Title:Multi-Objective Optimization of Intersection and Roadway Access Design
Authors:John T. Taber
University:Utah State University
Publication Date:Jan 1998
Report #:MPC-98-90
Project #:MPC-120
TRID #:00748691
Keywords:access, alternatives analysis, design, driveways, expert systems, graphics, intersections, optimization



This research developed a methodology to optimize roadway access intersection design using an expert system to guide design in accordance with published criteria, a graphical multi-criteria evaluation system, which revealed marginal impacts of changing design parameters across three objective functions (delay, safety, and cost); and intelligent techniques, which suggested design parameter changes and found optimal solutions.
