Abstract

This chapter outlines a wide range of methods and mathematical models which may assist the transportation systems engineer in designing projects or interventions. It should be stated at the outset that supply design models(1) are not meant to “automate” the complex task of design, especially when the proposed actions can alter significantly the performances of the transportation system. In this case, as we have seen, the project may have structural effects ranging from changes in land use to modifications in the level and structure of travel demand. On the other hand, the elements of the transportation supply to be designed may assume a very large number of possible configurations; circulation directions in an urban road network or the lines and frequencies of a transit system are two cases in point. In these cases it is practically impossible to explore and compare all the feasible configurations to identify the optimum with respect to a given set of objectives and constraints.
