Comparison of Fleet Size Models for Horizontal Transportation of Shipping Containers using Automated Straddle Carriers

Planning of Horizontal Transport is a significant problem with material impact on the development budget and productivity of a container terminal. This paper uses Queuing Theory, Petri Networks (PNs) and Discrete Event Simulation to address the fleet …

Building Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure to Support Future Cities

Scale, rather than complexity, is the most visible feature of civil engineering projects. At any time, a global race is underway among cities and countries to become hosts to the tallest skyscraper, the longest bridge, or the largest airport. …

Port Environmental Management

The environmental impacts of ports have seen increasing attention in recent years, from the academic community, regulatory bodies, and port authorities. The growth of maritime transport has led to the expansion of ports that now need to handle larger …

Economic and environmental trade-offs in water transportation

In recent years slow steaming has resurfaced as a fuel saving measure that allowed ship owners to significantly cut operational costs. Reduced fuel consumption leads to lower levels of greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions. Port authorities have …

Introduction to network theory and game theory as frameworks for the analysis of critical infrastructure

This paper provides an accessible introduction to the application of basic concepts from network theory and game theory to identify critical elements of networks. Simple examples are used to illustrate the application of these methods in the analysis …

Security and reliability of the liner container-shipping network: Analysis of robustness using a complex network framework

The theory of complex networks is a fast growing field of applied mathematics. Having its roots in the random graph model by Erdo¨s and Ranyi (1959), interest in the field has been sparked by the recent development of the smallworld and scale-free …
