Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA)

Session 1 introduces the concept and characteristics of dynamic traffic assignment and discusses how DTA offers an opportunity to supplement macroscopic travel demand model and microscopic traffic simulation model to address a variety of modeling challenges. Session 2 provides an overview of several studies, emphasizing why a DTA approach was pursued, observations, and lessons learned over the course of the study. Session 3 and Session 4 cover topics such as initial model preparation, data collection, modeling validation and calibration, computation time, modeling outputs and post-processing, communication and feedback from project sponsors, etc.
