The objective of the course is to provide analytical tools for those students interested in majoring in transportation engineering to analyze the transport systems.
Development of transportation demand and supply models. Analysis of cost functions, cost estimating methods and some general cost function. Merging supply and demand models for network equilibration. Simulation and optimizing approaches for equilibrium. Evaluation of alternative transportation systems. Transport regulation in an inefficient or in an excessive competitive environment. Cost and demand conditions of a regulated industry.
The students would enable to analyze any passenger and freight transport system by considering the demand and the supply sides to achieve an equilibrated network so that the system could be operated in an efficient an economical environment.
