Network theory and Saaty's analytic heirarchy process (AHP) are considered to be effective methods for estimating a city's traffic pattern during the emergency period of an earthquake, and for evaluating the urban transportation network of that city. A graph is created in which the nodes are land uses (or a group of land uses), crossroads or junctions represent the city, and the arcs are the streets. AHP is used to determine the priority of trips, and shortest path techniques identify the… CONTINUE READING
