Model of Parallel-Type Acceleration Lane Length

A model of a parallel-type acceleration lane length based on the dynamic merging process is established in this study to determine the need for parallel-type acceleration lane length of merging vehicles. The model considers road operation and design attributes, driver attributes, vehicle attributes, and several random attributes in the insertion process, and sets random attributes as the breakthrough point. Furthermore, Monte Carlo simulation is used to solve the model. The case study introduces the use of the model and proves its applicability.
