Passenger Response to Random Vibration in Transportation Vehicles: Literature Review
MetadataShow full item record
The design concepts used to implement a computer simulation of a land use decision model are described. Sources delineated by a literature search are examined for the statements made ("source postulates") concerning the interactions of leaders of dominant and subdominant social groups when making land use decisions. Specific attention is paid to the role of leader personalities and the power of the social groups represented in the final decision outcome. Source postulates are rewritten in a symbolic logic notation, and a set of "rules of behavior" is derived. Consistency among source postulates and correct implication procedures in deriving rules can be checked via theorem-proving methodology. The second phase of design entails replacing symbolic logic statements with "fuzzy logic" statements and algorithms. The set of rules in either notation constitutes a model, and both notations are programmable.
