Thesis director : Jean Laterrasse | Framers : Fabien Leurent, Anne Aguiléra

Thierno AW is a Ph-D in transport engineering at Université Paris-Est The thesis is financed thought an INRETS and Ile-de-France Region partnership. The defense is due early 2009. Thesis summary : The new town of Marne-la-Vallée is a typical example of the coordination of transportation networks and urban planning policy : its linear development along two major axes, the highway A4 and the line A of the regional rail network (RER), was intended to provide a long term travel solution. Today, (...)



Microeconomic analysis of urban space congestion

Thesis director : Fabien Leurent

Vincent BRETEAU is PhD student in urban and transport economics at Université Paris-Est Thesis summary The thesis deals with the in detail analysis of spatial externalities in urban transport and land use. It entails several objectives : to define, in analogy to the transport world, what may consitute urban space congestion ; to analyze the consequences of this congestion externality on the urban markets (and particularly the real estate market) ; to work out corrective strategies. Keywords (...)

The shipment size in interurban freight transport : from microeconomic

Thesis Director : Fabien LEURENT

François COMBES is a Ph-D in Transport Engineering. He is a civil servant of MEEDDAT, French Ministry of Ecology, Energy and Sustainable Development. Thesis Summary Most spatialised models of the demand for freight transport rely on more or less accurate representations of the freight transport system as an economic sector. The relevancy of these representations, as well as the quality of the databases used for parameter calibration are critical for those models’ realism. We propose a (...)
