Abstract

Microscopic approach for the evaluation of an urban transport system in emergency conditions G. Musolino & A. Vitetta Department of Compzr/er Science, Mathematics, Electronics and Transportation, Mediterranea University of'Reggio Cduhria, Italy. Abstract The paper presents some traffic microscopic models and procedures for the analysis and management of a road transportation system, when an evacuation of a densely populated area has to be planned, due to a forthcoming calamitous evcnt. In the sphere of Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA), the microscopic approach allows a disaggregate analysis of each driver behaviour in term of spccd and acceleration and the simulation of queuing and lane-changing phenomena; but it needs high computation times for extended transportation networks analysis and large amount of data for the behavioural rules definition. 1 Introduction The aim of this work is the analysis and the management of a road transportation system by means of traffic ~nicroscopic models an
