DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF INTRAS, A MICROSCOPIC FREEWAY SIMULATION MODEL. VOLUME I. PROGRAM DESIGN AND PARAMETER CALIBRATION

The series of volumes documents the work performed to adopt a freeway simulation model for studying freeway incidents. The resulting program, INTRAS (Integrated Traffic Simulation), is a vehicle-specific time-stepping simulation designed to realistically represent traffic and traffic control in a freeway and surrounding surface street environment. This volume describes the detailed capabilities of INTRAS and its structural and procedural attributes. The calibration of traffic descriptive parameters are also presented herein. This volume is the first in a series.
