An Origin-Based Algorithm for a Combined Distribution, Hierarchical Mode Choice, and Assignment Network Model Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this study, an origin-based (OB) algorithm is further studied to solve a combined distribution, hierarchical mode choice, and assignment network model (CDHMCAN), where the trip distribution follows a gravity model, the mode choice follows aggregate hierarchical logit structures, and the traffic assignment is a user equilibrium model. The combined model will be first formulated as an optimization model with single user and multiple mode classes, and an equivalent mathematical program is presented. Then, the proposed OB algorithm for the program is given.
