The first large-scale mesoscopic dynamic traffic assignment model of Melbourne
DynaMel is a dynamic traffic assignment model and analysis tool to address complex and dynamic transportation operations and planning issues of Melbourne road network. It overcomes the limitations of traditional static assignment models by using advanced traffic modeling techniques to capture the dynamics of congestion formation and dissipation associated with time-dependent demand and network conditions. The model is developed in AIMSUN.
