URBAN FUEL ECONOMY: AN ALTERNATE INTERPRETATION OF RECENT COMPUTER SIMULATION CALCULATIONS

Estimates of the effect of different traffic control scenarios on vehicular fuel consumption in an urban network were obtained in a recent report using detailed computer simulation. In the present work it is shown that these computer simulation results are consistent with a previously developed model of fuel consumption in urban traffic systems derived by conducting experiments in street traffic.
