  • Dynamic modelling of transient emissions and concentrations from traffic in street canyons

    In the EU 5th framework project DECADE (2001–2003), a new methodology has been developed to calculate in detail the engine power required to drive a given vehicle over any particular route. It includes the rapidly changing (transient) demands placed on the engine, an area that has proved an obstacle to accurate simulations in the past. Together with the associated speed profiles, the actual power ...

  • Diesel Spill on Roadway

    Diesel Spill on Roadway. A tractor trailer truck with a damaged saddle tank spilled 75+ gallons of diesel on frontage road of I-35 in Oklahoma City. After using Aqua N-Cap™ to absorb the pooled diesel, TERRACAP 3000/4000 additives were applied to the spill areas including a 2 foot wide by 100 yard long strip of roadway where diesel had soaked into the asphalt. Once the TERRACAP 3000 was ...


  • Analysis of the impacts of an environmental traffic management system on vehicle emissions and air quality

    Environmental traffic management systems (ETMS) are implemented to improve air quality in urban streets. They allow for a situation-related control of light signal systems to optimise road capacities and enhance traffic flow in street sections. Therefore, they are equipped with mitigation strategies and continuously provided with traffic and air quality data. In this context, it is ...
