Abstract

In this paper a transport system in a case of evacuation is studied by using the traditional methodologies of the static analysis of the transport systems, by verifying its compatibility and effectiveness under conditions of performance to the limit of saturation and by looking for an approach including an analysis which is not so different from the static one. This methodology, called pseudo-dynamic methodology, allows the overcoming of those limits the static analysis sets when it is applied to the study of a phenomenon having a natural dynamic. 1 Introduction The problem to verify the performance of a transport system, in case the general mobilization becomes necessary in a city or an area including various urban
