Abstract

The sensitivity of a traffic network is defined for investigating the variations of the terminal capacities due to the decreases of the capacities of individual elements (stations and links). The sensitivity of a traffic network of n stations is described by a square matrix of order n, called the sensitivity matrix. The maximum off-diagonal entry in a sensitivity matrix is studied. From this information, a method is established for the design of a traffic network such that by using minimum individual element capacities no terminal capacities decrease beyond the specified tolerance when the expected decreases of the element capacities are given.
