The dynamic network loading problem is crucial for performing dynamic traffic assignment. It must reproduce the network flow propagation, while taking into account the time and a variable traffic demand on each path of the network. In this paper, we consider a simulation-based approach for dynamic network loading as the best-suited option. We present a multiclass multilane dynamic network loading model based on a mesoscopic scheme that uses a continuous-time link-based approach with a complete demand discretization. In order to demonstrate the correctness of the model, we computationally validate the proposed simulation model using a variety of laboratory tests. The obtained results look promising, showing the model's ability to reproduce multilane multiclass traffic behaviors for medium-size urban networks.
