On 24 May 2018, TRAIL PhD researcherJeroen van der Gun will defend his PhD thesis ‘Multimodal Transportation Simulation for Emergencies using the Link Transmission Model’ at Delft University of Technology.
At 12:30 h the public defence starts in the Senaatszaal of the Aula. At 12:00 h Jeroen will give a brief presentation about his research in the same room.
Emergencies disrupting urban transportation systems cause management problems for authorities. This thesis develops simulation methods that permit analysis thereof and evaluation of candidate management plans, tested in three case studies. It formulates a methodological framework using agent-based choice models and multimodal macroscopic dynamic network loading models, and develops extensions of the Link Transmission Model to deal with more complex and variable fundamental diagrams and initially non-empty roads.
