“It’s time” in Vancouver – Is equity the key to resolving the paradox of mobility pricing?
Abstract: Pricing has long been a challenge for transport policy and planning. Incomplete or inefficient pricing mechanisms cause a wide range of suboptimal outcomes, e.g. congestion, pollution and unfunded infrastructure liabilities - aka road socialism. A fiscal paradox underlies the challenges to introduce more effective pricing of car use, which may help fund public and active transport. Increased fuel efficiency and the rise of alternative fuel (electricity/hydrogen) would further reduce fuel tax income. Attempts to introduce new fiscal instruments on mobility has been defeated multiple times in Vancouver - a vehicle levy in 2001 and a referendum for a transit surtax in 2015. In spite of the defeats, a renewed effort has just begun. The Independent Mobility Pricing Commission has been established in 2017 to investigate new mobility pricing schemes (such as distance-based vehicle charges and road pricing), with a publicity campaign – It’s Time (https://www.itstimemv.ca/). These initiatives offer unique opportunities to study the efforts to reprice urban mobility in a car-dominant urban region. This presentation provides the initial analysis of Vancouver’s latest attempt, with insights into the social and political barriers to acceptance of such schemes. Dr Abraham Leung is a postdoctoral research fellow in Griffith University's Cities Research Institute. His research focuses mainly on urban socio-spatial equity problems, with specific interests in public transport infrastructure value capture, mobility pricing, and fuel (oil) price vulnerability. As a key member of his university’s transport research team, he also provides research-based advice to industry partners under the Transport Academic Partnership (TAP) agreement with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads. He has recently won a Simon Fraser University/Griffith University Collaborative Travel Grant to research mobility pricing policy in Vancouver. (https://experts.griffith.edu.au/academic/abraham.leung)

iPhone dunk shows the magic of "wet" computing
New liquid-cooled Iceotope computer servers installed at the University of Leeds cuts energy used for cooling Internet servers by more than 80 percent. The whirring fans of traditional computers are replaced by the barely-audible trickle of liquid. The heat released can be piped out to radiators to warm a building. The developers say it could revolutionise the energy-hungry data centres that form the fabric of our online lives.But don't we all know that liquid and electronics don't mix? Dr Jon Summers, from the University of Leeds' School of Mechanical Engineering, shows what happens when you put an iPhone in a beaker of the secret ingredient: 3M (TM) Novec (TM) liquid. For more details on the Iceotope Servers at Leeds see: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/news/article/3374/ WARNING: The phone experiment shown in this video is intended to demonstrate the special qualities of the liquid used in the Iceotope server. Putting an electronic device in liquid can cause problems other than a short circuit. Liquid is likely to be trapped and may affect the functionality of the device (eg. screen dimming or ghosting, speaker problems).

IStructE Talk_12/12/2016
Dr Tsavdaridis (Associate Professor of Structural Engineer at the University of Leeds) has given a Talk at the Institution of Structural Engineers. Brief: Today, it is estimated that more than 35% of steel-framed buildings incorporate long spans in excess of 12m. In the 1990s the cellular beam, which replaced the castellated beam, gained prominence. Cellular beams are now estimated to have an 80% share of the long span beams in the UK market. There has been a lot of research on perforated beam webs with the geometry of the perforation ranging from circular, elongated, to non-standard shapes. However, very limited research has been found with regards the design limitations of seismic resistant connections when such perforated beams are used. Studies were conducted by FEMA and the SAC Joint Venture with reports ranging from FEMA-350 to 355F with main aim to develop reliable, practical and cost-effective design guidelines and specifications of reduced web opening (RBS) connections while do not include substantial reference to connections with the use of perforated beams (reduced web section – RWS connections). The presentation will discuss the up-to-date research work and propose design recommendations for RWS connections. The use of large isolated as well as periodically spaced perforations will be presented as an effective way of improving the behaviour of connections enhancing their ductility, rotational capacity and energy dissipation capacity.

Modelling the uptake of active travel: from infrastructure to behaviour change
Modelling the uptake of active travel: from infrastructure to behaviour change. Presentation by Dr Robin Lovelace & Dr Malcolm Morgan for the Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) Seminar Series www.its.leeds.ac.uk/about/events/seminar-series http://rpubs.com/RobinLovelace/335368 This talk provides an overview of the work that Robin Lovelace and Malcolm Morgan have been doing as part of their Department for Transport funded projects on the Propensity to Cycle Tool (PCT, which has become part of UK government policy in the Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Strategy) and follow-on work on the Cycling Infrastructure Prioritisation Toolkit (CyIPT). Although strong evidence shows that infrastructure usually precedes (and to some extent causes) behaviour change the starting point of the talk will be behaviour: how do people currently get around and how could it be different, based on the fundamentals of route distance and hilliness. Robin demonstrates the PCT in action, talks about the R package stplanr that he developed to develop it, and outline plans for a globally scalable transport planning toolkit that builds on the PCT work. Following this high-level overview, Malcolm zooms into the detail: How the CyIPT identifies the best places for infrastructure change and what that infrastructure should be. He also talks about the advanced programming techniques needed to process such complex geospatial network data at city to national levels.
