Methods of performing dynamic traffic assignment are needed to simulate traffic conditions on urban highways during peak periods of congestion. In this paper, the route choice behavior and two kinds o dynamic user optimum are analyzed first, then the constrains for dynamic traffic assignment problem are formulated. Finally, a practical simulation method is developed to perform dynamic traffic assignment for urban road network.
