This book describes how the flow pattern throughout an urban network can be determined by modeling two mechanisms -- travel decisions and congestion. The analysis here looks at transportation level of service (or travel disutility) and flows.
The book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners and graduate students in transportation. The book is divided into three main parts: planning, operations, and design.
