Future-proof urban development. Evaluating the impact of flexible assets in coping with the uncertain future conditions

The project was funded by the Network City and Landscape (NSL) to investigate the impact of flexible designs in coping with the uncertain future offices demand. The potential growth in the home-​office working mode poses a large uncertainty on the future offices demand. Flexible offices can help limiting More

Multi-Stakeholder Decision support framework to identify and evaluate resilience improvement interventions for interdependent infrastructure systems

Infrastructure systems are susceptible to hazard events, which disrupts their functionality leading to direct and indirect consequences for their stakeholders as well as the public. Therefore, infrastructure managers need to execute interventions to improve the resilience of their system of interest. Due to the complexity and interdependency of More

Maintaining train schedule STABILITY and managing time table reserves via digitalized railway intervention planning

The future of rail transport will be one where trains carrying passengers and goods flow seamlessly from their origins to their destinations. Potential disruptions due to train incidents will be foreseen with the extensive use of surveillance technologies, and either prevented through the implementation of detailed action plans More

Future-proofing strategies FOr RESilient transport networks against Extreme Events (FORESEE)

System-wide transportation risks are not well understood across modes, regions, and critical interdependent sectors, creating uncertainty about risks resulting from a major system disruption. There is a lack of resilience schemes, especially for the long term, integrated into transport infrastructure due to an inability to monetize resilience for More

An Optimal Sustainment Measures Programme for Urban Infrastructure Networks

Urban infrastructure networks are the lifelines of modern urban society. They provide water, electricity, gas, telecommunications and mobility. In order to continue to provide these services, the networks must be maintained, repaired, renewed and adjusted at certain intervals. Nevertheless, in spite of careful maintenance, failures and breakdowns can More
