Background: To improve our understanding of the neighborhood environment - physical activity (PA) relationship, it is of importance to assess associations between neighborhood environmental characteristics and neighborhood-based PA. Methods: Participants' (N = 308; 45-65 years) light PA (LPA) and moderate-vigorous PA (MVPA) within a 400, 800,...

Background. Epidemiological evidence on the association between ambient air pollution and brain tumor risk is sparse and inconsistent. Methods. In 12 cohorts from 6 European countries, individual estimates of annual mean air pollution levels at the baseline residence were estimated by standardized land-use regression models developed within the...

In a bid to cost-effectively tackle congestion, traffic management is often seen as a key option to utilise road capacity. Prior to the application of traffic management measures, a-priori analysis allows the effectiveness of measures to be judged and where necessary adapted. However, current approaches do this without considering the effects of...

This study uses mobile phone data to understand mobility patterns in a country, with limited mobility data, in order to give advice about decisions on how to design the national and regional road network. Our method consists of three parts: (1) filtering mobile phone traces to derive mobility patterns, (2) building an adapted formulation of the...

Background: Prenatal exposure to air pollution is considered to be associated with adverse effects on child health. This may partly be mediated by mechanisms related to DNA methylation. Objectives: We investigated associations between exposure to air pollution, using nitrogen dioxide (NO2) as marker, and epigenome-wide cord blood DNA methylation...

A location choice model explains how travellers choose their trip destinations especially for those activities which are flexible in space and time. The model is usually estimated using travel survey data; however, little is known about how to use smart card data (SCD) for this purpose in a public transport network. Our study extracted trip...

Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) is a standard and mandatory tool in some high-risk industries (such as the on-and offshore exploration and production and chemical industry). Presently, the human factor component is often estimated using expert opinions. In practice, experts may use heuristics such as assuming a failure probability of one in ten...

When infrastructures projects are evaluated, it is not only important to evaluate them with models that represent the average daily situation, but also to evaluate them in case of irregular situations like incidents. This becomes especially relevant when various project alternatives are expected to show significantly different scores in case of...

Automated driving technology is emerging. Yet, little is known in the literature about when automated vehicles will reach the market, how penetration rates will evolve and to what extent this new transport technology will affect transport demand and planning. This study uses scenario analysis to identify plausible future development paths of...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological evidence on the association between ambient air pollution and breast cancer risk is inconsistent. OBJECTIVE: We examined the association between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and incidence of postmenopausal breast cancer in European women. METHODS: In 15 cohorts from nine European countries, individual...

Major and minor disturbances can have a considerable impact on the performance of road networks. In this respect, resilience is con-sidered as the ability of a road section to resist and to recover from disturbances in traffic flow. In this contribution, an indicator is pre-sented, the Link Performance Index for Resilience (LPIR), which eval...

Natural environments (NE) are promoted as places that support physical activity (PA), but evidence on PA distribution across various types and sizes of NE is lacking. Accelerometers and GPS-devices measured PA of Dutch general population adults aged 45–65 years (N=279). Five NE types were distinguished: ‘parks’, ‘recreational area’, ...

De grote steden in Nederland worden de komende jaren geconfronteerd met een toenemende groei. Dit vergt nu reeds beslissingen over de inrichting van de stad. Voor de onderbouwing van deze beslissingen worden meestal verkeersmodellen gebruikt. Echter, veel vragen die bestuurders op dit moment hebben kunnen onvoldoende beantwoord worden met de...

Het Lint is een ruim 8km lang beweeglint in het Máximapark in Utrecht dat intensief wordt gebruikt om te wandelen, fietsen, skaten, hardlopen. Een groot succes dus, maar wat verklaart dit succes? Wat zijn de randvoorwaarden en ontwerpprincipes die misschien ook elders voor succesvolle toepassingen kunnen zorgen? Deze vraag stelde de gemeente...
