FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION OF HOURLY TRAFFIC FLOW FOR TRAFFIC COUNTS, WITH REFERENCE TO RESULTS FROM AUTOMATIC ROAD TRAFFIC COUNTS BETWEEN 1970 AND 1973

HAEUFIGKEITSVERTEILUNG DER STUENDLICHEN VERKEHRSMENGEN BEI QUERSCHNITTSZAEHLUNGEN ANHAND DER ERGEBNISSE DER AUTOMATISCHEN STRASSENVERKEHRSZAEHLUNGEN 1970 BIS 1973

SOME FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS OF HOURLY TRAFFIC FLOW FROM TRAFFIC COUNTS HAVE BEEN ANALYSED. THE PURPOSE OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DRAW CONCLUSIONS ON THE INFLUENCE OF ROAD NETWORK ON TRAFFIC BEHAVIOUR BASED ON SHORT-TERM COUNTS FROM A FEW PEAK HOURS. A CORRELATION ANALYSIS IS USED IN WHICH THE VARIATION COEFFICIENT SERVES AS AN INDEPENDENT VARIABLE. IN THE FIRST ASSESSMENT THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLES ARE REPRESENTED BY THE SEASONAL SCATTER OF HOURLY FLOWS AND THE AVERAGE HOURLY TRAFFIC FLOW EACH YEAR. IN THE SECOND ASSESSMENT THE QUOTIENT FROM THE HOURLY PEAK AND THE AVERAGE HOURLY FLOW IS USED. THE REGRESSION EQUATIONS ARE VERIFIED BY MEANS OF DATA FROM AUTOMATIC TRAFFIC COUNTS IN WHICH HIGH CORRELATION COEFFICIENTS INDICATE THAT CORRELATION IS GOOD.
