ANALYSIS OF TRANSPORTATION AND AIR QUALITY COMPUTER MODELS TO DETERMINE FEASIBILITY OF CREATING A COMPREHENSIVE MODEL
The first objective of the project was to discover and document links between a family of emission models and a transportation demand management (TDM) model. The models were investigated for their candidacy to be used for a larger comprehensive computer model. The second objective is to show how TDM strategies affect air quality. The computer models are: MOBILE, TDM, VARIM, and VACAL. The project involved gathering information for each model, investigating links, running the models, simulating a test case of an urban area, and finally documenting the work. The results of the project revealed that the main link of the models was traffic volume in units of vehicles per hour.
