Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report presents the methodology and results of a process that categorizes the transportation network and the derivation of the associated pass rates for convoys of vehicles. The first part of the report describes the process of deriving the pass rates for vehicle convoys. The second part describes the development of an NT-automated protocol interface (API) to determine the highway throughput capacity (vehicles per day) of a given road link based on its Transportation Infrastructure Network Builder (TINet) attributes and the Transportation Analysis Reports Generator (TARGET) movement requirements of the force being modeled. The development effort covers these seven U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command Table of Organization and Equipment forces: separate infantry brigade, airborne division, air assault division, light infantry division, mechanized infantry division (MEC), armor division, and Interim Brigade Combat Team. Throughput capacity as a function of road link attributes is computed for these seven hard-coded force types. The code will also compute a capacity for a TARGET-generated equipment list, which does not match one of the pre-computed seven units.
