WIT Transactions on The Built Environment
This volume contains special contributions presented at the 14th International Conference on Railway Engineering Design and Operation (COMPRAIL/14) held in Rome. It is a companion to the Volume containing most of the contributions (Volume 135 of WIT Transactions on the Built Environment) and comprises papers presented orally during the Conference.
Encouraging the update and use of advanced systems, the book promotes their general awareness throughout the management, design, manufacture and operation of railways and other emerging passenger, freight and transit systems. It particularly emphasises the use of computer systems in advanced railway engineering.
The book consists of five sections, covering: Planning; Computer techniques and simulations; Energy supply and consumption; Monitoring and control; Safety and security.
