Training course

Thursday 12th November, Sydney, 09:00-17:30

This course is titled Working with demand and paths in Aimsun 8.1 and is all about using new functions in Aimsun 8.1 to get the most you possibly can out of integrated modelling.

The course will guide you through the methodology and techniques for calibrating the base traffic demand (using static OD adjustment, departure time adjustment and dynamic OD adjustment) and to calculate the base equilibrium paths (using dynamic user equilibrium with incremental load)

The course will then show you how to code the future scenario (using geometry configurations) and see how the changes affect the path assignment (using APA fixer and continuing the DUE).

Detailed course contents

The training course will be held at Saxons Training Centre located in Sydney city centre: Level 10 10 Barrack Street Sydney NSW 2000
