Railway Network Capacity Analysis for Strategic Planning
Increasing demand for rail freight transportation requires to make the best possible use of the existing infrastructure. This includes not only optimizing the allocation of the existing infrastructure but also to plan construction projects based on their impact on the overall network capacity. In this talk, a model for the railway network is presented that can be used to determine such an overall capacity. This requires the capacity of each individual infrastructure element in the railway network. Also, an approach to define and compute the overall capacity is introduced.
