This course will focus on the use of quantitative modelling and analysis to solve transportation engineering problems. It will cover principles of optimisation and linear programming; sensitivity analysis; simulation modelling and analysis; statistical modelling; validity and hypothesis testing; survey design; experimental design; and statistical inference techniques. Case studies will be examined to illustrate and analyse the scope and limitations of transport models and traffic behaviour.
