A SIMULATION MODEL OF FREIGHT TRANSPORT SYSTEM

A computer simulation model has been developed to evaluate transportation strategies over an arbitrary network. This model consists of the Basic Network and the Macro Yard. Macro Yard is modeled to predict yard performance; details of this model and its simulation program (SIMSCRIPT) are described first. To validate this model, simulation freight movement over the Tokaido Line was performed. It consists of 8 yards with 12,000 cars being handled in the model. Further application of this model to study the dynamic stability of the network is discussed and simulated results are explained.
