      A heuristic solution for the empty container substitution problem 

      Chang, H.; Jula, H.; Chassiakos, Anastassios; Ioannou, Petros A. (2008)
      This paper studies substitution between empty containers of different types in an attempt to reduce the cost of empty container interchange. Since finding an optimal solution requires substantial computational efforts, a ...

      An integrated roadway controller and its evaluation by microscopic simulator VISSIM 

      Chang, H.; Wang, Y.; Zhang, J.; Ioannou, Petros A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2015)
      A roadway control system that integrates variable speed limits and ramp metering is designed to relieve congestion, suppress shock waves and improve safety on a freeway stretch. The speed control design is only based on ...

      A simple roadway control system for freeway traffic 

      Zhang, J.; Chang, H.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2006)
      In this paper, a roadway control system that regulates variable speed limits along the freeway in addition to ramp metering is proposed to counteract traffic congestion and improve freeway efficiency. It treats the speed ...

      The use of microscopic traffic simulation model for traffic control systems 

      Chang, H.; Wang, Y.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2007)
      A highway network model is constructed using a microscopic traffic flow simulation model, VISSIM, and is intended to provide an evaluation environment for advanced traffic control systems. Since the microscopic traffic ...
