14. Exercise using commercial transport modelling software (Omnitrans) in setting up a modelling analysis, and assessing a transport system and solution strategies
Study Goals: 1. Identify and describe the main components of transportation and land use models
2. Apply and discuss the main modelling techniques for the components of the four (five) stage transportation model
3. Analyse and discuss today"s transportation and land use models
4. Set-up and perform a systematic modelling analysis to assess a transportation system and solution strategies
Education Method: Lectures, exercises, practical
Literature and Study Materials: Obligatory lecture note(s)/textbook(s):
1. Ortuzar, J. de Dios, L.G. Willumsen (2011) Modelling transport
4th edition, John Wiley & Sons, Chichester
2. Selected papers on Spatial Modelling, references will be provided
3. Manual of exercises in Omnitrans
Obligatory other materials:
Transparencies and other material on Blackboard
Assessment: Written exam (open questions, closed book) and practical with written report
Remarks: The individual exercise must be completed and the deadline for handing in the report is week 7. The exercise grade will remain valid for a maximum of 18 months.
NB: In case the exercises are not completed in time, one will not be allowed to make the final written exam.
Judgement: Written exam (75%) + written report about exercise (25%)
