A Simulation Approach for Examining Designed Truck Terminal Operations for Forecasted Demand at Busy Sea Port

The research work is carried out with an objective of testing operational performance of a designed truck parking system by means of a traffic microscopic simulation using VISSIM, before execution in field conditions. With the help of designed parking terminal and the predicted parking demand, the entire parking network is modelled by using VISSIM 8.0 software. Based on this simulation model, different scenarios are generated by means of varying demand (different traffic volumes/arrival rates) and supply (parking duration) at different levels. These scenarios majorly include variations in arrival of vehicles with uniform arrival rate at different traffic volumes, uniform estimated traffic volume at different arrival rates and change in parking duration from the estimated design duration. Based on this the functional efficiency over different scenarios are evaluated by means of different parking indices.
