This paper formulates two dynamic network traffic assignment models in which O-D desires for the planning horizon are assumed known a priori: the system optimal (SO) and the user equilibrium (UE) time-dependent traffic assignment formulations. Solution algorithms developed and implemented for these models incorporate a traffic simulation model within an overall iterative search framework. Experiments conducted on a test network provide the basis for a comparative analysis of system performance under the SO and UE models.
