Research topic/area: A Framework for Sustainable Pavements Implementation Applied to Portuguese Conditions

Research Summary: Proposing a comprehensive framework (e.g. Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) and its software DARWin ME) for sustainable pavement implementation applied to Portuguese conditions that includes data preparation to locally calibrate the MEPDG procedure and adopting a proper behavior model for Portuguese conditions which may result in delivering pavement catalogue for Portuguese conditions and developing implementation guidelines for the future adoption of DARWin-ME in Portugal.

Thesis Topic: The main area of this research work is quality in urban public transport. It examines whether there are connections between quality on one side and ridership and mode choice on the other side. It focuses on elements of network design and service provision such as accessibility and connectivity but incorporates other elements that may play an important role. An urban mobility and public transport satisfaction survey has been designed and developed and the data gathered are used to calibrate structural equation models in various level of public transport operation and mode choice. The end results of these models aim to understand the relations between those elements, quality and the decision making in mode choice.

Thesis Topic: Year 1 is assigned to taking selected courses that provide a theoretical and methodological foundation for the PhD project: transport demand modeling, research methodologies, transport economics, decision analysis, transport policy and institutions and business models and contracts. Year 2 is assigned to topic discovery, problem definition, proof of relevance, literature review. A major review of appraisal practice is underway, as well as a theoretical conceptualization of the intergenerational problem in appraisal. A case study will be carried out for proof of relevance. Year 3 starts with a methodological discussion followed by the submission and presentation of a dissertation project. A visit to MIT will take place during this year. A further visit to the University of Antwerp is planned to discuss the econometric aspects of the intergenerational problem. A publication is to be submitted following this visit. Year 3 is assigned to discussing and refining the methodology, to gathering data, and to begin carrying it out. Year 4 is assigned to conclude carrying out the methodology, including data processing, reflection and dissertation completion.

Thesis Topic: This thesis is about flexible airport development. It focuses on how to improve and adapt the passengers' processes of an airport terminal, in order to cope with air transport uncertainty and dynamism through flexible options and assess which one produces the best results. The goal is to study the airport terminal flexibility by analyzing its processes. One of the hypotheses of this thesis is that a terminal with flexible processes is a flexible airport terminal. Uncertainty results of several factors, such as demand, economic cycles, environmental constraints or land-use restrictions. Flexibility has been pointed as a key mechanism to face uncertainty though the discussion is mainly conceptual. No methodology to measure the benefits of flexible options has been provided. The approach in this study is to analyse the terminal processes for passengers and herein, apply flexible options. Then, a decision support tool is being developed to assess the benefits of flexible options in order to choose the one which produces the best results.

Research topic/area: Road safety: Tools to Injury Prevention – modeling and optimization for efficient management system of the emergency services

Research Summary: In order to provide efficient tools to promote the analysis of risk factors associated to injury severities and good practices in safety interventions, the project LIVE aims at the development of a data system resulting from a linkage process of the medical information and police accident report. The project outcomes will provide know-how to define measures embracing the road environment, particularly their influence on pedestrian accidents, but also to promote an efficient management system of the emergency services –further interests in implementation of an optimization system and definition of hotspots.

Thesis Topic: The main aim of this research project is to enhance public transport systems by introducing a holistic view of the whole system they are embedded in. By broadening the design space further than the existing boundaries of the transport systems and by introducing new channels in the service delivery process it is possible to find innovative ways to cocreate value. Therefore, the proposed research project has three main objectives:

  1. Understand, design and propose a traveller value constellation.
  2. Design, implement and evaluate mobile integrated service offerings cocreated by customers and partners of the traveller value constellation.
  3. Identify factors that influence customers’ satisfaction and intention of use of such solutions and provide guidelines to the design of mobile integrated service offerings that enhance customer experience.

Thesis Topic: As part of the thesis to develop will be held in the first instance, a diagnosis of track geometry degradation patterns and a characterization of the current state of the various lines that make up the Portuguese Railways in terms of their geometric condition location. It is also aimed at the characterization of the efficiency of maintenance operations, through mathematical modeling of the dispersion patterns obtained for data recovery values ​​obtained for each route of attack. It is also purpose of this work the development of a new indicator of geometric track quality to be used in predicting the degradation of their point defects. Finally, based on this indicator, plans to build a model predictive maintenance needs associated with the existence and evolution of point defects that can serve as input for generating algorithms to optimize the timing of railroad maintenance activities.

Research topic/area: An Agent-Based Simulation approach to model a Urban Mobility System. An application to the Lisbon Metropolitan Area

Research Summary: With this research we intend to develop a simulation tool that allows analyzing the mode choice behavior on the Lisbon Metropolitan Area. This behavior will be influenced by the introduction of new more demand responsive transport options like the minibus, carpooling, carsharing and shared taxis. These new transport operators will emerge as small private companies that intend to gain position in an already existent mobility market. This model will act as a decision support tool to guide the LMA mobility market to a more sustainable and efficient configuration.
