Meso, hybrid, macro

June 10-11

This course zooms out from microscopic simulation to look at larger scale modeling. You’ll learn about the event-based mesoscopic model and how to combine it with a more detailed time-sliced microsimulator.

Then you’ll get to experiment with static macroscopic modelling, which is often used as a preliminary step to dynamic modeling to extract the demand of a subarea from a regional model, to adjust and time-slice it, and to get an initial set of paths to warm-start dynamic assignment.

Day 1

Mesoscopic network loading

Mesoscopic vehicle behavior

Calibration of a mesoscopic model

Hybrid microscopic-mesoscopic simulation

Day 2

Macroscopic modeling

Static traffic assignment

Traversal demand calculation

Demand adjustment
