OPTIMAL DESIGN OF TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS WITH FLUCTUATING DEMANDS. A CASE IN MULTICOMMODITY NETWORKS FLOWS

The problem of designing a transportation network that will best satisfy expected demand for travel among a given set of centers of activity is formulated by identifying for each origin-destination pair, called a commodity of the transportation network, all the alternative routes for travel that meet prespecified criteria and which constitute the set of feasible paths. Modal choice is assumed to be a function of travel time and consequently the model generates expected demands for travel, over alternative routes of different length, from a probability distribution function of travel time associated with each origin-destination pair.
