Creating Traffic Models is a challenging task because some of their interactions and system components are difficult to adequately express in a mathematical form.Traffic Flow Theory: Characteristics, Experimental Methods, and Numerical Techniques provide traffic engineers with the necessary methods and techniques for mathematically representing traffic flow. The book begins with a rigorous but easy to understand exposition of traffic flow characteristics including Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and traffic sensing technologies.

  • Includes worked out examples and cases to illustrate concepts, models, and theories
  • Provides modeling and analytical procedures for supporting different aspects of traffic analyses for supporting different flow models
  • Carefully explains the dynamics of traffic flow over time and space
