TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS

Three network models used in transportation system analysis are described. These are: a) the traffic assignment model which routes traffic through a congested network according to one of two optimization schemes, b) an optimal network improvement model which improves link so as to minimize total travel time within a fixed investment budget, c) a model which optimizes network improvements over time. Solution techniques, which include decomposition and nonlinear programming algorithms, are discussed.
