TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT RESEARCH

RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO EVALUATE THE ABILITY OF MIT'S INCREMENTAL ASSIGNMENT PROGRAM TO SIMULATE TRAFFIC PATTERNS. TRIP DATA AND TRAFFIC COUNTS WERE PROCESSED AS A PART OF THE PREPARATORY PHASE. SEVERAL OTHER TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT METHODS WERE ALSO TESTED AND COMPARED WITH MIT'S PROCEDURE. IN GENERAL, THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THE VARIOUS PROCEDURES WERE NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT. THERE ARE ALSO DISCUSSIONS OF TOPICS SUCH AS LOADING NETWORKS BY VERY SMALL TIME INCREMENTS AND MATRIX METHODS OF FINDING MINIMUM PATHS. /BPR/
