Summary

 

Transport Engineering and Operations - CIVE97118

Aims

To introduce description, analysis and modelling of elements that are relevant to transport engineering and operations. This includes basic mechanics of transport operations and implications for safety; flow of traffic on open track; queuing at points of conflict or interruption; basic operational and engineering requirements for railways; intelligent transport systems (ITS); roundabouts and priority junctions; traffic signal control; alignment and layout of highway links and free-flow junctions; public passenger transport infrastructure; road safety engineering; and transport system management including use of street space by different kinds of users for different purposes.

 

Role

Lecturer

Transport and its Context - CIVE97116

Aims

  • To introduce students to the fundamentals of the transport system and the context in which it operates, forming the foundation and basis for the rest of the transport MSc courses.

Role

Lecturer

Intelligent Transport Systems - CIVE97127

Aims

  • To provide a rigorous mathematical understanding of the fundamental theories underlying models of travel demand and transport supply and their application to the evaluation and appraisal of transport policies. Both aggregate and disaggregate modelling techniques will be considered.

Role

Lecturer

Traffic Engineering - CIVE97016

Aims

Students taking this module will aim to understand the following:  

  • Traffic flow variables, their measurement and queuing theory.
  • Presentations on survey methods and data analysis techniques required by traffic engineers.
  • The theory and models behind traffic simulation, including an introduction to the VISSIM microscopic traffic simulator.
  • Principles of off-line and on-line traffic signal control, including an introduction to the SCOOT traffic signal control system and its implementation in London.
  • The theory behind motorway monitoring and control.
  • The management of different road user groups, including pedestrians of different abilities, buses, trams and cycles. Additionally a critical examination of the arguments behind traffic segregation and integration.
  • Traffic engineering schemes.
  • Quantitative methods: teaching and practice.
