Simulation Foundations, Methods and Applications

Introduction to Transportation Analysis, Modeling and Simulation

Computational Foundations and Multimodal Applications

Authors: Möller, Dietmar P.F.

  • Introduces an inter- and multi-modal transportation systems analysis, modeling and simulation based on the continuous-time, discrete-time, and mixed mode modeling and simulation paradigms
  • Presents research-oriented use cases from granted projects showing how to solve real-world transportation systems sector problems
  • Suitable both for self-study and as a use case reference, for job training programs or in graduate schools

About this Textbook

This comprehensive textbook/reference provides an in-depth overview of the key aspects of transportation analysis, with an emphasis on modeling real transportation systems and executing the models. Topics and features: presents comprehensive review questions at the end of each chapter, together with detailed case studies, useful links, references and suggestions for further reading; supplies a variety of teaching support materials at the book’s webpage on Springer.com, including a complete set of lecture slides; examines the classification of models used for multimodal transportation systems, and reviews the models and evaluation methods used in transportation planning; explains traffic assignment to road networks, and describes computer simulation integration platforms and their use in the transportation systems sector; provides an overview of transportation simulation tools, and discusses the critical issues in the design, development and use of the simulation models.
