End Date:31/08/2017 17:00
Event Code:PTRC0473

The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from “simple” equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.
