  • Business and network models for innovation: strategic logic and the role of network position

    Firms increasingly organise their innovation activities in networked environments, including specific models such as supplier-network innovation, coopetition, or open innovation with a large set of stakeholders. These types of business and network models for innovation are often discussed from one of two main approaches – the strategic or the structural. The strategic approach examines the focus ...

  • Dynamic control of infrastructural networks

    Infrastructural networks have a large impact on social, economic, and ecological values for people. The providers of infrastructural networks are confronted with a rapidly changing world on and around these networks. In this paper, a simple model of dynamic control is presented, which is a combination of a dynamic control model and a dynamic process model. The dynamic control model defines the ...

  • Models for reducing the risk of critical networked infrastructures

    In this paper, we review the literature studying how to reduce the disruption risk to critical networked infrastructures. This is an important area of research because huge consequences result from infrastructure disruptions. As a result, this research area has grown a lot in the last decade. In this review we discuss articles from the literature, place them into categories, and suggest topics ...

  • Corporate helix model: the industry and triple helix networks

    A different type of university-industry-government relations took place in South Korea. In the triple helix model the entrepreneurial university becomes a key element of the innovation system. However, most universities in the world would not be autonomous in this network relationship. This paper proposes "The Corporate Helix Model", in which the university is established or acquired and ...

  • Influence of network connection and synchronisation for Hindmarsh–Rose model

    In recent years, the chaotic synchronisation of neural networks has been an urgent problem. In this paper, a kind of small parameter r unmatched neuron network is considered. At first, the dynamical behaviours of the HR neuron model are analysed by the ISI diagram. A change of parameter r in small range will result in great change in the size of the chaos attractor and so, the significance of ...

  • An operational model for vehicular pollution from a road network

    We present a brief review of the mathematical model CAR-FMI (contaminants in the Air from a Road, by the Finnish Meteorological Institute). The model has been developed for regulatory purposes, for predicting dispersion of pollution from a road network. It consists of an emission module, treatment of the meteorological time-series, an atmospheric dispersion module, and statistical analysis of the ...

  • Belief networks for engineering applications

    A relatively new form of artificial intelligence, namely belief networks, provides flexible modelling structures for capturing and evaluating uncertainty. The belief network consists of nodes to model the variables of the domain, and arcs to represent conditional dependence between variables. The development of a belief network requires four major steps: variable definition, identification of ...

  • The intermodal networks: a survey on intermodalism

    A new and rather independent research field is now emerging on intermodalism, because intermodalism, that is the intermodal transportation, must study the behaviour of systems different from single-mode transport systems. In fact, the importance of this new research field, its potential interdisciplinary of modelling the problem with the science of complex networks, is not yet completely ...

  • A prototype of a hierarchical global logistics network planning model

    In this article, we present a prototype Global Logistics (GL) networks planning model in which the GL facilities such as hubs and depots are hierarchically characterised. The proposed method is developed based on the fundamentals of hierarchical cluster analysis and integer programming techniques to determine the corresponding types, locations and numbers of service areas of facilities involved ...

  • Network Models in the Control Room the Fact and the Fiction

    In this article Dan Stevens, Senior Support Engineer for Water Distribution Software at Wallingford Software, discusses the potential for Network Models to be used in the control room, what is possible, and indeed what is a sensible level of integration of network modelling with other systems (such as telemetry and SCADA) for a more complete understanding of system operation and performance. For ...

  • A flood forecasting neural network model with genetic algorithm

    It will be useful to attain a quick and accurate flood forecasting, particularly in a flood-prone region. The accomplishment of this objective can have far reaching significance by extending the lead time for issuing disaster warnings and furnishing ample time for citizens in vulnerable areas to take appropriate action, such as evacuation. In this paper, a novel hybrid model based on recent ...

  • RoadAir - Road network emission and dispersion model

    Traffic is the main source of air pollution in many urban areas. RoadAir is a computerized planning tool for calculating emissions and concentrations of air ...

  • A dynamic ventilation model for gravity sewer networks

    To implement any effective odour and corrosion control technology in the sewer network, it is imperative that the airflow through gravity sewer airspaces be quantified. This paper presents a full dynamic airflow model for gravity sewer systems. The model, which is developed using the finite element method, is a compressible air transport model. The model has been applied to the North Head ...

  • Railway network case study

    Réseau Ferré de France (RFF) owns the French national railway network. Its main purpose is as a financial structure focusing on debt management and financing of large investment projects. RFF commissioned a review of their risk assessment procedures jointly from Accenture and Vose. Vose provided the risk analysis technical expertise to improve and harmonize their risk analysis ...

  • Stability of a model of power microgeneration network using the Kuramoto model

    Most of critical infrastructures (CIs) depend on the power system. The predictable onset of a microgeneration paradigm (many dispersed small generators of medium-low power) will considerably decrease network stability and thus increase risk of failures and other's infrastructures dependence. In order to study the stability of synchronisation in a power microgeneration scenario, we derive the ...

  • Coupling of neural network and dispersion models: a novel methodology for air pollution models

    Supervised neural net models and dispersion models are two important approaches for evaluating air pollution concentrations. The authors propose the development of an integrated model, in order to optimise the performances of each methodology. The concentrations evaluated by an air pollution model are coupled with a Neural Net (NN), so as to adjust the influence of important variables on ...

  • R&D networks: an evaluation framework

    R&D networks have been studied and promoted by scholars and policy makers as a way to increase the performance of innovation systems. At the same time, limited attention has been devoted to evaluate their performances. This paper reviews the literature that studied R&D networks from different approaches and suggests a framework to help developing evaluation systems for R&D networks. The ...

  • Supply project planning in a networked environment

    Multi-organisational technological projects are commonplace today. The means of cooperation between organisations varies. A common basis for interorganisational project planning is needed. Simo-2, developed at the Prosit 9 Virtual delivery project, is just such a tool. It is a distributed business simulation environment, which uses a product model-based approach for power plant deliveries. It ...
