qSchedule-Based Modeling of Transportation Networks: Theory and Applicationsq follows the book Schedule-Based Dynamic Transit Modeling, published in this series in 2004, recognizing the critical role that schedules play in transportation systems. Conceived for the simulation of transit systems, in the last few years the schedule-based approach has been expanded and applied to operational planning of other transportation schedule services besides mass transit, e.g. freight transport. This innovative approach allows forecasting the evolution over time of the on-board loads on the services and their time-varying performance, using credible user behavioral hypotheses. It opens new frontiers in transportation modeling to support network design, timetable setting, and investigation of congestion effects, as well as the assessment of such new technologies, such as users system information (ITS technologies).As defined (Nuzzolo and Crisalli, 2004), the schedule-based approach requires explicit treatment for: a€c time-dependent segmentation of origin/destination matrix, as usera#39;s departure or arrival target time distribution has to be ... In the literature, there are three main run-based representations of transit services: the diachronic network (Nuzzolo and Russo, 1993, 1994), also referred to time-expandedanbsp;...
