Michael van Eggermond: Katalogdaten im Herbstsemester 2020
|Name||Herr Dr. Michael van Eggermond|
|Departement||Bau, Umwelt und Geomatik|
|101-0417-00L||Transport Planning Methods||6 KP||4G||A. Erath Rusterholtz, M. van Eggermond|
|Kurzbeschreibung||The course provides the necessary knowledge to develop models supporting and also evaluating the solution of given planning problems. |
The course is composed of a lecture part, providing the theoretical knowledge, and an applied part in which students develop their own models in order to evaluate a transport project/ policy by means of cost-benefit analysis.
|Lernziel||- Knowledge and understanding of statistical methods and algorithms commonly used in transport planning|
- Comprehend the reasoning and capabilities of transport models
- Ability to independently develop a transport model able to solve / answer planning problem
- Getting familiar with cost-benefit analysis as a decision-making supporting tool
|Inhalt||The course provides the necessary knowledge to develop models supporting the solution of given planning problems and also introduces cost-benefit analysis as a decision-making tool. Examples of such planning problems are the estimation of traffic volumes, prediction of estimated utilization of new public transport lines, and evaluation of effects (e.g. change in emissions of a city) triggered by building new infrastructure and changes to operational regulations.|
To cope with that, the problem is divided into sub-problems, which are solved using various statistical models (e.g. regression, discrete choice analysis) and algorithms (e.g. iterative proportional fitting, shortest path algorithms, method of successive averages).
The course is composed of a lecture part, providing the theoretical knowledge, and an applied part in which students develop their own models in order to evaluate a transport project/ policy by means of cost-benefit analysis. Interim lab session take place regularly to guide and support students with the applied part of the course.
