Автор: V. Profillidis
Название книги: Modeling of Transport Demand
Качество: Изначально компьютерное, E-book
Modeling of Transport Demand explains the mechanisms of transport demand, from analysis to calculation and
forecasting. Packed with strategies for forecasting future demand for all transport modes, the book helps readers
assess the validity and accuracy of demand forecasts.
Forecasting and evaluating transport demand is an essential task of transport professionals and researchers
that affects the design, extension, operation, and maintenance of all transport infrastructures. Accurate demand
forecasts are necessary for companies and government entities when planning future fleet size, human resource
needs, revenues, expenses, and budgets. The operational and planning skills provided in Modeling of Transport
Demand help readers solve the problems they face on a daily basis.
Modeling of Transport Demand is written for researchers, professionals, undergraduate and graduate students
at every stage in their careers, from novice to expert. The book assists those tasked with constructing qualitative
models (based on executive judgment, Delphi, scenario writing, survey methods) or quantitative ones (based on
statistical, time series, econometric, gravity, artificial neural network, and fuzzy methods) in choosing the most
suitable solution for all types of transport applications.
Presents the most recent and relevant findings and research — both at theoretical and practical levels — of transport demand
Provides a theoretical analysis and formulations that are clearly presented for ease of understanding
Covers analysis for all modes of transportation
Includes case studies that present the most appropriate formulas and methods for finding solutions and evaluating results
