Summary

 

Highway Engineering - CIVE97122

Aims

  • The impact of recent trends in logistics and supply chain management on freight transport. 
  • Presentations on the strategic, tactical and operational levels of freight transport. 
  • Routing and scheduling methods used in tour and load planning. 
  • The developing field of mobile communication in freight transport. 
  • City logistics: the problems and solutions for freight transport in cities. 
  • The specialist fields of port logistics, construction logistics and hazardous material transport. 
  • Freight flow modelling techniques as used in national, regional and urban planning. 

Role

Course Leader

Transport, Environmental Impacts and Safety - CIVE97134

Aims

  • Describe the principal environmental impacts and safety concerns of transport, and to provide tools and techniques for evaluating air quality, noise and climate impacts of transport. 

  • Train you to understand and evaluate the principles of transport risk and safety specifically with respect to different transport modes and human factors. 

  • Introduce the topic of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics, specifically the mathematics of crowd flows and human behaviour to enable critical evaluation of pedestrian simulation models and evacuation experimental design.

Role

Lecturer

Railway Management, Operation and Engineering - CIVE97133

Aims

  • Railways and their systems comprise many disciplines, such as planning, policies, management, and most branches of engineering. They are complex systems and it is often a challenge to have a broad view, not just considering relevant elements only. For those who are interested in and who wish to work in the industry it is important to have a broad view, seeing the railways as a whole system, whilst having a solid understanding of the complex system elements.
  • This module aims to provide students with an understanding of railway planning, management, engineering and operations, both in the UK and worldwide. The lectures will cover the core elements of 1) Governance, 2) Demand and Marketing, 3) Operation Planning, 4) Safety, and 5) Assets. Examples are drawn from the UK and London’s railway systems, as well as the world's urban metro and railway systems.

Role

Lecturer

Air Traffic Management - CIVE97130

Aims

  • To introduce the functional elements of Air Traffic Management (ATM), ground and airborne. 
  • To understand the components of current ATM systems and future ones. 
  • To cover the constraints to the operation of ATM systems including: airspace capacity; operational airspace safety; environment and economics.
