This paper describes Rutgers Incident Management System (RIMS) software that is developed to evaluate the benefits of various incident management strategies and technologies. This tool can generate incidents and test various response strategies and technologies. South Jersey highway network is used as a test network due to the available historical incident(More)

In this paper, the development of a microscopic simulation model of the New Jersey Turnpike (NJTPK) using Paramics microscopic simulation software is presented. The model is validated/calibrated using the detailed vehicle-by-vehicle toll data at each toll plaza in the NJTPK. The dataset includes the entry toll plaza, exit toll plaza, entry and exit times,(More)
The impacts of disasters have been recently attracting increasing attention of researchers and policy makers. Nevertheless, there has been little consensus about how an efficient inventory management model can be developed for post-disaster conditions. Victims of a disaster are generally gathered into shelters during and after a severe disaster to ensure(More)
This paper proposes mathematical programming models with probabilistic constraints in order to address incident response and resource allocation problems for traffic incident management. In incident response problems, we introduce the concept of quality of service during a potential incident to give the operator the flexibility to determine the optimal(More)
Work zones are temporary traffic control zones that can potentially cause safety problems. Maintaining safety, while implementing necessary changes on roadways, is an important challenge traffic engineers and researchers have to confront. In this study, the risk factors in work zone safety evaluation were identified through the estimation of a crash(More)
