Lernziele: 

The students understand the main characteristics of various transport systems and modes, including slow modes, car, public transport, inland waterways and air transport. They are familiar with the fundamental concepts of transport planning and modelling considering the specific situation in developing countries.

 

Inhalte: 

The lectures and exercises cover the following topics:

  • introduction to transportation planning
  • transportation planning process
  • data collection and surveys
  • land use and travel demand
  • travel demand forecasts
  • trip distribution and mode choice
  • traffic assignment and supply analysis
  • road network planning
  •  public transport planning
  • railway planning (special aspects of railway transport, structure of tracks, planning of routes)
  • railway operation (basic terms of railway operation, basics of spacing trains, determination of capacity, aspects of scheduling)
  • inland waterways (special aspects of inland navigation, structure of waterways, planning of waterways)
  • airports (special aspects of aviation, structure of aerodromes, planning of airports)
  • transport policy concepts

The exercises on transport modelling introduce the students to
software for travel demand forecasting models:

  • building a network model (nodes, links, public transport lines, centroids),
  • calculating indicator matrices (skims) describing the service quality,
  • trip generation from land-use data,
  • trip distribution and mode choice,
  • assignment for private and public transport,
  • methods to analyse a transport network (node flows, selected link analysis),
  • data transfer to and from GIS via shapefiles.
