Research Group 3 - Transport Analysis and Planning (TAP)

Scope & Objectivesrg3_template.jpg

The main subjects pursued by the Transport Analysis and Planning (TAP) Group consist of airline and airport planning, urban transport planning, traffic-related air pollution analysis, and facility location, using advanced optimization and/or simulation approaches.

  • The topics where the group’s airline research is concentrated at present are strategic network and fleet planning and crew planning. With respect to airports, the focus is currently placed on slot allocation problems.
  • The planning and management problems raised by the setup and operation of new urban transport modes/technologies, such as electric vehicles, car- and bike-sharing, and automated vehicles, are among the top research priorities of the group.
  • The development of an integrated modeling framework to analyze the impacts of road traffic on pollutant emissions, air quality and human (and building) health is another of the group’s main research topics.
  • The facility location problems dealt with in the group concern both public facilities (e.g., emergency shelters and fire stations) and intermodal terminals.
