DEVELOPING MICROSCOPIC SIMULATION MODEL ON RING ROAD 111 BETWEEN ANSATIE AND KIRKONKYLnformation

KEHA III:N MIKROSIMULOINTIMALLIN KEHITTAMINEN VALILLE ANSATIE - KIRKONKYLnformation

In this study, microscopic simulation was looked upon as a traffic modelling method. Simulation applications were carried out using a traffic simulation software, HUTSIM. The software has been developed at the Helsinki University of Technology. It's operational principles and ap-plicability to microscopic simulation of traffic on high-class dual carriageways were evaluated. HUTSIM's operation is based on interactions between modelled objects of infrastructure and vehicles. Each vehicle's dynamic status is modelled several times per second. The most essential submodels are those which regulate lane change, platooning and acceleration/deceleration. Modelling a part of Ring Road 111, the outer ringroad in the metropolitan area of Helsinki, was an important part of the study. The modelling included both the present state and the planned improvements. The traffic volumes of 1998 were estimated based on flied observations. Forecasts of the traffic volumes in the future were made in accordance with estimates provided by the Finnish Road Administration (Finnra). This study has been granted European Union finan-cial support.
