OPTIMAL PERIODIC CONTROL OF REVERSIBLE TRAFFIC OPERATIONS

A CLASS OF TRAFFIC OPERATIONS IS IDENTIFIED IN WHICH TWO OR MORE STREAMS OF TRAFFIC COMPETE FOR THE USE OF THE LANES IN A FACILITY FOR WHICH THERE ARE ALTERNATIVE ALLOCATIONS OF CAPACITY TO THE COMPETING STREAMS. MATHEMATICAL MODELS OF THE DELAYS INCURRED AS A FUNCTION OF THE DEMANDS FOR SERVICE AND THE ALLOCATION DECISIONS ARE CONSTRUCTED ASSUMING THAT THE STATE OF THE OPERATION IS REVIEWED PERIODICALLY. THE MODELS ARE FORMULATED IN THE GENERAL CONTEXT OF BRIDGES AND TUNNELS, BUT ARE LATER MODIFIED TO REFLECT THE PECULIARITIES OF VARIOUS INTERSECTION SITUATIONS. THEIR SOLUTION IS ILLUSTRATED IN A CASE STUDY USING ACTUAL DATA FOR THE CHESAPEAKE BAY BRIDGE. THE RESEARCH IS THEN EXTENDED TO INCLUDE AN ADAPTIVE CONTROL ALGORITHM AND THE CONSIDERATION OF RANDOM ARRIVALS. /DOT/
