DIAMOND INTERCHANGE TRAFFIC CONTROL. VOL 4. PROGRAM MANUAL FOR MACROSCOPIC SIMULATION MODEL OF DIAMOND INTERCHANGE TRAFFIC OPERATIONS

A digital computer simulation model of traffic operations in a signalized diamond interchange complex has been developed and validated using field data. This program user's manual has been prepared to assist potential users of this simulation model program. The model is programmed is assembly language for a VARIAN 620/i minicomputer. Various key parameters chancterize the diamond interchange complex geometrics, demands, and signalization, which have their counterparts in computer program parameters that are modifiable by the user. Special worksheets have been developed and structured to assist the simulation model user in conveniently making program modifications to satify his requirements. The output performance measures of the model are given in terms of delay, in vehicle-minutes, and the number of vehicles processed by the model. /Author Modified Abstract/
