    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 11. Evaluation, simulation and guidelines

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 11. Evaluation, simulation and guidelines

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. The Dutch traffic (history and transport) policy will be discussed in this lecture. Different evaluation types and levels will be discussed, as well as how to monitor data and trends. This lecture also explains how to perform an evaluation or simulation study.

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 10. Pedestrian Flow Theory

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 10. Pedestrian Flow Theory

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. This lecture discusses the behaviour of crowds and how to model them. The differences between car traffic and pedestrian traffic will be discussed so you will be able to apply the concepts of flow, density and speed to pedestrian flows.

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 9. Lateral driving behaviour

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 9. Lateral driving behaviour

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. This lecture explains the gap acceptance theory and different models for motorway lane changing including the Mobil lane change model. The number of lane changes, merging and a theory for lane selection will be discussed as well.

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 8. Car-following and stability

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 8. Car-following and stability

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. In this lecture the Wiedeman principle and how to draw the associated diagrams is explained. Action point modelling is discussed. The calibration of parameters of car-following behavior, capacity, capacity drop and the queue discharge rate are topics covered in this lecture.

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 7. Car-following: The basics

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 7. Car-following: The basics

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. This lecture discusses the car-following model and how to calculate the resulting behaviour for the Newel, IDM and other models. Stability is discussed and it explained how to derive the fundamental diagram from a car-following equation.

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 6. Influence of trucks, lagrangian coordinates and MFD

    Traffic Flow Theory and Simulation: 6. Influence of trucks, lagrangian coordinates and MFD

    CIE4821. Master course fundamental traffic flow characteristics and traffic flow variables. Lagrangian coordinates and the advantages of Lagrangian formulation will be elaborated in this lecture. The lecture also discuss how trucks influence the traffic stream and and introduces macroscopic fundamental diagrams.
