  2. 2. Modelling and Appraisal in Congested Transport Networks

    Author : Jens West; Maria Börjesson; Oded Cats; Leonid Engelsson; Giulio Cantarella; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transport modelling; Transit Assignment; Appraisal; Congestion; Crowding; Cost-benefit analysis; Value of time; Congestion charge; Dynamic traffic assignment; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;
