The central premise of Design for Transport is that the designer's role is to approach design for transport from the point of view of the user. People have a collection of wants and needs and a significant proportion of them are to do with their requirements for mobility. The authors show how creative designers can take a user-focused approach for a wide range of types of transport products and systems. In so doing their starting point is one of creative dissatisfaction with what is currently available, and their specialist capability is in imagining and developing new solutions which respond to that opportunity. How this is tackled varies depending on the context, and the variety of solutions produced reflects the different aspirations and needs of the people they are designing for. The chapters cover user needs and transport, design and the transport system, transport design case studies, and the case for the automobile. A conclusion briefly signals what the future for transport design might be. Lavishly illustrated throughout in four-colour, Design for Transport, is an imaginative and rigorous guide to how designers can take a user-centred and socially responsible approach to tackling a range of types of transport, from systems to products and from bicycles to automobiles, demonstrating a rich array of solutions through case studies.

This book deals with the design and optimization of the bucket elevator using the discrete element method (DEM). It describes the underlying scientific basis for the design of transport equipment using computer simulations and is focused on issues relevant to the industrial sector, mechanical engineering; and the transport, treatment, measurement, and storage of bulk materials. It presents solutions for mitigating bulk material supply chain interruptions due to process malfunctions and failures, utilizing research on monitoring and evaluating of the dynamic processes of particulate matter. The aim of the book is to help readers new to the field with the design of innovative devices. Imparting practical information aimed at saving time and money in project design, the book is ideal for engineers, designers, and researchers concerned with all aspects of bulk materials. Introduces and explains fully the Discrete Element Method using measured values as inputs for the method; Shows whether calculated simulations and real measured values models can be used for design; Illustrates how to validate, calibrate, and optimize the dynamic processes of bulk elevators; Explains how to test transport and storage equipment before it is produced using dynamic simulation of material flow on transport lines, saving time and money.

Sustainability and the Design of Transport Interchanges

Sustainability and the Design of Transport Interchanges

This book presents design principles for transport interchanges and offers analysis of best practice in the UK and abroad.

The interchange is a new form of transport building which integrates into a single whole various modes of public transport, putting the passenger first (rather than the infrastructure). This book presents design principles for transport interchanges and offers analysis of best practice in the UK and abroad. The author demonstrates how this complex new building type integrates with the city, on the one hand, and with different types of transport on the other. In this integration design in both plan and section are important, as is urban and landscape design. The idea of ‘interchange’ is increasingly relevant as town planners, engineers and architects address the question of sustainable development with its emphasis on energy efficiency, social cohesion, access for the elderly, and urban regeneration.

After the demise of Fokker in 1996 one feared that interest in aeronautical engineering would strongly diminish. Two years later the situation was re-appraised, and the interest in aeronautical engineering remained, so the course was reinstated. This title includes the author's lecture notes from these courses.

Focusing from the perspective of the user, Urban Mobility Design investigates how designed mobility and design processes can respond to and drive the emerging social and technological disruptions in the passenger transport sector. Profound technological advances are changing the mobility expectations of city populations around the world. Transportation design is an under represented research area of urban transportation planning. Urban Mobility Design addresses this gap, providing research-based analysis on current and future needs of urban transportation passengers. The book examines mobility from a uniquely multidisciplinary perspective, involving a variety of innovative design and transportation planning approaches. Examines urban mobility from a new perspective Coherently combines current research and practice in transport design, technology, mobility, user behaviour experience, and cultural analysis Utilizes hands-on experiences with transportation manufacturers, transit operators and engineers to bring a practical view on today’s mobility challenges Shows how design approaches to problem solving can influence travel behaviour and improve passenger experience

This book "is a compendium of architectural and engineering achievement, revealing the benefits of an integrated approach to planning. [The book] clearly provides essential information on multi-modal terminals ; [is] well illustrated and universally relevant, with case studies from the UK, Europe, North America, Australasia and the Far East ; [and helps to] understand how 'joined up thinking' is applied on a large scale. The movement towards multi-modal interchanges has only recently come of age. This book reviews the trend for the first time, explaining how separate modes of transport are brought together and linked through 'joined up thinking', enabling transport designers and authorities to exploit interchange opportunities more effectively. International case studies are used to show how existing examples were planned and designed, and ideas to improve transfer and mobility in future projects are also outlined"--Back cover.

A study was conducted to explore the structural, manufacturing, and service and environmental considerations that could impact the design of composite fuselage structure; to assess the severity of these considerations; and to delineate the principal design drivers. A summary of the major design considerations discussed in this report are listed in Table 1. Each consideration is ranked with respect to whether it is a principal design driver, a requirement that probably will not govern the design but should be checked (secondary requirement) or a consideration that requires the development of new design criteria.

This second book of the series on Transport Systems and Traffic Engineering addresses operational, safety, costs, benefits, control and geometrical aspects associated with street design and roadway network planning in urban areas. The design features and planning goals consider urban-sensitive solutions for coping with motorized traffic, pedestrians and public transport passengers. Great emphasis is placed on the critical interactions involved with traffic safety problems. The included papers offer a variety of sample studies and developed projects and provide useful references to academics and traffic engineers. One of the most noteworthy characteristics of this book is that the reported experiences come from different national policies and standard requirements as well as local guidelines. As such it provides a well-structured and consistent book that will be of great interest to those working in this field.
