Handbook of Optimization in the Railway Industry By Ralf Borndörfer
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 334 Pages | ISBN : 3319721526 | 12.72 MB

This book promotes the use of mathematical optimization and operations research methods in rail transportation. The editors assembled thirteen contributions from leading scholars to present a unified voice, standardize terminology, and assess the state-of-the-art.

There are three main clusters of articles, corresponding to the classical stages of the planning process: strategic, tactical, and operational. These three clusters are further subdivided into five parts which correspond to the main phases of the railway network planning process: network assessment, capacity planning, timetabling, resource planning, and operational planning.

 Individual chapters cover:
Simulation

Capacity Assessment

Network Design

Train Routing

Robust Timetabling

Event Scheduling

Track Allocation

Blocking

Shunting

Rolling Stock

Crew Scheduling

Dispatching

Delay Propagation
