    Abstract

    The up-peak roundtrip time calculation (UPRTTC) was designed to be performed by hand calculation. Implemented in software, the UPRTTC can now be performed quickly and efficiently. However, the UPRTTC is incapable of assessing the performance of all but up-peak traffic in buildings where the main entrance is on the lowest floor. More flexible analysis techniques are possible, with calculations designed specifically to be implemented on computers. In this article, the authors compare two established software-based techniques - General Analysis and Simulation - with the UPRTTC, discuss their relative merits and compare the outcomes for some example buildings.
