TRANSOP MODEL METHODOLOGY

The TRANSOP computer program was developed in order to assist in the determination of transportation equilibrium supply and demand levels for the Northeast Corridor Transportation Project. The program is built upon a proprietary optimization and simultaneous equation-solving algorithm (SLANG) developed by TRW Systems Group. Applications of the TRANSOP program have included investigation of the competitive position of ground modes such as high speed rail, tracked air cushion vehicles, and tube vehicle systems. The program has also been utilized to examine similar systems in other U. S. corridors. (Author)
