KAPACITETSUTREDNING

THIS IS A DESCRIPTION OF DEVELOPMENT WORK PERFORMED BY THE SWEDISH ROAD ADMINISTRATION WITH A VIEW TO DRAWING UP SPECIFICATIONS FOR CALCULATING CAPACITY AND TRAFFICABILITY OF ROADS AND STREETS AND OTHER TRAFFIC INSTALLATIONS. THE CALCULATIONS WILL SERVE AS GUIDELINES FOR DESIGNING TRAFFIC INSTALLATIONS. THE DIFFERENT FACTORS INFLUENCING THE TRAFFICABILITY FOR CERTAIN TRAFFIC INSTALLATIONS ARE REVIEWED AS WELL AS THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE FACTORS. THEORETIC MODELS FOR DESCRIBING A TRAFFIC SITUATION AND RESULTS FROM TESTS PERFORMED ARE PRESENTED AND DISCUSSED. THE FOLLOWING TRAFFIC INSTALLATIONS ARE DISCUSSED WITH REGARD TO CAPACITY: ROADS WITHOUT INTERSECTIONS, CONTROLLED AND UNCONTROLLED INTERSECTIONS, DIVERSIONS AND STREET NETWORKS. THE CAPACITY OF CERTAIN TRAFFIC INSTALLATIONS FOR PEDESTRIAN- AND BICYCLE TRAFFIC AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT, IS ALSO DISCUSSED. /TRRL/
