This paper describes the application of the micro-computer compatible Florida Standard Urban Transportation Modeling Structure (Micro-FSUTMS) to estimate traffic volume for the purpose...

Focused Model Approach for Corridors and Subareas
A focused modeling approach utilizes calibrated model parameters and inputs from a regional model, yet allows the flexibility to quickly test land use, network and other policy alternatives....

Evaluation of Microcomputer Traffic Forecasting Models: The Michigan Experience
The paper describes results of the needs assessment for modelling software of Michigan's thirteen '3C' areas, criteria used to compare software capabilities...

Microcomputer Tools for Small Area Planning Analysis
A microcomputer software concept is presented which integrates the traffic engineering and planning functions of traffic impact studies. A collection of suggested ideas for better integration...

A Comprehensive Method for Capacity Analysis and Signal Timing Design
This paper presents a rational methodology which combines several of the most significant programs in the signalized intersection and traffic signal timing design are in a comprehensive...

A Microcomputer Package for Interrelating the Highway Capacity Manual and SOAP 84
There is some evidence that the SOAP program may replicate signalized intersection delay more realistically than the 1985 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) operational procedure for signalized...

A Practical Way of Using the 1985 HCM - Signalized Intersection Methods
The signalized intersection chapter of the 1985 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) is probably the most widely used chapter, and thereby the most significant, and yet is very complex and sometimes...

TRAF-EDIT: An Interactive Data Editor for the TRAF Simulation System
This paper describes TRAF-EDIT, an interactive data entry/editing program for the TRAF simulation system. TRAF-EDIT will provide the user with the capability of creating an input data...

The Integrated Traffic Data System
Integrated Traffic Data System (ITDS) is a microcomputer-based system designed to allow traffic engineers to store, maintain and update traffic network information in a centralized data...

Traffic Simulation at Unsignalized Intersections Using GPSS
This paper develops a simulation model, based on actual field data, that simulates the minor street left turn movement at a STOP-controlled T-intersection. This simulation model predicts...

Current Status and Future of the Highway Capacity Software
This paper discusses the current status of the Highway Capacity Software (HCS) and comments on its future, including its relations with other capacity software. Subjects covered include...

Collection and Analysis of Speed and Delay Using Portable Microcomputers
Speed and delay studies are performed routinely on urban street networks. The data are used for a variety of transportation engineering purposes including signal timing design, roadway...

Data Collection Using a Portable Computer and Digitizing Tablet
This paper describes a data collection system developed by the New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center. The key features of this data collection method are its ease of use, single step...

Traffic Simulation and its Graphic Presentations
A computer simulation program for traffic signal timing design was developed. The program can provide some appealing graphic presentations not only of input data but also of output results....

Synthetic O-D Microcomputer Trip Table Packages
Three microcomputer models for synthetic estimation of origin-destination trip tables are compared based on theoretical foundations, implementability, and operating performances. Each...

Arterial Traffic Flow in Construction Zones
Previously, NETSIM (NETwork SIMulation model) was the only available simulation model that could investigate a wide mix of traffic control and traffic management strategies for a network...

A Matching Algorithm That Eliminates the Need for Radio Signposts in Automatic Passenger Counters on Buses
Volumes of raw data collected using the Automatic Data Aquisition system are useless until they can be processed and transformed into meaningful reports and plots. This is done using a...

Processing Automatically Collected Patronage Data
Since the late 1970's, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) has had the capability to automatically collect trip origin and destination data from its faregates....
