We are pleased to confirm the next Introduction to SATURN training course is planned for 20 - 22 February 2024. Please email email@example.com to register your interest.
Advanced notice - The SATURN support desk will close over the Christmas period from 5pm Friday 15 December 2023 and reopen at 9am Wednesday 3 January 2024.
Capable of generating highly converged highway assignments quickly even for very large models
Unique algorithms allow complex junction interactions to be accurately modelled
Outputs from assignments can be used to assess model suitability
Get help to resolve your problem from seasoned modellers and experts in SATURN
SATURN has been continuously developed over the last 30 years by the combination of academic theoretical rigour, through Dr Dirck Van Vliet and the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds and the practical knowledge of Atkins Limited.
Whatever your transport needs…
…SATURN can help.
SATURN accurately reflects the effects of congestion on urban road networks by explicitly modelling the impact of queues that form at a particular junctions on the capacity of those upstream ('blocking back') and the reducing flows able to travel downstream ('flow metering'). Other modelling software simply treats junctions in isolation, and therefore, without accurately reflecting the impact of queues on network performance.
SATURN can input and output data at the matrix, link and junction level in a multitude of different formats, allowing you to work cross-platform with other multimodal transportation software or economic appraisal tools. With SATURN, you are in control of the data.
