Kinematic joints are classified in lower pairs and higher pairs. Most multibody modelling techniques focus on lower pairs, because a complete classification in six types is available. Higher pairs are more diverse. In this article, higher pairs that can be exactly modelled by lower pairs are investigated. A complete classification of higher...

External and internal factors can cause disturbances or disruptions in daily train operations, leading to deviations from official timetables and passenger delays. As a result, efficient train timetable rescheduling (TTR) methods are necessary to restore disrupted train services. Although TTR has been a popular research topic in recent years,...

Railway transition zones (RTZs) are regions where abrupt track stiffness changes occur that may lead to dynamic amplifications and subsequent track deterioration. The design challenges for these zones arise due to variations in material properties in both the depth (trackbed layers composed of different materials) and longitudinal directions of...

With the strong backing and advocacy from the EU for railway transport, it is crucial to focus on innovative and efficient technologies to maintain service quality. In daily train operations, traffic uncertainties lead to perturbations, which may result in two types of track conflicts: disturbances and disruptions.<br/><br/>In the current...

Over the past few decades, the Netherlands has built numerous steel railway bridges to improve its infrastructure. The repeated loading from railway traffic makes steel bridges susceptible to fatigue damage. The stress ranges at fatigue-prone locations are generally higher in railway bridges than in road traffic bridges. Due to the limited space...

The railway transportation system is a critical infrastructure that supports the functionality of a country through ways like the transportation of people from point to point to carry out their daily activities i.e., work, study, and leisure; the timely transportation of freight within a country or cross-borders, contributing to economic...

There is increasingly more expensive maintenance that needs to be performed on the Dutch railway network. Good maintenance schedules reduce costs, minimise hindrance to passenger and freight travel, and follow restrictions imposed by available resources, legislation and other agreements. The railway maintainer has modelled this maintenance...

As the deployment of new railway technologies requires official approval from local authorities and governmental agencies, a well-specified strategy can foster investment decisions for technological developments and the overall system migration process. Therefore, it is crucial to guarantee that the proposed railway technologies can enhance...

Capacity and performance (evaluated through delay propagation) analysis methods have mostly focused on railway line track sections, but less attention has been given to nodes. Still, a few analytical methods for the capacity and performance assessment of the switch areas between station platform tracks and line tracks can be classified upon...

Urbanization, a desire for a reduction of CO2 and a need for a more efficient use of space are likely to greatly increase demand for rail travel in the coming decades. To improve railway capacity, extra infrastructure can be built, or existing track can be optimized. A silo analogy provides an interesting idea for an integral approach to network...

Blankenzee, Regino (author)
The planning of railway operations is a very complex process, in which timetables and other logistical plans need to be both reliable and robust to effectively prevent and cope with disturbances. However, research in the robustness of initial stabling plans, designed in an earlier planning phase, during the following planning phases, has been...

The railway timetable rescheduling problem is a challenging problem in both industry and academia. It is required to calculate a feasible and relatively good timetable within a limited time to reduce the negative impact of disturbances or disruptions. The railway timetable rescheduling problem is typically formulated as a mixed integer linear...

Long-term, large-scale empirical studies on the simultaneous development of transport infrastructure and the built environment are scarce. This thesis provides a future high-speed railway infrastructure implementation alternative based on the Dutch cultural landscape from Zwolle to Groningen. Our design goal is to better connect Amsterdam and...

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...

Railway transportation is crucial to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting increasing global demand for passenger and freight transport. To maintain a reliable, high-capacity railway infrastructure, regular and accurate maintenance is necessary. The recent development of a Rail-based Track<br/>Surveying System that can be mounted on any...

This architectural history thesis looks at the interrelationship between transport, land-use and architecture. A systematic comparison of the these three systems at key time periods contributed to the collective puzzle of answering the main research question; ‘How has the evolution of the transport system, with main focus on the railway system,...

To help maximize utilization of its existing infrastructure, the railway industry requires train service optimization models with headway constraints for state-of-the-art distance-to-go signalling systems. To this end, this paper introduces an approach for assessing train path feasibility in ETCS Level 2, Moving Block, and Virtual Coupling, that...

Public transport is important for society, it provides accessibility to opportunities. Accessibility is not distributed evenly. Some inhabitants are disadvantaged, which has negative impacts on society. The distribution of accessibility between inhabitants can be measured with transport equity. The PT network should be improved in order to...

<br/>The maintenance and repairs of transition zones pose significant challenges in the railways industry due to their accelerated degradation rates in comparison to free tracks. These zones, characterized by track property variations, amplify their response when a source travels along the tracks. The resulting amplifications in stress and...
