DynusT has powerful modeling functionality to aid in the decision process in weighing out the “what-ifs” in scenarios alternatives of traffic network modeling. DynusT's approach to examining "what-if" scenarios equips the user with practical knowledge of potential conclusions. Learn more about the DynusT approach to effective analysis in the article below.
Scenario Modeling and Analysis
An important aspect of analysis is comparing the “baseline” versus the “alternative”. Performing these types of “scenario comparison” in transportation modeling becomes quite important in evaluating the costs vs. the benefits for many applications ranging from traffic operations of an intersection’s improved signal timing to network forecasting of an entire region.Read More...
List of Applications
DynusT includes a comprehensive list of modeling applications that allow the user to simulate and evaluate numerous scenarios that can occur in real-life networks.
DynusT provides an array of approaches for the modeling of value pricing scenarios. The value pricing type on a link may be link-based, e.g., toll gantry, or distance-based ($/mile). The user will input the start and end time of the link price, and the price per vehicle type (SOV, HOV and commercial truck). Lastly, the user must specify the value of time (VoT) for SOV, HOV, and commercial truck. With such parameters, the user has the capability to model various pricing scenarios such as high occupancy vehicle (HOV) facilities, high occupancy toll (HOT) facilities and vehicle-type restriction. Once the simulation is complete, DynusT will output pricing revenue earned for each priced link.Read more
DynusT has powerful functionality for modeling and evaluating large-scale evacuation, as well as modeling mechanisms to simulate specific network adaptions under evaulation-like scenarios, such as contra-flow lanes. A unique capability in DynusT is modeling both Descriptive and Prescriptive scenarios for large-scale evacuation.Read more
An incident is described as a time-dependent event, such as a car accident or a temporary special event that impedes the trafficway thus causing a reduction in capacity. The "severity" of the incident will be input by the user as the severity is the fraction of link capacity lost due to the incident. For an active incident, DynusT will reduce the physical capacity (lane-miles) and maximum flow rate of the incident link.Read more
A work zone is an area of a trafficway under maintenance, construction, utility-work, etc. In DynusT, a work zone can model different closure types and configurations including "partial closure" and "crossover" work zones. In the NEXTA GUI, the work zone is demarcated by a "flagger" icon on the center of the link. The entire link length is under the given parameters of the work zone during the specified time period.Read more
Dynamic Mesage Signs
DynusT provides the ability to configure dynamic message sign (DMS), or variable message sign (VMS), information in the network model with three different types of messages informing travelers of downstream conditions. In the NEXTA GUI, a blue "VMS" sign will be posted on the link.Read more
