WHAT NETWORK SIMULATION (NETSIM) CAN DO FOR THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER

This article is the first of two describing a practical traffic engineering analysis tool developed by the FHWA Offices of R&D. The first article describes the model, what is required to use it, what it tells the user in return, where to use it, its limitations, and costs. The second article will describe an application of the model to an analysis of a signalized intersection by the Traffic Engineering Division of the Utah Department of Highways. An important application of the model described in the second article is the simulation of a phasing arrangement which could not be studied in the field because it was not permitted by a State law. /Authors/
