Abstract

In this paper a general framework is presented with specific methods and models for analysing urban road transportation performance in emergency conditions when exogenous phenomena occur. In the paper a global procedure and subsystem for analysing supply, demand and demand-supply interaction are proposed. The global procedure was tested in three different real areas hypothesising that an event occurs and there is a temporal gap between cause and effect on the population. In this temporal gap all or some of the population have to be evacuated. The obtained results confirm the goodness of procedure and highlight some aspects that need to develop. 1 Introduction Methodologies for transportation planning in urban area when exogenous events occur and/or in emergency conditions have not received great attention in the li
