The need for evaluation of ITS systems requires new modelling tools that allow a detailed modelling of both the roadside and the in-vehicle systems. One of the elements needed is a reliable longitudinal driver model. In this paper we outline the requirements of such a model and review the models that are available in the literature. We select...

This paper describes an ongoing research project at TNO in the Netherlands for assessing the safety of road networks using micro-simulation techniques. A benefit of micro-simulation comes from the ability to evaluate the safety of new ITS systems, new infrastructure design, management strategies and different traffic compositions beforehand. The...

The modelling of consequences of releases of hazardous materials in the Netherlands has mainly been based on the “Yellow Book”. Although there is no updated version of this official publication, new insights have been developed during the last decades. This article will give an overview of new developments in consequence modelling, focussing on...

Dynamic traffic management and information is used by road operators in order to improve network utilisation, safety or the environment. Examples are influencing the traffic flow by influencing speeds, lane use, route choice or merging operations by employing variable message signs (VMS), Dynamic Route Information Panels (DRIPs), ramp metering...

Purpose Electric freight vehicles (EFVs) are one of the solutions to improve city logistics’ sustainability. EFVs, that are electric powered light and heavy vehicles with a number plate, have the potential to make zero emission city logistics possible within the urban area. However, although trials have been undertaken for the last years, large...

Purpose - Logistics as a sector has a key role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and in reducing the dependency of our economy on non-renewable energy sources. The challenges are enormous: by 2050 the sector needs to have achieved about 50% lower fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions. If freight volumes grow according to expectations,...

We have integrated the atmospheric chemistry and transport model TM5 into the global climate model EC-Earth version 2.4. We present an overview of the TM5 model and the two-way data exchange between TM5 and the IFS model from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the atmospheric general circulation model of EC-Earth. In...

There are no strong indications that mixing FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) biodiesel up to 7 vol%2 and HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) biodiesel up to 30 vol% will result in significant increase in harmful emissions by road traffic. This conclusion is based on the limited toxicological data suggesting low or negligible changes in the hazard...

Due to mismatch of nutrients, high sodium concentration, growth inhibition or system failures, greenhouse growers with substrate-grown crops tend to discharge their drain water. To comply with Water Framework regulations, in future, they must re-use drain water streams as much as possible. With membrane distillation or reverse osmosis, about 80...

Verder dan dat autobanden zwart zijn gaat de kennis niet bij de gemiddelde Nederlander. Zo is slechts vijf tot 10 procent van de automobilisten bekend met het bandenlabel. Onterecht, want banden bepalen voor een groot deel de prestaties van de auto, zoals remweg en brandstofgebruik. De voordelen van kwalitatief betere banden zijn veel groter dan...

The Working Group addressed the current understanding and uncertainties in the processes controlling ammonia (NH3) bi-directional exchange, and in the application of numerical models to describe these processes. As a starting point for the discussion, the Working Group drew on the background document prepared by Flechard et al. (2013)...

Satellite data are increasingly used to provide observation-based estimates of the effects of aerosols on climate. The Aerosol-cci project, part of the European Space Agency's Climate Change Initiative (CCI), was designed to provide essential climate variables for aerosols from satellite data. Eight algorithms, developed for the retrieval of...
