Y. (author)
This dissertation is focused on using Virtual Reality to study pedestrian wayfinding behaviour in buildings during both normal and emergency situations, from simple scenarios to complex scenarios. In particular, various empirical datasets featuring pedestrian wayfinding and evacuation behaviour were collected using different VR technologies to...

Wierbos, M.J. (author)
This dissertation studies the dynamics of bicycle traffic flow. The research focuses on busy situations such as bicycle queues at intersections and congestion upstream of a bottleneck. The cycling movements are analyzed on the aggregated scale in terms of density, speed and flow. Furthermore, cyclists are included in a traffic flow model by...

Qu, W. (author)
Transport networks are operated under a pre-designed plan to carry out the trans- portation tasks. Perturbations can inevitably arise exogenously or endogenously, and cause disturbances to the transit of passengers or the delivery of freights. A transitional plan is needed to deal with the perturbations and accomplish the trans- port tasks. The...

Traffic congestion on motorways has become a common phenomenon across the world. Congestion on motorways is a major discomfort to road users and causes many problems such as reducing the capacity of the motorways, increasing travel times and fuel consumption leading to high economic and societal costs. Alleviating congestion and providing better...

Requirements on ships are rapidly increasing. In particular, safety and environmental impact are under increasing scrutiny. At the same time, cost and profitability remain as important as they have ever been. These increasingly stringent constraints are beginning to pose problems during the design process. For example, the energy efficiency...

A flexible riser is a multi-layered pipe device which enables deep-water production by connecting seabed facilities to floating vessels. To withstand huge hydro-static pressure, it is required to have strong collapse capacities. At present, the collapse capacity of a flexible riser is designed based on a "wet collapse'' concept, in which the...

As the title suggests, cyclists are the main topic of this dissertation<br/>and more specifically, their behaviour while they are ‘in motion’. The<br/>term ‘in motion’ is used in the title to represent microscopic operational<br/>cycling behaviour, which is the behaviour of cyclists, treated as individuals<br/>(microscopic level), while they are...

Walking is an essential form of human mobility. In policy making, however, pedestrians are largely neglected. This dissertation explores how the system for pedestrians works and what steps authorities can take to improve conditions for pedestrians, walking and sojourning in public space. It outlines an effective and fair approach by redefining...

Knowledge about the way how the bicycle is used for activity participation is still scarce. This thesis provides empirical insights into typical activity-travel behaviour of cyclists. A special focus is put on the spatial dimension of activity-travelling by bicycle and its determinants. The findings can be used to design more bicycle-friendly...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are on the horizon, and they are expected to deliver traffic safety and efficiency benefits to transportation systems. There are different automation levels for AVs based on the functionalities of the automation systems and their operating design domain (i.e., on which conditions these functionalities can be realized)....

Surface cracks are serious threats to the structural integrity of offshore metallic pipes. This dissertation proposes a protocol of composite reinforcement on surface cracked metallic pipes subjected to cyclic loads, aiming to decrease the crack growth rate and prolong the residual fatigue life. The main objective of this dissertation is to...

Dozens of variants for congestion charging have been studied and discussed in scientific and political circles in the search for an efficient policy to abate the negative effects of car use, these being congestion and emissions, in particular. Although congestion charging provides clear economic advantages and is technically possible, the actual...

Traffic congestion causes detrimental effects on economy and society in terms of travel time delay, increased vehicle collision risk and increased air pollution. To tackle that, new intelligent transportation systems are being developed. One of these emerging technologies comprise automated driving systems. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC),...

This thesis explores the potential of self-regulation in collective decision making to align interests and optimise joint performance. Demonstrated in the domain of road maintenance planning, this research contributes novel incentive mechanisms and algorithmic techniques to incite self-regulation and coordinate agent interactions, paired with a...

With the increasing volumes of containers in global trade, efficient global container transport planning becomes more and more important. To improve the competitiveness in global supply chains, stakeholders turn to collaborate with each other at vertical as well as horizontal level, namely synchromodal transportation. Synchromodality is the...

A new range of tailored, on-demand mobility alternatives are emerging worldwide; amongst these are pooled on-demand services, i.e., shared ride-hailing services such as UberPOOL or ViaVan. Simulation studies have shown the potential benefits of these services in urban areas, yet their ridership is still very limited. This thesis examines the...

For decades, Discrete Choice Models (DCMs) have been used to describe, understand and predict human choice behaviour in a wide variety of contexts including transportation, healthcare and marketing. The field of discrete choice modelling is firmly rooted in economic theory, and most DCMs are based on the assumption that decision-­makers, when...
