A review of models for the temporal distribution of peak traffic demand
The existing models for predicting the temporal distribution of peak traffic demand are reviewed in this paper. Based on their assumptions and concepts, the models are classified into three groups as follows: deterministic user equilibrium (DUE), stochastic user equilibrium (SUE) and system optimum (SO). The merits and weaknesses of each group are discussed with regards to the validity of their assumptions and computational problems associated with them. Most of the models were developed for the single origin-destination pair with simple network system which is an oversimplification of a practical problem involving multiple origin-destination pairs with complex network systems. This is a major limitation when considering the application of the existing models to real life problems. Directions for future research are then proposed.
