来自美国伊利诺伊大学香槟分校的Rapik Saat博士将于1012-14日在我院进行3次学术讲座,具体信息如下:

题目:Introduction to High-Speed and Passenger Rail Planning

内容简介:High-speed and other passenger rail transportation systems have been, or are being, developed in dozens of countries around the world. In order to successfully develop the systems understanding the engineering, as well as the operation, economics, finance and management are crucial. This series of lectures provides an introduction to transportation planning and processes involved in planning a new high-speed rail system.

Biography

Dr. Rapik Saat,research assistant professor, rail transportation and engineering center (RailTEC) ,department of civil and environmental engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Dr. Rapik Saat holds B.S. (2003), M.S. (2005), and Ph.D. (2009) degrees in civil engineering, all from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He has been a research assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UIUC since February 2011. His research interests are transportation safety and risk analysis, high-speed rail planning, railroad civil engineering economics, data mining and operations research. He co-teaches a graduate course in High-Speed Rail Planning and previously co-taught a course in Shared Rail Corridor Engineering and Operations. Recently, he served as Technical Manager for a multidisciplinary high-speed rail (HSR) preliminary feasibility study for the State of Illinois responsible in project coordinating, reviewing work of and integrating results from five separate teams in Engineering, Ridership, Operation & Maintenance, Economic Analysis and Finance. He also served as the leader for the Engineering team, responsible for identification of potential HSR stations, route alignments and profiles, train performance and running times, appropriate construction types and construction costs. His current research projects include addressing the risk of extreme events related to HSR passenger and hazardous material freight train operations.
