Abstract

In literature nothing much is known about optimal dimension of pedestrian transportation terminals. The right tradeoff between infrastructure and pedestrian cost can led to identify optimal dimensional combination among the elements through which flow moves. This will increase terminal performances at user benefit. A methodology to size the functional terminal layouts was developed, by the integration of analytical and simulative models submitted to generic algorithms, considering the dynamics and flows generated inside the terminals. The developed methodology reveals a flexible and simple instrument, accurate in the resolution of the problems for which has been structured.
