This overview is not complete, but it does provide some idea of the ways Fosim can be used. Some of the reports can be downloaded. Fosim users can, if desired, have studies that they have carried out included in this list. Please send your request to Fosim site wishes.

Hoogendoorn, H.J. van Zuylen, Freeway Travel Time Prediction with State-Space Neural Networks - Modeling State-Space Dynamics with Recurrent Neural Networks, Preprint 02-2797 of the 81st Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board, Washington D.C.: Transportation Research Board, 2002

Fosim was used to generate 'artificial' traffic data to evaluate algorithms that predict travel times with neural networks.

Bliemer, M.C.J., Analytical Dynamic Traffic Assignment with Interacting User Classes - Theoretical Advances and Applications using a Variational Inequality Approach, Delft: Delft University Press Science, 2001

Fosim was used to generate 'artificial' traffic data, specifically, with a large amount of heavy vehicles, in a research project that developed an analytical dynamic traffic assignment model with interacting user classes.

Estimation of the capacities of several design alternatives of motorway sections in the province of Noord-Brabant [in Dutch]

ir. R.G.M.M. Vermijs, Capaciteit van symmetrische weefvakken, Delft, AVV, 1997 (see Capacity of symmetrical weaving sections)

Estimation of the capacities of symmetrical weaving sections, carried out for the Dutch Capacity Manual for Motorways [in English]

ir T. Dijker, dr ir M.M. Minderhoud, Capacity of symmetrical weaving sections, Delft, AVV, 2002 (see Capaciteit van asymmetrische weefvakken)

Estimation of the capacities of asymmetrical weaving sections, carried out for the Dutch Capacity Manual for Motorways [in Dutch]

Leeuw, A.M. de, T. Dijker, Traffic Operations at the Zoomland Interchange (Afwikkelingskwaliteit knooppunt Zoomland), Delft: The Delft University of Technology, 1998

Fosim was used to estimate the capacity of several design alternatives for the A4-A58 interchange 'Zoomland'.

Dijker, T., P.H.L. Bovy, R.G.M.M. Vermijs, Car following under congested conditions: empirical findings, In: Transportation Research Record 1644, Washington, D.C.: Transportation Research Board, 1998, pp. 20-28 (see the Documentation section)

Emperical research showed significant differences in car-following behaviour during congested and non-congested conditions. When these findings were used in an experimental version of Fosim, the simulation results for congested flow conditions corresponded far better with reality.

Transpute & TU Delft, Forecast of the Traffic Operations at the Terbregseplein Interchange - Effects of the Project 'Truck Lanes A20 and A16 - 2nd Phase' (Prognose Verkeersafwikkeling Terbregseplein - Effekten van het project 'Vrachtstroken A20 en A16 - 2e Fase' op de Verkeersafwikkeling), Gouda: Transpute, 1995 [In Dutch]

Fosim was used to determine the consequences of separate infrastructure for heavy vehicles at the Terbregseplein interchange. The results were used in a queueing model to assess the consequences for the interchange as a whole.

Schuurman, H., Overtaking Prohibition for Trucks on Motorways? (Inhaalverbod voor vrachtverkeer op autosnelwegen?), In: Verkeerskundige Werkdagen 1995, Ede: C.R.O.W, 1995, pp. 71-79 [In Dutch]

Fosim was used to assess the consequences of a prohibition for trucks to overtake.
