A simulation of the cascading failure of a complex network model by considering the characteristics of road traffic conditions
Using the dual method, we start with a traditional road traffic network with a constructed logic network with small-world characteristics and construct the complex network of road traffic. After analyzing and comparing with other complex networks, the time delay, restorative, and other characteristics are presented for the complex network of road traffic, and then, the cascading failure model of the complex network is simulated. The simulation results show that using different time delays, an incident dissipation factor and load capacity can reasonably avoid a cascading failure, and they can remove its effects. In addition, our results provide value and guidance for building a road traffic network that prevents and removes the cascading failure of a road network.
