Congratulations to Tanapon Lilasathapornkit of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of New South Wales for winning the 2022 SIDRA SOLUTIONS Postgraduate Award for his paper titled ‘Traffic assignment problem for footpath networks with bidirectional links’.

Summary of Reseach

Tanapon's research focuses on exploring network-wide pedestrian bidirectional dynamics, developing frameworks for static and dynamic pedestrian network traffic assignment models, and estimating an empirical pedestrian route choice model using revealed preference data. The static model, user equilibrium traffic assignment problem (UE-pTAP), enables transport engineers and urban planners to understand the network-wide impact of pedestrians in the urban context for long-term strategic planning applications. The dynamic model, dynamic pedestrian network traffic assignment (DPTA), enables transport engineers to simulate planned interruptions, such as signal control. The DPTA can also replicate unplanned disruptions, for example, capacity reduction due to incidents with essential pedestrian dynamic properties and the propagation of shockwaves on a large scale.

Here are two papers by Tanapon:
