urban mass transit dynamic disequilibrium distribution local disruption
In order to find a method which can describe the passenger flow dynamical distribution of urban mass transit during interval interrupted operation, an urban railway network topology model was built based on the travel path dual graph by considering interchange, crowd and congestion. The breadth first valid travel path search algorithm is proposed, and the multipath passenger flow distribution logit model is improved. According to the characteristics of passengers under the interruption condition, the distribution rules of different types of passenger flow are proposed. The method of calculating the aggregation number of station is proposed for the case of insufficient transport capacity. Finally, the passenger flow of Beijing urban mass transit is simulated for the case study. The results show that the relative error of most of transfer passenger flow is below 10%. The proposed model and algorithm can accurately assign the daily passenger flow, which provides a theoretical basis for urban mass transit emergency management and decision.
