CHARACTERISTIC VALUES AND METHODS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF BASE LOCATIONS WHICH ARE FAVOURABLE FROM TRANSPORTATION ASPECTS - A STUDY

KENNWERTE UND VERFAHREN ZUR BESTIMMUNG VERKEHRLICH GUENSTIGER STANDORTE - STUDIE

USING THE PROGRAM PACKAGE VPB FROM THE ZEIV (BUREAU) OVER 100 TRAFFIC NETWORK ANALYSES ARE CARRIED OUT EVERY YEAR FOR ABOUT 15 TO 20 CITIES IN THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC. THESE ANALYSES FORM AN INDEPENDENT BASIS FOR SETTING UP GENERAL TRANSPORTATION PLANS. THE TREND IS TOWARDS AN INCREASING NUMBER OF ANALYSES CARRIED OUT YEARLY AS TRANSPORTATION PLANNING OFFICES AIM INCREASINGLY AT PRODUCING SYSTEMATIC VARIATION ANALYSES FOR STRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT AND/OR FOR THEIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. IN THE PREVIOUS PAPER A SURVEY OF POSSIBLE CHARACTERISTIC VALUES IS GIVEN WHICH CAN BE OBTAINED FROM TRAFFIC NETWORK ANALYSES. THESE CHARACTERISTIC VALUES ARE IDENTIFIED AS STATISTICAL COEFFICIENTS FOR TRAFFIC CHARACTERISTICS OBTAINED FROM COST MATRICES (CHARACTERISTIC VALUE) AND IMPORTANCE MATRICES (APPROPRIATE FREQUENCY VALUE). A CLASSIFICATION OF THE CHARACTERISTIC VALUES IS GIVEN WITH RESPECT TO THE SIGNIFICANCE FOR TRAFFIC ENGINEERING OF THE COST - AND IMPORTANCE MATRICES. A NEW METHOD IS RECOMMENDED FOR MAKING ECONOMIES IN THE EXPENSIVE TRAFFIC NETWORK ANALYSIS FOR SYSTEMATIC VARIABLES INVESTIGATIONS. THE METHOD IS COMMENCED USING A VERIFICATION MATRIX WITH STANDARDIZED ORIGIN - AND DESTINATION INDICES. THE NETWORK VERIFICATION OF A VARIABLE CAN BE ECONOMICALLY AND RAPIDLY EVALUATED BY MATRIX MULTIPLICATION OF THE VERIFICATION MATRIX WITH A MULTIPLICATION VECTOR. FOR EVALUATING CHARACTERISTIC VALUES FOR SPECIAL BASE LOCATIONS AND FOR THE ORIGIN-ORIENTATED VERIFICATION MATRICES, IT IS NECESSARY THAT, IN ADDITION TO THE DESTINATION-ORIENTATED SEARCH ALGORITHMS FOR K BEST ROUTE, ORIGIN-ORIENTATED SEARCH ALGORITHMS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE.
