The present study focuses on the application of finlet rails as a passive technique of flow control to mitigate trailing-edge noise. Finlet rails are small cylinders whose axes are aligned along the streamwise direction, transversally positioned with respect to the trailing edge. In the first part of this study, the effects of finlet geometry...

Wheel-rail high-frequency interaction is closely related to the formation of railway short-wave defects. Finite element (FE) method has been widely used to simulate wheel-rail dynamic systems, but its validity in modelling high-frequency interaction has not been fully demonstrated in three dimensions (3D). This work aims at comprehensively...

Short-haul flights, known for their high carbon intensity relative to distance, are increasingly challenged by high-speed rail (HSR), a viable and environmentally friendly alternative. This study develops a model adapting the “Transit Network Design and Frequency Setting Problem” to high-speed rail, focusing on optimizing existing networks...

This thesis describes the design of a 3rd order 1-bit delta-sigma modulator whose input-signal range (0 to 1.95V) exceeds its supply voltage (1.2V). By using a passive input stage and a single-OTA resonator, this beyond-the-rails modulator realizes a 3rd order loop filter with only two amplifiers instead of the usual three and thus achieves...

Following the European Green Deal, transport- related emissions must be reduced by 90% in 2050. While aviation contributes to a significant share of these emissions, the substitution of flights for rail travel is often considered to achieve a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gasses. Mostly, travelers consider this option when the full trip...

In the era of increasing global connectivity, Schiphol Airport aims to transform into a Multimodal Transport Hub (MTH) to meet the growing demand for seamless travel experiences. This shift from the traditional hub-and-spoke model to an MTH not only enhances passenger satisfaction but also positions Schiphol as a leader in the aviation industry...

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management set up the ERTMS Programme and commissioned ProRail to realize the rollout. In Dutch vernacular, ERTMS is often used, but the system that replaces the legacy dutch system is ETCS Level 2. This rollout of ETCS Level 2 in infrastructure is currently being done on 7 sections of track in...

High-speed rail (HSR) is gaining increasing attention due to its sustainability and transport capacity, aligning with ambitious European transport goals for 2030 and 2050. Despite its potential, the creation of a unified European HSR network faces challenges rooted in poor coordination and national interests. This study addresses the absence of...

in this study a backcasting analysis is performed to formulate interventions pathways that lead to the vision of making the train the main mode of passenger transportation within Europe in 2050. The vision is formulated based on goals of the European Union and the pathways are formulated based on input from experts gathered by conducting semi...

In recent decades, the relevance of the railway as a more sustainable alternative for (inter)national commuting has increased significantly. Moreover, contemporary railway stations are becoming not only important mobility hubs where national and local transportation systems are interlinked but also new city centres offering a variety of...

Promoting sustainable travel involves encouraging train travel as a preferred mode of transportation. However, train travel in the Netherlands faces challenges with delays and slow speeds, including the planned Lelyline. This report explores an innovative high-speed train viaduct inspired by Chinese rail construction techniques as an attractive...

Short-haul planes leaving Amsterdam Airport Schiphol are criticized and/or disliked by many groups, including society, the government, and Actieagenda trein en luchtvaart 2020 (Rijksoverheid, 2020). Due to public opinion and political pressure, the airport is challenged to improve its sustainability. Since the airport relies heavily on hub...

Short pitch corrugation is a quasi-periodic rail defect that induces a high level of noise and accelerates track degradation. This paper proposes a methodology to mitigate short pitch corrugation by rail constraint design, including four steps. In Step 1, corrugation is numerically reproduced by employing a three-dimensional (3D) finite...

The dynamics of a moving train are usually described by means of a motion model based on Newton's second law. This model uses as input track geometry data and train characteristics like mass, the parameters that model the running resistance, the maximum tractive effort and power, and the brake rates to be applied. It can reproduce and predict...

This paper presents an experimental study on the development mechanism of short pitch corrugation using an innovative downscale V-Track test rig. Rail corrugation is reproduced in the V-Track with two wavelengths of 6.4 mm and 8.9 mm. Based on the measured wheel-rail contact forces, track dynamic behaviors, and observations, the consistent...

The platform carrying capacity of urban rail transit stations is limited and overcrowding of the platform will lead to serious safety risks for passengers and trains. It is significant to collaborate on the optimization of passenger flow strategy and skip-stopping scheme to alleviate traffic pressure and ensure platform safety. This study...

Real-time timetable scheduling is an effective way to improve passenger satisfaction and to reduce operational costs in urban rail transit networks. In this paper, a novel passenger-oriented network model is developed for real-time timetable scheduling that can model time-dependent passenger origin-destination demands with consideration of a...
