Degradable transportation systems: An integrated equilibrium model


Author Info

  • Nicholson, Alan
  • Du, Zhen-Ping
Registered author(s):


    This paper discusses the need for analysis of transportation systems whose components are subject to degradation, and describes an integrated equilibrium model for a large scale, multi-mode degradable transportation system. The existence, uniqueness and stability of the solutions are discussed. Use of the model, to identify the socio-economic impacts of system degradation, the critical components and system reliability, is also discussed.
