About this book

This book provides a systematic analysis, modeling and evaluation of the performance of advanced transport systems. It offers an innovative approach by presenting a multidimensional examination of the performance of advanced transport systems and transport modes, useful for both theoretical and practical purposes. Advanced transport systems for the twenty-first century are characterized by the superiority of one or several of their infrastructural, technical/technological, operational, economic, environmental, social and policy performances as compared to their conventional counterparts. The advanced transport systems considered include: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) systems in urban area(s), electric and fuel cell passenger cars, high speed tilting trains, High Speed Rail (HSR), Trans Rapid Maglev (TRM), Evacuated Tube Transport system (ETT), advanced commercial subsonic and Supersonic Transport Aircraft (STA), conventionally- and Liquid Hydrogen (LH2)-fuelled commercial air transportation, advanced Air Traffic Control (ATC) technologies and procedures for increasing the airport runway capacity, Underground Freight Transport (UFT) systems in urban area(s), Long Intermodal Freight Train(s) (LIFTs), road mega trucks, large advanced container ships and freight/cargo aircraft and advanced freight/goods collection distribution networks. This book is intended for postgraduates, researchers, professionals and policy makers working in the transport industry.

Previously, he had kept the posts of Senior Researcher at Manchester Metropolitan University (Manchester, the UK), Loughborough University (Transport Studies Group) (Loughborough, UK) and the Institute of Transport Research (Ljubljana, Slovenia).

Dr JANIĆ has been involved in transport-related research and planning projects at both national and international scale for almost 30 years. He has also published many scientific and academic transport-related papers and presented many at the national and international conferences dedicated to transport. In addition, he has published four books: “Greening Airports: Advanced Technologies and Operations” (2011), “Airport Analysis, Planning and Design: Demand, Capacity and Congestion” (2009), “The Sustainability of Air Transportation: A Quantitative Analysis and Assessment” (2007) and “Air Transport System Analysis and Modelling: Capacity, Quality of Services and Economics” (2000).

As well, Dr JANIĆ is a member of Editorial Boards of several transport research-related journals and the associations and conferences, the latest such as NECTAR (Network on European Communications and Transport Activity Research), Air Transport Research Society (ATRS), Airfield and Airspace Capacity and Delay Committee of TRB (Transportation Research Board) (Washington DC, USA) and Delft Aviation Centre (Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands).
