This paper discusses the properties of capacity restraint assignments in traffic analysis when only one travel time function is assumed on each link of the network, the capacity of a link being defined as the maximum permissible flow on that link. Two types of assignment criteria are dealt with: (a) individual optimum assignment, in which the travel times on all used routes are equal to one another, and are not greater than the travel time which would be experienced by a single driver on any unused route: this can be formulated as a game theory problem; (b) network optimum assignment, in which the total travel time spent by all the vehicles in the network is minimised: this can be formulated as a non-linear programming problem. The properties of individual optimum assignments are considered under asymptotic capacity restraint conditions and under cut-off capacity restraint conditions. /TRRL/
