PTV Visum - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Please make sure the page has finished loading before you browse the FAQ list.
Which settings are (generally) recommended for PrT assignments?
The following settings are recommended:
- The number of iterations should be as high as possible. Using equilibrium_Lohse the number should be at least 100, even better 1000.
Functions (Calculate -> Procedure -> PrT functions):
- VDFs should be yet rising in the underload range, that means i.e. that for BPR the exponent should never be higher than 4, even better 2-3. In the overload range, a linear gain is desired (i.e. VDF 'Lohse').
- Scaling of impedance, i.e. Imp = 100 * tcur.
- Number of decimal places for PrT demand = 3 (until Visum 9.5).
