  Navigation Economic Technologies Program

Toolbox

 

The NETS research program is in the process of developing a series of practical tools and techniques that can be used by Corps navigation planners across the country to develop consistent, accurate, useful and comparable information regarding the likely impact of proposed changes to navigation infrastructure or systems.

The centerpiece of these efforts will be a suite of simulation models. This suite will include:

  • A model for forecasting international and domestic traffic flows and how they may be affected by project improvements.
  • A regional traffic routing model that will identify the annual quantities of commodities coming from various origin points and the routes used to satisfy forecasted demand at each destination.
  • A microscopic event model that will generate routes for individual shipments from commodity origin to destination in order to evaluate non-structural and reliability measures.

As these models and other tools are finalized they will be available through this section of the web site:
