Modelling of traffic performance for Swedish roads and motorways

This thesis consists of five scientific articles oriented towards capacity. and documents development and calibration of new models for motorway links, entry and exit lanes and weaving areas and a developed space-time model with the ability to calculate queue length, delay, etc. The first article is focused on identifying weaknesses in the former Swedish capacity method for motorways, and development of new models overcoming these shortcomings. The second article describes the development of a Swedish motorway space-time model to estimate travel times and queues in oversaturated conditions based on the American FREEVAL model in Highway Capacity Manual 2010 (HCM 2010). The third article describes further development of the intersection model in the Swedish microscopic model “Rural Traffic Simulator (RuTSim). The fourth article describes the development of a new capacity model for roadwork zones. Focus is on the resulting capacity of one lane due to several reduction factors. The fifth article describes development and implementation of a new harmonization algorithm for MCS systems on motorways designed to increase bottleneck capacity and throughput.
