The Actual Traffic Capacity of Freeway

This note contributes to the advanced continuum modeling for describing traffic actual capacity of freeway. The actual capacity of freeway is affected by the road geometry, traffic, weather and environmental factors, etc., so the model must take the aforementioned factors into account. Ultimately, a basic section on Chendu-Yaan freeway was selected to test and simulate through the VISSIM simulation software. The comparison of simulation data and investigation data indicates that the new model is ideally suited for inspecting the traffic capacity and traffic state in real-time.
