Objectives
After completing the course, students will have acquired general skills related to the field of transport, as well as specific engineering knowledge on transport vehicles by road and rail. Moreover, the sutdent will learn about the transport sector from the point of view of management and calculation of traffic parameters.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
1.- INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORT. 2.- TRAFFIC ENGINEERING. MACROSCOPIC MODELS. 3.- TRAFFIC ENGINEERING. MICROSCOPIC MODELS. 4.- VERTICAL TRANSPORT 5.- EXTRA TRANSPORT. 6.- FLEET TRANSPORT 7.- PASSENGER TRAIN OPERATIONS. 8.- ENERGY ASPECTS OF TRANSPORT 9.- TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS.
Learning activities and methodology
The activities used for the training of this subject are fundamentally based on theoretical classes in which the subjects of the course are developed in detail, accompanied, when necessary, by problem sessions given in the classroom. A series of practical classes (2) serve to put in the student's judgment particualr aspects exposed in the classroom. Finally, visits are made to companies in the sector in order that the student knows first hand some aspects related to the subject. Visits and their number depend each academic year on the number of students enrolled. When there is an opportunity, speakers from the sector will be invited.
