Mathematical Optimization Models for Determination of Optimal Vertical Alignment
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 12, issue 3, 1994, Pages 5~13
In the fields of rail and road design, most vertical alignment design have been thus far heavily dependent upon trial-and-errors of experienced engineers. However, it has long been inefficient in productivity of designing process. In order to overcome this inefficiency, this paper presents the optimal vertical alignment design method using mathematical optimization techniques. For optimization, mathematical model to minimize the construction cost is formulated and the separable programming technique and the Zoutendijk method are introduced to solve it. As result, it is shown that this optimization technique can give efficient solutions to all vertical alignment design fields with properly-estimated cost function.
Capacity Model for Terminal Control Area
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 12, issue 3, 1994, Pages 15~27
A mathematical model and its solution algorithm are proposed for computing the capacity of terminal control area. The model is built based on dynamics of aircraft flying on pre-established approach path and its solution algorithm employs a numerical method. The model computes the minimum separation of two aircraft at the entry fix of the terminal control area, which assures that air traffic separation rules are not violated during the approach phase, thereby computes the capacity. The model might be applied for designing approach paths for a new airport, for rearranging paths of an existing airport or establishing approach control procedures.
A Study on the Determination of Optimum L.R.T Route from the Viewpoint of Revenue Maimization Principles
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 12, issue 3, 1994, Pages 29~47
Although subway system continues to be the backbone of transportation systems in a city like Seoul, there will still be areas across the city where subway services are not avaliable. Interest has steadily grown to fill this missing routes in overall urban transportation system. Light Rail Transit (L.R.T) system has been recently thought to be an appropriate mode of transportation by businessmen, professionals and transportation industry. In this regards, the purpose of this study is to explore whether L.R.T can be a feasible form of urban rail mode in the context of Seoul. First, the study develops the mathematical models to derive optimum route networks and stations. Integer Programming is employed to determine whether alternative routes are financially viable from the viewpoint of revenue maximization principles. Second, mathematical models developed are applied to Yoido area in order to examine the validity of model structures. The models constructed turns out be capable of handling alternative routes and stations. Application of models are successfully carried out to derive financially feasible set of routes and stations.
Modeling of an isolated intersection using Petri Network
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 12, issue 3, 1994, Pages 49~64
The development of a mathematical modular framework based on Petri Network theory to model a traffic network is the subject of this paper. Traffic intersections are the primitive elements of a transportation network and are characterized as event driven and asynchronous systems. Petri network have been utilized to model these discrete event systems; further analysis of their structure can reveal information relevant to the concurrency, parallelism, synchronization, and deadlock avoidance issuse. The Petri-net based model of a generic traffic junction is presented. These modular networks are effective in synchronizing their components and can be used for modeling purposes of an asynchronous large scale transportation system. The derived model is suitable for simulations on a multiprocessor computer since its program execution safety is secured. The software pseudocode for simulating a transportation network model on a multiprocessor system is presented.
