DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF SYNTHETIC GENERATION AND DISTRIBUTION MODELS FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION STUDIES

A PROCEDURE IS DEVELOPED FOR ESTIMATING INTERNAL TRIP MOVEMENTS WITHOUT INTERVIEW SURVEYS. A GENERALIZED TRIP GENERATION MODEL IS BASED ON ANALYSIS OF GENERATION CHARACTERISTICS OF EIGHT CITIES, THREE IN GEORGIA. A METHOD IS PROPOSED FOR DETERMINING GRAVITY MODEL TRAVEL TIME FACTORS BASED ON MAXIMUM TRIP LENGTH OVER THE TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT NETWORK. THE PROCEDURE IS EVALUATED BY TEST APPLICATION IN FOUR GEORGIA CITIES WITH SATISFACTORY DUPLICATION OF OBSERVED TRAFFIC VOLUMES. /AUTHOR/
