Dissertation title: Integrated capacity assessment and timetabling models for dense railway networks
Mainline railways in Europe are experiencing increasing use as the worldwide demand for passenger and freight transport is growing across all transport modes. At the same time, much of the existing railway network is reaching its capacity and has become susceptible to disturbances. This thesis creates, optimizes, and evaluates railway timetables to promote more reliable, attractive and sustainable railway transport systems by combining advanced capacity assessment and scheduling models. It demonstrates that optimization, simulation and data analysis can be successfully applied to improving railway traffic planning and account for increased level of service for both passengers and freight operators.
