Definition and Evaluation Modeling of Transportation Network Layout Adaptability
According to the reliability theories and the characteristics of transportation networks, the layout adaptability is defined as the coupling and coordination degree of transportation network capacity and demand firstly. Then a layout adaptability model is built adopting the optimization methods, degree of layout adaptability index and coefficient of variation are used to evaluate the adaptability of scale and distribution respectively. Meanwhile, the heuristic algorithm suitable for large scale is designed to solve the proposed model. At last, a numerical example and its results are provided to demonstrate the validity of the proposed model and algorithm.
