Summer series. Students' projects (4/8) – For her semester project, civil engineering student Chloé Lafaye designed and ran a series of simulations to model how train delays propagate down a rail line and compare the two generations of train signaling systems used in Switzerland. https://go.epfl.ch/yqkpB
