Title: Capacity Of Two-sided Type C On Freeway With Four Lanes
Author: Ghasemi-Majd, Shadi
Abstract: Weaving segments are categorized based on weaving length, configuration, number of lanes, free flow speed and weaving ratio. All these parameters affect weaving capacity. One of the objectives of this research was to extend Phong Thanh Vo's dissertation and study the relation between weaving capacity of two-sided type C on freeways with four lanes and any potential variables (mainalane demand, entrance ramp demand, exit ramp demand and weaving ratio). Micro-simulation has been used in order to analyze different capacity scenarios and the VISSIM calibrated model by Vo was used. Also, the effect of each of the VISSIM calibration parameters on weaving capacity has been studied in this research. In conclusion, the reader will find a few suggestions in better estimating capacities under VISSIM microscopic simulation software.
