M. Lamers De transportverliesfactor als vorm van het specifieke energiegebruik van transportmiddelen.
Literature survey, Report 2005.TL.6950, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

The loss factor of transport is the ratio between the mechanical energy which is necessary for overcoming friction during the transport on one hand and the transport performance on the other hand. For means of transport this is a simple and useful expression to compare the required energy. In this report much attention is given to the way in which the loss factor of transport has been calculated for the different means of transport.
