Abstract

The narrow-gauge locomotive ‘Hydrogen Pioneer’, which was developed and constructed at the University of Birmingham, was employed to establish the performance of a hydrogen-hybrid railway traction vehicle. To achieve this several empirical tests were conducted. The locomotive [...]

1st International Mediterranean Science and Engineering Congress (IMSEC) WOS: 000412033800073 In this study, an overview has been presented a classification of the vehicles using hydrogen with different ways. The using of hydrogen in vehicles has been categorized into two main categories [...]

Abstract

Nature has evolved structural materials along millions of years of incremental changes to fulfil functional requirements of very different situations. Let´s take as an example the sharks, one of the best adapted species for swimming across the [...]

Abstract

The present work addresses different aspects of the manufacturing process optimization of structural components for the automotive sector. More precisley the development of a novel bumper beam is being pursued by combining steel and composite to achieve, ultimatly, a weight reduction [...]

Abstract

The benefits of electrified powertrains for light-duty vehicles are well understood, however sufficient published information is not available on the benefits of advanced powertrains on the various types of medium and heavy duty vehicles. Quantifying the benefits of powertrain electrification [...]

Abstract

This paper explores the factors affecting the uptake of hybrid and electric vehicles in the European Union (EU) using data from two extensive cross-sectional surveys. Each survey consists of 26,500 responses to a questionnaire that combines socio-economic and behavioral aspects. The [...]

Abstract

Electric mobility offers a low cost of travel along with energy and harmful emissions savings. Nevertheless, a comprehensive literature review is missing for the prospects of electric vehicles in developing countries. Such an overview would be instrumental for policymakers to understand [...]

Abstract

To limit or, even better, reduce the emission of CO2 and the corresponding global warming effects, measures should be taken in the two most polluting economic sectors: the energy and transport sectors. The Netherlands has set goals to reduce CO2 emissions, in line with global and [...]
