MICRO 2 - AN AIR QUALITY INTERSECTION MODEL

This report described the MICRO2 computer model and how to use it. This program models traffic at an intersection based on Webster's Formulation. Delay, stops, pollution emissions and fuel consumption are determined. In addition, a file is created which can be used directly by the California Line Source Model (CALINE3) to determine carbon monoxide concentration at a receptor. The model can model multi-lane turns, overcapacity conditions, and traffic arriving at the intersection in platoons. Predictions by MICRO2 and CALINE3 were compared to a limited amount of monitoring data at a Denver intersection. After considering background concentration, the results compared favorably. (Author)
