Transactions on Transport Sciences 2010, 3(2):53-66 | DOI: 10.2478/v10158-010-0011-3

The biomechanical response of the head during impact loading represents a globally highlighted issue associated mainly with passive vehicle safety. Based on the detection of the dynamic values and biomaterial characteristics during the head impact loading are we able to observe the biomechanical response of biological structures to the loading. The internal mechanical response to the speed vector spreading in both extra- and subdural areas is discussed and its dependency on the characteristics of external mechanical loading. Mathematical and physical models were used for the computational tasks of inverse dynamics that allow the solving of interactional...

Modelling of Price Demand Elasticity for Entry to Bus Terminals

M. Lánská

Transactions on Transport Sciences 2010, 3(2):67-70 | DOI: 10.2478/v10158-010-0008-y

This article deals with the modelling of price demand elasticity for entry to bus terminals. The model was applied to a specific bus terminal - CBT Prague Florenc (the abbreviation CBT stands for Central bus terminal).

An Application for the Impendance Spectroscopy Method and Building Material Testing

M. Luňák, I. Kusák

Transactions on Transport Sciences 2010, 3(2):71-76 | DOI: 10.2478/v10158-010-0009-x

The impedance spectroscopy is used to draw information concerning electrical properties of liquids and solids. Its principles can be used easily to advantage without any prior knowledge of electrochemistry. To apply the impedance spectroscopy method at the Physics Department, Faculty of Civil Engineering, TU Brno, the method had to be adapted to the laboratory environment conditions. Furthermore, a dedicated software had to be created for this method-based diagnostics. The author of this paper has created an application called IS_alpha, which meets these requirements. Measurements employing this application are fast and convenient.

Methods of Safety Estimation in Road Traffic with Taking Pedestrian Traffic Problems into Consideration

Marzenna Dębowska-Mróz, Elżbieta Szychta

Transactions on Transport Sciences 2010, 3(2):77-82 | DOI: 10.2478/v10158-010-0010-4

In this paper basic data are presented which characterise the state of road traffic safety in Poland, and methods of road traffic safety danger estimation are characterised.

Acceptance of Train Delays by Passengers

L. Týfa, M. Jacura, M. Svetlík, M. Vachtl

Transactions on Transport Sciences 2010, 3(2):83-92 | DOI: 10.2478/v10158-010-0012-2

The article deals with an analysis of a final evaluation of a survey among passengers which aimed at defining a subjective rate of delay acceptance by passengers and disorder of the mass public transport system's connections in cases of delays.
