Dynamic Bus Routing Problem for Evacuation
MetadataShow full item record
Evacuation is an important management when disaster occurs. Automobile is always considered as a traditional tool in evacuation planning. While, in recent years, public transit attracts more and more attention and has been extensively used in evacuation planning. This paper proposed a one-stage multiclass evacuation model based on Cell Transmission Model(CTM) where evacuation buses is assigned to dangerous area to evacuate people. The model dynamically captures the interaction between normal vehicles and buses units where the priority of buses and First-In-First-Out process is observed. A heuristic method incorporating bender decomposition is developed to achieve a approximating optimal problem solutions. The computational results from the real case study justify the interaction we observed before.
