DYNAMIC ASSIGNMENT MODELS FOR CONTROL STRATEGY

This paper describes a stochastic doubly dynamic traffic assignment model for traffic control strategy evaluation. It simulates the effects upon traffic and/or travel time of network modifications. It can also be used to investigate the role of habit in users' choice of route, and the effects upon congestion of either driver information systems or traffic control strategies. The general structure of the model is described first. This includes a description of the user behaviour model and the dynamic network loading model. Some numerical examples are provided where the model is used to simulate the effects of different traffic control measures. These include the effects of flexible working times and a trip planning information system. For the covering abstract see IRRD 867248.
