A PRACTICAL DYNAMIC NETWORK EQUILIBRIUM MODEL WITH ELASTIC DEMAND. TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORT POLICY BETWEEN RURAL AND URBAN AREA, TO AN INTEGRAL APPROACH ON REGIONAL LEVEL. TRANSPORTATION PLANNING COLLOQUIUM 1989, THE HAGUE, NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 1, 1989. VOLUME II

This paper describes a practical dynamic equilibrium model for simulating car traffic in congested highway networks. The model consists of two main components: an assignment model and a departure time choice model. The assignment model is an improved version of the 3-dimensional assignment in time and space by hamerslag, now capable of performing equilibrium assignments. The departure time choice model has been adapted from a model by ben-akiva, and has been entered into the equilibrium loop. This paper describes the main characteristics and innovations to both model components, and presents some results of the simulation model. The following topics are covered: (a) fixed versus elastic departure time choice; (b) different weighting factors in the assignment; and (c) different parameter values in the departure time choice model. Finally some conclusiosn are given regarding the development and application of the model. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 825702.
