TRAFFIC THEORIES APPLIED TO PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENT

SULLE TEORIE DEI FLUSSI DI TRAFFICO APPLICATE AL MOTO PEDONALE

Pedestrian flows are quantitatively studied in order to define a systematic method of designing the various spaces attributed to pedestrian movement in urban areas. The study, based on pedestrian surveys in Milan, Italy, has shown the possibility of introducing the level of service criterion into the analysis of pedestrian flows. The theories outlined are exemplified by a mathematical model which can be applied at the design stage, or during operation for monitoring and survey purposes. (TRRL) A design method has been developed for cross sections. It is based on the inconvenience caused by vehicles confronting each other on a narrow carriageway or waiting on passing places. The study is mainly a literature study but it also contains some investigations necessary to validate the theory created for systematical design of cross sections.
