The capacity drop forms a major reason why the prevention of congestion is targeted by traffic management, as lower capacities are detrimental to traffic throughput. Various reasons describing the dynamics behind the capacity have been described, however one of these, reaction times, has had less explicit attention when modelling on a...

Continuum traffic flow models are essentially nonlinear hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations. Except for limited specific cases, these systems must be solved numerically. Mathematical structure of continuum models can be different for each class of models. As a result, suitable numerical schemes for some classes may not be...

Since the beginning of this millennium many multi-class continuum traffic flow models have been proposed. We present a set of qualitative requirements for this type of models, including nonincreasing density-speed relations and anisotropy. The requirements are cast into a framework that applies a generalised deterministic multi-class kinematic...

In this contribution a model-based analysis of the application of bounded acceleration in traffic flow is considered as a cause for the capacity drop. This is performed in a Lagrangian formulation of the kinematic wave model with general vehicle specific characteristics. Unconstrained overtaking is presumed, which allows a demonstration to be...

An efficient simulation method for two-dimensional continuum pedestrian flow models is introduced. It is a two-dimensional and multi-class extension of the Go-dunov scheme for one-dimensional road traffic flow models introduced in the mid 1990’s. The method can be applied to continuum pedestrian flow models in a wide range of applications from...

Consistent definitions of important variables in pedestrian flow dynamics are proposed. They are based on the definition of similar variables for road traffic flow from the 1960's by Edie. The definitions are extended to include multi-class flows where pedestrians move in different directions or have different characteristics. The new...

We propose and analyze a generic multi-class kinematic wave traffic flow model: Fastlane. The model takes into account heterogeneity among driver-vehicle units with respect to speed and space occupancy: long vehicles with large headways (e.g. trucks) take more space than short vehicles with short headways (e.g. passenger cars). Moreover, and...

80 years ago, Bruce Greenshields presented the first traffic flow model at the Annual Meeting of the Highway Research Board. Since then, many models and simulation tools have been developed. We show a model tree with four families of traffic flow models, all descending from Greenshields' model. The tree shows the historical development of...

This paper deals with the optimal allocation of routes, destination, and departure times to members of a crowd, for instance in case of an evacuation or another hazardous situation in which the people need to leave the area as quickly as possible. The generic approach minimizes the evacuation times, considering the demand dependent waiting times...

How to model and simulate traffic flow including different vehicles such as cars and trucks? This dissertation answers this question by analyzing existing models and simulation methods and by developing new ones. The new model (Fastlane) describes traffic as a continuum flow while accounting for different types of vehicles. It is reformulated in...

In the last decade many multi class kinematic wave (MCKW) traffic ow models have been proposed. MCKW models introduce heterogeneity among vehicles and drivers. For example, they take into account differences in (maximum) velocities and driving style. Nevertheless, the models are macroscopic and the ow is modeled as a continuum flow, without...

Dynamic Traffic Management (DTM) aims to improve traffic conditions. DTM usually consists of two steps: first the current traffic is estimated, then appropriate control actions are determined based on that estimate. In order to estimate and control the traffic, a suitable traffic flow model that reproduces the properties of traffic well must be...
