Projects and articles of Filip Vanhove
ResearcherFilip Vanhove is Master in Civil Engineering. In his Master’s thesis, an analysis was made of the Parkpoort crossroads using the micro simulation model Aimsun2. Later on, he completed a number of projects using Paramics, including the analysis of dynamic traffic management. He also has experience with macroscopic traffic models, amongst others for the computation of emissions of air pollutants and for noise calculations. Through the development and compilation of statistics, he gained a thorough knowledge of the traffic situation on the Belgian motorway network and learned how to handle large amounts of data. Recently he is mainly working on emission modelling of road traffic, inland shipping, maritime transport, rail and aviation.
