transportation; determination of the number of trains by criterion of minimum direct operating costs for transportation of each variant scheme using linear optimization model; application of AHP method to define the weights of criteria and ranking the variants schemes; and selection of an optimal transport plan according to the criterion of a minimum ratio of normalized direct operating costs to the AHP score. The methodology was experimented in Bulgarian railway network.

The AHP method(Analytic Hierarchy Process), as a part of the Multi Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) process, is one of the most used methods worldwide for dealing with the complexity of transport project evaluation. A level crossing (LC) is a place where road and rail cross. Therefore, LC is a place where there isa high risk of accidents.The aimof this study is to develop an AHP model for evaluating the alternatives for the reconstruction of LC in a congested urban environment through the

The aim of this study was to use AHP method to analyze seven types of windows in terms of cost-effectiveness of their designing in building partitions. The analysis referred to price as well as thermal and acoustic insulation for various construction and material solutions of window glazing. Using the analysis it was verified what windows are profitable to be used for various structural solutions in the existing buildings and how the thermal and acoustic coefficient is shaped at given

. The next part concerns the compact city indicators, and attention is paid primarily to the practical feasibility of their implementation and the availability of necessary data. Then, using the AHP method, an exemplary set of weights is estimated. The last part of the paper presents the main conclusions of the conducted analyses, as well as future potential directions of research. This paper complements (in the context of the main assumptions of compact city) and develops selected topics (in the

categories of criteria (vitally important criteria (C1), very important criteria (C2), important criteria (C3) and less important criteria (C4), using the AHP method, were compared by the experts to define their weights. This paper summarizes and extends the recent literature through a six-step methodological approach and proposes a new classification system of selection criteria.
