Abstract

This paper presents and demonstrates, through a case study, an integrated modeling framework of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's new mobile emission model MOVES (Motor Vehicle Emission Simulator) and a simulation-based dynamic traffic assignment (SBDTA) model for project-level emissions analyses. Specifically, this research focuses on the methodology and integration process that automates the extraction and conversion of traffic activity data to MOVES' required inputs. The emissions differences between using MOVES default drive schedule and using local specific operating mode distribution inputs are also explored. The integration approach is useful to support transportation conformity analyses required by law in the United States.
