Urban sustainable mobility. Part 2: Simulation models and impacts estimation

Armando CARTENÌ

The urban sustainable transport policies are very different in terms of costs and expected benefits, and the effects of these policies and their combinations are difficult to anticipate on a purely intuitive basis and sometimes the end effect could be contrary to intuitive expectations (e.g. policies aimed to reduce pollution, ending up in increasing it). In this context, the concept of eco-rational planning assumes a central role. This means identifying the right mixture of interventions to be (..)

Solving a problem of establishing a connection between post offices in the area of a city

Biljana GRGUROVIC/ Slavica STRBAC/ Jelena MILUTINOVIC/ Mirjana POPOVIC

According to The General Plan of Post Network and in accordance with the criteria for opening branches of postal services for customers numerous postal offices which perform delivery services are located on the territory of every large city area. In case of using the system for combined decentralization one of the offices is assigned the role of the central deliverance post office. If the central office cannot be connected to some other unit directly, their connection is realized through one or (..)

Determine the safe transport of dangerous goods route

Viktor DOLIA/ Irina ENGLEZI

The methods of conflict situations assessment were analyzed, and it was established that the main shortcoming is the disregard of the probability of occurrence of the RTA involving an individual road user. Based on the factor analysis conducted, the non-linear model of the probability of the RTA occurrence in the transport network segments was developed. Also, the model of the probability of the RTA occurrence in transport junctions was improved. It will enable, if using respective optimization (..)

Risk sharing in the paper ticket distribution system on the example of municipal transport union of the upper Silesian industrial district in Katowice

Anna URBANEK

Properly organized ticket distribution is a crucial tool to realize tariff policy of public passenger transport provider in the given area, as well as the factor influencing the ticket sale profits. Providing the proper accessibility of public communication ticket sale network requires signing contracts with third parties, which is consequently connected with the necessity to divide the tasks and responsibilities among them, which generates certain risk for each of the parties. In the article th(..)

Improving the system of warranty service of trucks in foreign markets

Irina MAKAROVA/ Rifat KHABIBULLIN/ Eduard BELYAEV/ Artur BELYAEV

The article is devoted to the practical methods development of improving one of the ways to ensure the health of trucks in the system warranty. Methodology is aimed at optimizing the processes of formation of warranty spare parts kits during the implementation of KAMAZ trucks in foreign markets. The example is given to demonstrate the importance of different factors in the formation of the warranty set for different regions. The algorithm was developed to assess the qualitative composition forme(..)

Method for pre-processing of level crossing image

Roman RYBALKA/ Konstantin HONCHAROV

Actuality of problem in the improvement of transport safety at level crossings (LC) is caused by increasing the number of vehicles and reducing discipline of vehicle drivers. One of ways for solution of this problem is associated with using the video surveillance systems for monitoring danger area of level crossing. In such systems due to the limited bandwidth of data channel usually the image compression techniques are used. In this paper the pre-processing method for compression of images is p(..)

New approach in definition of multi-stop flight routes

Srećko KRILE/ Marina KRILE

Optimization and profitability approaches play a crucial and central role in airline industry today. The main problem is how to overcome complexity by providing effective route schedule with minimal empty seats. So we need capable tools to re-optimize existing flight routes or to offer new one instead. This research deals about the efficient heuristic algorithm for optimal transportation of N different passenger contingents between ending points. We want to find out better transport plan with mi(..)

CSR in TSL companies

Joanna DYCZKOWSKA

TSL companies are characterized by high dynamics of an increase of incomes, and hence increased shipping. Owing to a rational policy in the area of the consolidation of production and distribution, they may boast of a better use of the means of transport. The purpose of this article is to present the activities in the area of the eco-friendly CSR aspect in the activities of TSL companies taking into consideration particularly logistic operators. The research methods used in the study include an (..)

Investigation on features and tendencies of axle-box heating

Olegas LUNYS/ Stasys DAILYDKA/ Gintautas BUREIKA

Breakdown of rolling stock axle-boxes if not detected in due time may cause a rail accident or disaster. At present, a lot of advanced technologies, modern equipment and devices, which “recognizes” faulty axle-boxes when the train is in motion, have been implemented. However, the timely identification of breakdown of rolling stock axle-boxes still is an acute problem, the initial stage of damage emergence being especially problematic. Presently, rolling stock axle-box breakdown is determined acc(..)

Analysis of local influences in structural details of the bridges

Adam RUDZIK/ Stefan PRADELOK

The article analyses the problems of local influences in structural details of bridges as the critical locations, whose damages or excessive force may directly affect the safety of users. These analyses are shown on selected examples. Presented is the example of local changes in the forms of proper vibrations in the node of the truss bridge that can be used in expert issues concerning the causes of damages. The second example are the changes in stresses in the stay cable anchorage element includ(..)
