PROBLEMS OF FREIGHT TRAIN TRANSITABILITY--SUBSTANTIATION OF METHOD, CALCULATION AND ALGORITHM

The possibility of using the principles of the mathematical method of dynamic programming to calculate the increase in transitability is shown with a model calculation based on incrementing the capacity of car streams from origins and ensuring the arrival of these streams at destination with a maximum proportion of through (transit) trains. An algorithm has been compiled for the EC type computer and a Fortran oriented program. Data of the effectiveness of the proposed calculation is given which along with existing methods enables the available potential of transitability of car flows to be realized on a new basis.
