1. Verhoef, J.B. (author). Shelter legacy: From turn-key shelter implementation to area stimulant.

Degree: 2012, Delft University of Technology

The research sets out to study strategic behaviour in a post-disaster recovery period for long-term development that integrates communities that previously have been ignored. In a broad sense, the aim of this study is to gain a better understanding in how non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can set a community-based legacy in a recovery period for long-term socioeconomic development of an urban area. The focus is on a NGO responsible for resettling disaster victims in the recovery period, participating communities in a larger frame of urban area development. It thereby aims to understand how an initial recovery response can be part of the strategy that improves the urban structure, understand the way in which NGOs govern their program and what is needed to make it locally embedded through capacity building in communities for further development. With this, the research question is: What community-based strategy can a NGO uphold in post-disaster recovery, that sets the base for long-term socioeconomic development of an urban area? The motivation for this study is the increased vulnerability of low-income communities in developing countries towards natural disasters and the actions taken in post-disaster recovery. Globalization has changed the way of governing these enquiries and made them increasingly complex. A variety of foreign organizations and institutions simultaneously aim to implement programs and projects; resulting in a loss of efficiency and potential mismatch between them and local stakeholders. The lack of incorporating local perspectives into decisions and activities has ensured that new proposals are not location specific and decreases the effectiveness consequently. Long-term redevelopment has thereby become increasingly dependent on the agenda of the foreign actors and their resources. Yet, NGOs are present only temporary. As a result, recovery outputs stays short-term with little connection to redevelopment.

2. van der Gun, J.P.T. Multimodal Transportation Simulation for Emergencies using the Link Transmission Model.

Degree: 2018, TRAIL Research School

Emergencies disrupting urban transportation systems cause management problems for authorities. This thesis develops simulation methods that permit analysis thereof and evaluation of candidate management plans, tested in three case studies. It formulates a methodological framework using agent-based choice models and multimodal macroscopic dynamic network loading models, and develops extensions of the Link Transmission Model to deal with more complex and variable fundamental diagrams and initially non-empty roads. Advisors/Committee Members: van Arem, B., Pel, A.J., Delft University of Technology.

Subjects/Keywords: urban emergencies; evacuation modelling; choice modelling; activity-based modelling; dynamic network loading; multimodal networks; agent-based modelling; macroscopic traffic model; en-route choice; Link Transmission Model; Lighthill-Whitham-Richards theory; first-order model; capacity drop; node model; stop-and-go wave; Smulders fundamental diagram; traffic control; environmental conditions; bus bridging; network disruptions
