Description

Dynamics and Stochasticity in Transportation Systems: Solutions for Transportation Network Modeling breaks new ground on the topics, providing consistent and comprehensive coverage of steady state equilibrium and dynamic assignment within a common strategy. The book details the most recent advances in network assignment, including day-to-day and within-day dynamics, providing a solid foundation to help transportation planners solve transient overload and other problems. Users will find a book that fills the gap in knowledge with its description on how to use and employ the latest dynamic network models for evaluation of traffic and transport demand interventions.

This book demystifies the many different dynamic traffic assignment approaches and requires no previous knowledge on the part of the reader. All results are fully described and proven, thus eliminating the need to seek out other references. The skills described will appeal to transportation professionals, researchers and graduate students alike.

Key Features

  • Presents a consistent and comprehensive theory on steady state equilibrium assignment and day-to-day dynamic assignment models within a common framework
  • Describes and solves modeling calculations in detail, with no need to reference other sources
  • Includes numerical and graphical examples, text boxes and summaries at the end of each chapter to help readers better understand theoretical components
  • Includes primary mathematical tools necessary for each dynamic model, easing comprehension

Readership

1. Transportation professionals and researchers involved with modeling, planning, feasibility studies, funding, and policy for transportation 2. High-level undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in social sciences transportation programs 3. Government researchers and policy makers responsible for international logistics employed at state and federal departments of transportation
