MICROCOMPUTER PROGRAM TO ANALYZE UNSIGNALIZED INERSECTIONS. SESSION 4

With the popularity and availablity of microcomputers, labor intensive, hand calculated analyses methods can be simplified, saving the transportation engineer much time. As a part of a masters degree project at Oregon State University, a microcomputer program was developed to analyze unsignalized intersections that are controlled only on the minor approaches. The majority of the program is based on methods described in Transportation Research Board Circular Number 212, published in 1980. In addition, several formulas are included to estimate queue length and delay for each minor movement. Levels of service are determined based on these delay calculations, and these are compared to levels of service found using the recommended criteria from Circular 212 for unsignalized intersections.
