A PROGRAM FOR THE MONTE CARLO SIMULATION OF VEHICLE TRAFFIC ALONG TWO-LANE RURAL ROADS. AN APPLICATION OF STRUCTURED PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUE AND SIMULA-67 LANGUAGE
The report describes a computer program for simulating vehicle traffic on two-lane rural roads. For this purpose structured programming has been used. Programming language is SIMULA 67. As far as is known this is the first time structured programming and SIMULA 67 have been applied together with a technical program of this size. The purpose of this project is to determine the effect on traffic of road and traffic engineering schemes in order to establish traffic quality and road user costs in the rural road network. The background relating to system analysis has been treated elsewhere. The simulation model mentioned above describes the dynamic sequence of vehicle traffic over defined stretches of road for given traffic volumes and traffic compositions.
