Diverse effective strategies have been designed to minimize the phenomenon of urban sprawl. Previous research focused on the link between spatial and transport development strategies to achieve this goal, with the intention of increasing mobility, reducing commuting time and travel costs. However, a side effect of urban sprawl is an increase of...

An essential feature in many dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) models used for planning purposes is to compute the (dynamic) equilibrium assignment, where travellers follow user-optimal routes, leading to minimal experienced route travel times. To compute these time-varying route flows in the equilibrium assignment, an iterative procedure is...

Instructing evacuees on their departure time, destination, and route can lead to more efficient evacuation traffic operations. While current evacuation plan optimization techniques are limited to assessing mandatory evacuation where travelers strictly follow the instructions, in reality a share of travelers likely decides not to comply. Here we...

There are many kinds of disasters that can severely impact the transportation system of an urbanized region. Transportation authorities therefore need to develop management strategies to adequately deal with such emergencies. In this paper, we discuss the structure of a simulation model that can be used to assess a candidate strategy. We model...

Earlier studies have shown how driving behaviour during emergency evacuation is different from that under “normal” conditions. At the same time, most evacuation studies (where the driving performance is explicitly accounted for) were conducted under the assumption of a fully activated emergency environment. However, the transition phase in...

Traffic flow in many developing countries is strongly mixed comprising vehicle types, such as motorcycles, cars, (mini) buses, and trucks; furthermore, traffic flow typically exhibits free inter-lane exchanges. This phenomenon causes a complex vehicle interaction, rendering most existing traffic flow modeling approaches insufficient and...

Paper + lecture. Many possible emergency conditions, including evacuations, negatively affect the urban transportation system by substantially increasing the travel demand and/or reducing the supplied capacity. We develop a new, general and efficient methodology suitable for simulating multimodal transportation systems subject to a wide range of...

Current procedure in travel demand estimation models is to separately deal with attraction, production and trip distribution, where the latter typically assumes inverse distance proportionality. We show that this procedure leads to errors in the demand estimation, particularly when dealing with very specific zones and heterogeneous travel...

In this paper an evacuation simulation model is proposed, combining a dynamic travel demand component, an adaptive travel choice behavior component, and a dynamic network loading component. The travel demand component considers the primary choice facing the endangered residents, whether to participate in the evacuation, and if so, when to depart...

A method is described to develop a set of optimal instructions to evacuate by car the population of a region threatened by a hazard. By giving these instructions to the evacuees, traffic conditions and therefore the evacuation efficiency can be optimized. The instructions, containing a departure time, a destination, and a route, are created...

In the aim for a more sustainable transport system, governments try to stimulate multimodal trip making by facilitating smooth transfers between modes. The assessment of related multimodal policy measures requires transport models that are capable of handling the complex nature of multimodality. This complexity sets requirements for adequate...

A matrix estimation method using the semi dynamic assignment model STAQ is developed exploiting its methodological advantages over full DTA models. The matrix estimation problem is formulated as a bi-level problem and is solved on the node level taking flow metering into account. In the lower level the method uses marginal simulation of the node...

While agent-based modelling of traffic demand is gaining attention, a macroscopic dynamic network loading model may be beneficial, particularly in large-scale applications. We investigate the implications of coupling such models, with inclusion of en-route choices, for the modelling of links and the determination of turning fractions, yielding...

Kinematic wave theory consists of two main equations: the conservation of vehicles and the equilibrium flow-density relationship. Assuming that each traffic state along a road at each point in time is an equilibrium state, these combine into a single partial differential equation for the propagation of traffic along a network link. Newell (1993)...

Metro disruptions due to unexpected events reduce transit system reliability, resulting in significant productivity loss and long passenger delays. Bus bridging strategy is often used to connect stations affected by metro disruptions such that passengers could continue their journey. The literature usually designed bridging routes and then...
