Strengthening the resiliency of the coastal transportation system through integrated simulation of storm surge, inundation, and non-recurrent congestion in Northeast Florida

In this study, the Multimodal Transportation Educational Virtual Appliance (MTEVA) (developed as part of CMS #2009-010) has been advanced to apply storm surge and evacuation models to the greater Jacksonville area of Northeast Florida. Heuristic and time dynamic algorithms have been enhanced to work with the significantly larger network. Like the existing MTEVA, users are presented with graphical user interfaces to a modeling system which couples a storm surge and inundation model with congestion models for emergency situations. However, in the enhanced MTEVA, these interfaces are built with standards-compliant web services and hosted using a THREDDS Data Server (TDS). The Northeast Florida domain is developed using high resolution State of Florida LiDar data and the transportation network is based on the Northeast Florida Regionally Planning Model (NERPM).
