Book Chapter
Stewart, K., & Maher, M. (2006)
Minimal revenue network tolling: system optimisation under stochastic assignment with elastic demand. In S. Lawphongpanich, D. Hearn, & M. Smith (Eds.), Mathematics in transport : selected proceedings of the 4th IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Transport : in honour of Richard Allsop, (201-218). Boston, MA: Springer Verlag. https://doi.org/10.1007/0-387-29645-X_9
The classical road tolling problem is to toll network links such that, under the principles of Wardropian User Equilibrium (UE) assignment, a System Optimising (SO) flow patte...

Effects of transit real-time information usage strategies.

Journal Article
Fonzone, A., & Schmoecker, J. (2014)
Effects of transit real-time information usage strategies. Transportation research record, 2417, 121-129. https://doi.org/10.3141/2417-13
Real-time information is becoming increasingly available to transit travellers. This paper discusses the effects of RTI available before the start of a journey in terms of lin...

Machine independent algorithm for concurrent finite-element problems

Conference Proceeding
Buchanan, W., Buchanan, W. J., & Gupta, N. K. (1996)
Machine independent algorithm for concurrent finite-element problems. In 3rd International IEEE Conference on Computation in Electromagnetics, 1996, 17-20. doi:10.1049/cp:19960150
The finite-element method, initially developed for mechanical and civil engineering applications, is now applied to electromagnetics. This paper describes how parallel process...

Cycle lanes: their effect on driver passing distances in urban areas.

Presentation / Conference
McHale, A., & Stewart, K. (2013, January)
Cycle lanes: their effect on driver passing distances in urban areas. Paper presented at 45th Annual Conference of the University Transport Study Group
The current literature in the field of cycle lanes has shown often contradictory evidence as to the benefits and risks of cycle lanes and previous work has specifically shown ...

Journal Article
Ge, Y., Stewart, K., Liu, Y., Tang, C., & Liu, B. (2015)
Investigating boundary effects of congestion charging in a single bottleneck scenario. Transport, 1-15
This paper investigates the impact of realistic congestion charging regimes where undesired boundary effects of imposing charges may occur and may be both temporal and spatial...

Better for everyone: an approach to multimodal network design considering equity.

Journal Article
Camporeale, R., Caggiani, L., Fonzone, A., & Ottomanelli, M. (2016)
Better for everyone: an approach to multimodal network design considering equity. Transportation Research Procedia, 19, 303-315. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.trpro.2016.12.090
We propose a formulation of the Network Design Problem (NDP) to support transport planners in dealing with multimodal networks in contexts characterised by different (and some...

A model of bus bunching under reliability-based passenger arrival patterns.

Journal Article
Fonzone, A., Schmöcker, J., & Liu, R. (2015)
A model of bus bunching under reliability-based passenger arrival patterns. Transportation Research Procedia, 7, 276-299. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.trpro.2015.06.015
If bus service departure times are not completely unknown to the passengers, non-uniform passenger arrival patterns can be expected. We propose that passengers decide their ar...

Evaluating the impact of innovative cycling measures in EU cycling cities.

Presentation / Conference
O'Dolan, C., Stewart, K., & Tricker, R. (2014, May)
Evaluating the impact of innovative cycling measures in EU cycling cities. Paper presented at 10th Annual Scottish Transport Research and Applications Conference, Glasgow
The impact of “softer” measures to improve cycling mode share are often difficult to quantify and assess. The CHAMP project is an Intelligent Energy Europe funded project whic...
