THE PROBLEM OF THE MASS EFFECT ON THE RESISTANCE FUNCTIONS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF TRAFFIC DISTRIBUTION

DAS PROBLEM DER MASSENWIRKUNG AUF DIE WIDERSTANDSFUNKTIONEN IM RAHMEN DER VERKEHRSVERTEILUNG

THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO CARRY OUT INTEGRATED RESEARCH TO DETERMINE: (1) THE "MASS" IN THE URBAN TRAFFIC STRUCTURE; (2) THE RESISTANCE FUNCTION IN THE FORM OF "EFFECTIVE DISTANCE"; (3) THE BEHAVIOURAL PARAMETER "RESISTANCE FUNCTION"; (4) DISTRIBUTION TAKING ACCOUNT OF COMPONENTS FROM 1 TO 3 AND THE COMPETITIVE SITUATION.

THE RESEARCH IS EXPECTED TO HIGHLIGHT THE USE OF MODELS IN PARTICULAR FOR EVALUATING CAPACITY AND THE POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF ALTERNATIVE TRAFFIC CONCEPTS.
