New railway bridges for high-speed trains are being built in a many countries around the world. In addition to the construction of new bridges, existing bridges are ageing. These two factors make the assessment of railway bridges essential. The bridges are designed considering certain predefined reliability criteria to account for the...

This research aimed to create knowledge and set guidelines for the (re)development of railway station areas regarding the required land use for access/egress facilities as a result of access/egress transportation developments. First, a literature review was conducted to gather knowledge for the foundation of this research. With the information,...

Defects that occur on train sets have to be repaired in a repair location and this has consequences on the transportation network. This paper proposes a decision support model that is developed for optimising the decisions of when and where to repair that defect train set. In practice, there is no clear overview of the effects of such decisions...

With the constant urge for progress that characterizes our society, there are bound to be some casualties. Disused and forgotten by the people not immediately involved with them, post-industrial areas are often left vacated and are quickly falling into ruin. Old factories, empty shopping malls, abandoned villages and creepy hospitals litter the...

There is a need to know flow capacities of common bottlenecks of cycle storages because an increasing number of large cycle storages are being designed. Flow capacity values are not available from literature nor is a suitable method to determine those values. This research contributes to filling these research gaps, by developing a method to...

Railway maintenance is currently planned according to a fixed schedule, mostly of one year. This is usually not optimal when considering the cost of maintenance, of possessions and of failure. However, an approach that minimizes the sum of these costs was not yet available. This paper presents a statistical analysis method and an optimization...

The extensive amount of knowledge possessed by an organization represents one of its most valuable resources. Nonetheless, it is not always easy to pinpoint, arrange and reuse such knowledge in an effective and productive manner. Moreover, in the last two decades companies have been increasingly using serious games and simulations for the most...

Amsterdam Sloterdijk currently can be best described as a desolate office-area next to a major multi-modal mobility hub. At the same time amsterdam at large is facing challenges it has never seen before. The city is getting over-crowded, housing prices have increased sharply, and the limits of it's mobility network are already reached....

With the arrival of the Eurocode, the calculations regarding shear resistance, have become increasingly conservative compared to former concrete standards. For example in Voorschriften Beton 1974 (VB 74), a former concrete standard, a shear resistance combination of concrete, stirrups and prestress was allowed. Whereas the Eurocode assumes the...

The relationship between the city and railway development is fascinating. In Europe, railway stations were originally placed at urban periphery. Step by step, as the urban dense core area expands outwards, the railway station areas were pulled in and now absorbed by the urban fabric. Because of large-scale and special facility form, Railway...

Wave barriers are a common mitigation measure when dealing with environmentally induced vibrations. These wave barriers generally consist of stiff vertical walls buried in the soil to impede waves on their path from the source to the receiver. The geometries of the wave barriers that are used in practice are very simple. More complex geometries...

In this thesis, a method to monitor the health condition of railway crossings based on vibration data recorded by the accelerometers installed on the crossing is proposed. Due to various types of trains and other exogenous factors, responses obtained from accelerometers vary, even when the crossing has the same state condition. As a consequence,...

Industrial railway systems can be found within companies where the production and processing of goods require large quantities to be transported. These underdeveloped systems are often privately owned and are characterized by short to cover distances, many locations, inefficient layout due to historical expansion and bidirectional driving. Local...

An essential component of railway infrastructures is track ballast. As railway track is used frequently by passing rolling stocks, its performance degrades over time. At certain degradation levels, maintenance interventions must be carried out to improve the track performance so to meet technical and safety regulations. In this way, the risk of...

Investment projects in railway infrastructure networks are needed to maintain a high condition of the network, maximize the capacity of the network, and to keep the risk low. Railway organizations are aiming to achieve these goals, but also want to minimize the costs of the investments. The desires of stakeholders in railway networks such as the...

The current 1.5kV railway traction power supply system is reaching its limits in the Netherlands and therefore, ProRail is investigating the replacement of this system by the 3kV railway traction power supply system. This study will investigate how effective the 3kV traction power supply system can increase the capacity of the rail...

NS is the largest train operating company on the Dutch railway network. With a growing demand in train movements, the railway infrastructure is subject to changes. These infrastructural mutations are a collaboration between NS, as Train Operating Company, and ProRail, as infrastructure manager. Various complexities arise due to the close...

In a busy railway network such as the Netherlands, more and more maintenance activities are needed to be performed. These planned activities often lead to an infeasible timetable since infrastructure is temporary unavailable for operations. A macroscopic network model can roughly adjust the timetable for a complete network, while a microscopic...

The history of Taiwan is closely attached to the establishment of transportation infrastructure. The thriving scene of urban Taiwan emerged in the 70s after the establishment of several national level infrastructure projects. They have become the backbone of both Taiwan's past economic glory as well the daily necessity of present society. As the...

The Amsterdam South station area is at the very beginning of a huge transformation. Since the station and highway, situated directly next to each other, cannot manage the amount of travellers and cars anymore, both have to expand. Unfortunately, the lack of space makes it impossible for both expansions at the same level. So a solution has to be...
