Slide 2

Learning Objectives

  • To differentiate between interrupted and uninterrupted flow facilities

  • To define general and linear speed-density relationships

  • To derive, sketch, and apply Greenshield’s Model of traffic flow

Density

Slide 6

Recap…

  • Speed (v) – ft/sec or mph

  • Flow (q) – veh/sec or vph

  • Density (k) – veh/ft or vpm

  • Spacing (s) – ft/veh

  • Headway (h) – sec/veh

  • Clearance (c) – ft/veh

  • Gap (g) – sec/veh

    Remember, units are critical!

Slide 7

Fundamental Relationships

  • q = k v

    (veh/hr) = (veh/mi)  (mi/hr)

  • h = 1 /q

    (sec/veh) = 1 / (veh/hr)  (3600)

  • s = 1 /k

    (ft/veh) = 1 / (veh/mi)  (5280)

Slide 8

Types of Facilities

  • Uninterrupted flow

    • Freeways

    • Multilane highways

    • Two-lane highways

Slide 9

Types of Facilities

  • Interrupted flow

    • Signalized streets

    • Un-signalized streets with stop signs

    • Transit lanes

    • Pedestrian walkways

Slide 13

Greenshield’s Model

  • Assume a linear relationship between v and k:

Low Density = High Speed

vf

High Density = Low Speed

Slide 16

Example

Assuming a linear v-k relationship, the mean free speed is 60 mph near zero density, and the corresponding jam density is 140 vpm. Assume the average length of vehicles is 20 ft. Find:

  • v(k) and q(k)

  • Sketch v-k, v-q, and q-k diagrams

  • Compute v and k at q=1000 vph

  • Compute the average headway, spacings, clearances, and gaps when the flow is maximum
