This essential multi-authored work reflects a new sustainable transportation planning paradigm. The authors draw on considerable teaching and researching experience to present an essential, ground-breaking and authoritative text. It explores the concepts of sustainable development and sustainable transportation, describes practical techniques for comprehensive evaluation, provides tools for multi-modal transport planning, and presents innovative mobility management solutions to transportation problems. Students of various disciplines, planners, policymakers and concerned citizens will find many of its provocative ideas and approaches of considerable value as they engage in the processes of understanding and changing transportation towards greater sustainability. This text reflects a fundamental change in transportation decision making. It focuses on accessibility rather than mobility, emphasizes the need to expand the range of options and impacts considered in analysis, and provides practical tools to determine the best solution to the transportation problems facing a community.

This book sets out the challenges that will soon threaten modern society's dependence on low-cost transport in light of the problems posed by oil supply and climate change. It proposes organizational and technical innovations that could ensure effective, secure movement of people and goods in ways that minimize environmental impacts and make the best use of renewable sources of energy. The authors conclude that transport in the first half of the 21st century will feature at least two revolutions. One will involve the use of electric drives rather than internal combustion engines. The other will involve powering these drives directly from the electric grid rather than from on-board fuel. The authors also address revolutions in marine transport and aviation and analyze the politics and business of transport and how these will undergo profound change in the decades ahead. This fresh look at the topic offers explanations, challenges the failures of governments and industry, and proposes strategies and actions that can move transport towards sustainability.

This book provides valuable insight and critical appraisal of key areas of intelligent transport systems (ITS) for land transport in Europe. ITS is becoming increasingly important as the means to improving the efficiency, safety and comfort of the transport of people and goods, while at the same time, helping to minimize environmental damage and the contribution of transport to global warming. The material draws on over four years of study by the ROSETTA project- part of the European Commission 5th Framework Program. For each of the 12 areas addressed, the book provides a vision for their application, identifies key issues yet to be addressed and the future opportunities that the timely application and advancement of ITS can bring.

The commercial operation of the bullet train in 1964 in Japan marked the beginning of a new era for high-speed railways. Because of the huge amount of kinetic energy carried at high speeds, a train may interact significantly with the bridge and even resonate with it under certain circumstances. This book is unique in that it is devoted entirely to the interaction between the supporting bridges and moving trains, the so-called vehicle-bridge interaction (VBI). It provides an up-to-date coverage of research conducted on various aspects of the VBI problems. Using the series of VBI elements derived, the authors study a number of frontier problems, including the impact response of bridges with elastic bearings, the dynamic response of curved beam to moving centrifugal forces, the stability and derailment of trains moving over bridges shaken by earthquakes, the impact response of two trains crossing on a bridge, the steady-state response of trains moving over elevated bridges, and so on. Contents: Moving Load Problems: Impact Response of Simply-Supported Beams Impact Response of Railway Bridges with Elastic Bearings Mechanism of Resonance and Cancellation for Elastically-Supported Beams Curved Beams Subjected to Vertical and Horizontal Moving Loads Interaction Dynamics Problems: Vehicle-Bridge Interaction Element Based on Dynamic Condensation Vehicle-Bridge Interaction Element Considering Pitching Effect Modeling of Vehicle-Bridge Interactions by the Concept of Contact Forces Vehicle-Rails-Bridge Interaction - Two-Dimensional Modeling Vehicle-Rails-Bridge Interaction - Three-Dimensional Modeling Stability of Trains Moving over Bridges Shaken by Earthquakes
