Traffic Simulation Modeling for Major Intersection

Ahmed BAKHSH [1]


The computer simulation is a widespread in industry to support decisions and to approximate systems performance that is not easy to be analyzed. The real decisions often encounter optimization of multiple and opposing, objectives. It is common for transportation problems to be addressed by simulation modeling that use traditional analytical ways. Different kinds of models are investigated depend on the studied problem. This paper examines traffic control mean in terms of the performance measures when utilized in an urban area intersection, i.e. which design minimizes total time in system and waiting time while maximizing number of vehicles out. Simulation models for the base and alternatives are considered in comparison for the best results.
