NEW TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT METHOD ON CIRCUIT THEORY FOR URBAN PLANNING

IN terms of the similarity between a road network and a circuit network, this paper demonstrates that Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws observed in the circuit can be employed in the traffic assignment of the road network. Inspired by the more consummate circuit theory, the paper puts forward a new idea and method for traffic assignment. A set of models is formulated by means of multiobjective nonlinear planning theory, and the solutions are found using MATLAB. An example is provided to prove the feasibility of the new traffic assignment model.
