TRAFFIC FLOW ON TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS

Advantages and limitations of network analysis applied to transportation problems are explained. In particular, various issues that are relevant to traffic assignment problems are discussed and analysed. Given the rates at which travellers make trips between origins and destinations, the manner in which traffic distributes itself over a network and how this distribution depends on the geometry of the network is examined. The book also discusses conventional mathematical preliminaries to formulating and solving the problems of network analysis. It also places emphasis on evaluating traffic flows by analytic methods applied to idealised networks to illustrate how flow depends on certain geometrical properties of the network. (TRRL)
