Xanthopoulos, Stavros (author)
Nowadays, urban areas are exposed to various challenges such as climate change, social inequalities, and congestion. Mobility hubs present the opportunity to reshape our cities and mitigate the previously mentioned problems by contributing to a more sustainable and equitable transport system. This thesis defines mobility hubs as places where...

Due to climate change, the sea temperature is rising. This temperature change has an effect on the phytoplankton population. Phytoplankton is responsible for more than 50 percent of the oxygen production on earth, and is therefore crucial for life on earth. In this report, the research question is: is the temperature increase of the water...

Travelers do not like transfers in their Public Transport journey; it gives a disutility. Minimizing this disutility is valuable to increase travelers' satisfaction. To be able to reduce this disutility, transfers have to be identified first. Multi-operator smart card datasets allow for the identification of transfers between different operators...

With the number of passenger cars increasing worldwide, shared modes are being introduced in addition to public transport and active modes to reduce private car usage. The concept of mobility hubs was introduced to improve the accessibility of the different available transport modes. At a mobility...

In this work a diffusion-driven inhibitor transport model is used to help in the design of inhibitor-loaded carriers for anticorrosive primers. The work focuses on inhibitor release at damaged locations of different dimensions exposed to electrolyte and is validated experimentally. The damage dimensions are first simulated to determine the...

In order to avoid the adverse effects of air pollution, efforts have been made to monitor when air pollution reaches dangerous levels. A Chemical Transport Model (CTM) can simulate trace gases and particles concentration in specific areas. These models are not entirely reliable, owing to incomplete knowledge about emissions and meteorological...

Automated vehicles (AVs) have been a dream for a long time. From science fiction in the 1930s to countless prototypes, extensive road testing, and first use cases at present, the technology has clearly come a long way. So too has the vision of practitioners and academics matured to recognise the various potential benefits (e.g., accessibility,...

The trolleybus traction grids, an effective electrification solution for urban transport, can become more sustainable and efficient through the direct integration of solar photovoltaic systems. Previous research shows different results for this application. The aim of this study is to identify a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and to...

This paper presents a new 2D water transport model considering capillary suction to predict the water content evolution in the concrete porosity. The basic formulations of the model are illustrated, and a switching algorithm is introduced to simulated wet-drying effects. Two specific absorption tests are studied to validate this model. The first...

Push-pull tests (PPTs) were evaluated with 1-D radially axisymmetric multi-component geochemical reactive transport modelling (RTM) to assess aquifer reactivity controlling groundwater quality. Nutrient fate and redox processes were investigated in an Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) system, in which oxic tile drainage water (TDW; nitrate ...

Container transport requires real-time control and a high degree of cooperation to alleviate disturbances and perform smoothly without unnecessary environmental impact and monetary losses. The involved operators are, however, often reluctant to cooperate as they fear loosing valuable information and autonomy, eventually leading their clients...

Freight transport systems are facing ever-growing demand and increasingly stringent requirements. Governments are pressured to develop new policies and fund new projects that drive forward the freight transport systems. We provide an overview of typical evaluation approaches used for freight transport policies and projects, from the public...

In this paper, we propose an efficient and practical implementation of the ensemble Kalman filter via shrinkage covariance matrix estimation. Our filter implementation combines information brought by an ensemble of model realizations, and that based on our prior knowledge about the dynamical system of interest. We perform the combination of...

The use of low air quality networks has been increasing in recent years to study urban pollution dynamics. Here we show the evaluation of the operational Aburrá Valley’s low-cost network against the official monitoring network. The results show that the PM<sub>2.5</sub> low-cost measurements are very close to those observed by the official...

Particulate matter (PM) is one of the most problematic pollutants in urban air. The effects of PM on human health, associated especially with PM of ≤2.5μm in diameter, include asthma, lung cancer and cardiovascular disease. Consequently, major urban centers commonly monitor PM2.5 as part of their air quality management strategies. The Chemical...

Utilizing coral aggregate concrete (CAC) for construction on remote islands can significantly reduce construction cost and period, CO<sub>2</sub> emission, and consumption of non-renewable energy. The durability of reinforced CAC structures is critically influenced by their resistance to chloride attack. In this study, a reactive transport...

Several studies show that logistics facilities have spread spatially from relatively concentrated clusters in the 1970s to geographically more decentralized patterns away from urban areas. The literature indicates that logistics costs are one of the major influences on changes in distribution structures, or locations and usage of logistics...

Automated vehicles (AV) are expected to change our future way of transportation and bring many positive effects, such as better road/vehicle safety, reduced environmental costs but also increased on-board productivity. The commonly adopted approach to capture the effect of increased on-board productivity is to reduce the ‘penalty’ associated...
