A hierarchical flow capturing location problem with demand attraction based on facility size, and its Lagrangian relaxation solution method

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The original flow capturing location problem aims to locate a given number of facilities on a network to maximize the total flow that can be serviced at facilities along their preplanned routes, such as daily commute to work. A new problem is presented in which the number of facilities of each size and their locations are determined so as to capture as much flow as possible within the total budget available for locating all facilities. A Lagrangian relaxation solution method is devised. The algorithm is tested using road networks with 300 and 500 nodes
