                         plaquette. The transition is induced by external driving current 
                         and thermal fluctuations near rational vortex densities set by the 
                         value of f and has been observed experimentally from the scaling 
                         behavior of the differential resistivity. Recently, numerical 
                         simulations of interacting vortex models have demonstrated this 
                         behavior only near fractional f. A fine-grid vortex model is 
                         introduced, which allows us to consider both the cases of 
                         fractional and integer f. The critical behavior is determined from 
                         a scaling analysis of the current-voltage relation and voltage 
                         correlations near the transition and by Monte Carlo simulations. 
                         The critical exponents for the transition near f = 1/2 are 
                         consistent with the experimental observations and previous 
                         numerical results from a standard vortex model. The same scaling 
                         behavior is obtained for f = 1, in agreement with experiments. 
                         However, the estimated correlation-length exponent indicates that 
                         even at integer f, the critical behavior is not of mean-field
