Étude théorique et expérimentale des phénomènes de congestion sur un réseau ferroviaire urbain

Abstract : Over the last twenty years, public transport issues in the Paris region have become a major concern. The French national railway company, which operates most of the rail network in this region, plays a central role in the organisation of transport. However, in contrast to expectations in this sector, rail traffic is experiencing a number of malfunctions. As part of an overall approach to questioning the principles of rail operation in dense areas, this thesis provides a new look at the origin of delays affecting trains. Drawing on road traffic tools and in particular the basic network diagram, the basic railway line diagram is defined for railways, which makes it possible to represent the flow as a function of concentration on a portion of a railway line. This tool is then used to compare the results from our model with a set of data measured on two railway lines in the Paris region, which shows that our model can qualitatively reproduce the traffic congestion phenomena observed on real cases.(Translated with
