Model Predictive Control is applied to control and coordinate large-scale urban traffic networks. However, due to the large scale or the nonlinear, non-convex nature of the on-line optimization problems solved, the MPC controllers become real-time infeasible in practice, even though the problem is solvable in theory. In this thesis, we mainly...

During daily operations, relief agencies such as police, fire brigade and medical services manage information in accordance with their respective processes and organization structure. When disaster strikes, the ad-hoc combinations of such hierarchy based information systems fail to assure high information quality (IQ) and system quality (SQ) for...

Railway dispatchers are in charge of rescheduling trains during operations in order to limit propagation of disturbances occurring in real-time. To help the dispatchers in such task, an advanced decision support system, ROMA (Railway traffic Optimization by Means of Alternative graphs), has been recently implemented to optimize railway traffic...

The goal of this project was two-fold: firstly, to add to the theoretical knowledge about the impact of complex media combinations for distributed team coordination, and secondly, to increase the practical knowledge for organizations and designers on how to design and implement complex technological solutions for the support of distributed teams...

For highly interdependent yet location-specific tasks, distributed teams need to closely coordinate activities and processes. This field study in the upstream oil and gas industry focused on challenges in the coordination of highly interdependent tasks if teams work remotely on an ongoing basis. Based on 78 semi-structured interviews and...

One-way wave equations conveniently describe wave propagation in media with discontinuous and/or rapid variations in one direction, but with smooth and slow variations in the complementary transverse directions. In the past, reciprocity theorems have been developed in terms of one-way wave fields. The boundaries of the integration volumes and...

Crisis response efforts often require coordinating a previously unknown adhocracy of agencies under time pressure. While current technologies that support coordination are successful for well-defined static process descriptions, they may fall short in the face of more complex and unpredictable scenarios, such as a crisis or emergency. Using...

Multi-level optimization and multi-disciplinary optimization are areas of research that are concerned with developing efficient analysis and optimization techniques for complex systems that are made up of coupled elements (components). Within the field of multilevel optimization and multi-disciplinary optimization a large number of techniques...

Physical particle packing is becoming a hot topic in concrete technology as more and more types of granular materials are used in concrete either for ecological or for engineering purposes. Although various analytical methods have been developed for optimum mixture design, comprehensive information on particle packing properties is still missing...

The steadily increasing numbers and lengths of traffic jams on freeways have led to the application of Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) measures all over the world. Ramp metering control has proven to be one of the most efficient means to reduce freeway congestion. Currently, it is expected that integrated and coordinated application of DTM...

The aim of this dissertation was to study the little examined, yet important issue of leadership for distributed teams. Distributed teams are defined as: “teams of which members are geographically distributed and are therefore working predominantly via mediated communication means on an interdependent task and in realizing a joint goal” (adapted...

Complex systems, such as those encountered in aerospace engineering, can typically be considered as a hierarchy of individual coupled elements. This hierarchy is reflected in the analysis techniques that are used to analyze the physcial characteristics of the system. Consequently, a hierarchy of coupled models is to be used, accounting for...

This paper presents a crisis response simulation model architecture combining a discrete-event simulation (DES) environment for a crisis scenario with an agent-based model of the response organization. In multi-agent systems (MAS) as a computational organization, agents are modeled and implemented separately from the environmental model. We...

Although various scholars have researched issues regarding disaster management, few have studied the sharing and coordinating of information during disasters. Not much empirical data is available in this field and there is sparse insight into the factors that may impede or facilitate information sharing and coordination among stakeholders. In...

Multi-agency disaster management requires collaboration among geographically distributed public and private organizations to enable a rapid and effective response to an unexpected event. Many disaster management systems often lack the capability to cope with the complexity and uncertainty. In this introduction to the special issues on advances...

We consider a multi-agent planning problem as a set of activities that has to be planned by several autonomous agents. In general, due to the possible dependencies between the agents’ activities or interactions during execution of those activities, allowing agents to plan individually may lead to a very inefficient or even infeasible solution to...

Bacteria and archaea import molybdenum and tungsten from the environment in the form of the oxyanions molybdate (MoO4 2?) and tungstate (WO4 2?). These substrates are captured by an external, high-affinity binding protein, and delivered to ATP binding cassette transporters, which move them across the cell membrane. We have recently reported a...

Joining up remains a high priority on the e-government agenda and requires extensive transformation. Stage models are predictable patterns which exist in the growth of organizations and unfold as discrete time periods that result in discontinuity and can help e-government development towards joined-up government. Although stage models may be...

Parallel coordinate plots (PCPs) are commonly used in information visualization to provide insight into multi-variate data. These plots help to spot correlations between variables. PCPs have been successfully applied to unstructured datasets up to a few millions of points. In this paper, we present techniques to enhance the usability of PCPs for...

Traffic controllers monitor railway traffic sequencing train movements and setting routes with the aim of ensuring smooth train behaviour and limiting as much as existing delays. Due to the strict time limit available for computing a new timetable during operations, which so far is rather infeasible by using existing tools, railway traffic...
