Who's using DynusT and in what applications?
The above map shows the sample footprints of DynusT as of 2016. More than 20 states and 50 models have been created by DynusT users.
DynusT is the most widely used DTA model with more than 200 projects/publications by users worldwide due to its superior traffic simulation realism and computational efficiency. DynusT has been used in the following projects. Most of them are large regional networks with daily simulation assignments:
Work zone management (UA, SHRP2 R11, Kittleson, ADOT; TTI, TxDOT; PB, MDOT, Atkins, CDOT; UA,DVRPC )
Interstate highway corridor improvement (TTI, TxDOT, ELPMPO, UA, CDOT)
Value pricing (Atkins, CDOT; ORNL, FHWA; SRF, Mn/DOT, TTI, TxDOT, UA, CDOT/DRCOG)
Evacuation operational planning (Virginia Tech U, VDOT/VDEM; TTI, TxDOT, UA, ADOT; LSU, LDOT; Noblis, FHWA; Univ. of Toronto, Cornell Univ. Jackson State Univ., MDOT, Univ. of Missouri, MDOT)
Integrated Corridor Management modeling (CS, FHWA, MAG, NCSU, NCDOT, MAG)
Regional Strategic Model (Portland Metro, SCAG, DRCOG)
Activity-based model integration (UA, SHRP2 C10; UA, DRCOG; UA, SCAG; FHWA EARP, SHRP-C10 – ARC, GA and MORPC, OH)
