Abstract

The mathematical description of the complex traffic flow system for the purpose of characterizing as well as predicting the behaviour of traffic is referred to as Traffic flow modelling. Traffic stream models serve as the basic building blocks of numerous number of the traffic flow models. Traffic stream models point out the underlying relationships among the three basic traffic flow variables i.e speed, flow and density. Understanding the traffic flow variables, their interrelationships and techniques to model traffic are very vital in the planning, design and operation of transportation systems. Various research papers have been published proposing different traffic stream models. Planning of road transport infrastructure is a complicated process. One of the main issues is determining the design elements of road infrastructure (road type and number of traffic lanes, cross-sectional profile, etc.). When designing of roads takes place, parameters from the international literature are considered, containing values derived empirically from local data on traffic flow (mostly from northern American cities). The motive of this project is to explore traffic flows in order to develop a model which will allow scientifically exact description of traffic flows on the National Highway in J&K. Study of basic parameters of traffic flow includes the selection of road location, survey time, traffic survey, analysis of video recordings, as well as statistical analysis and calculation of basic parameters of traffic flow. The project will be conducted on the National Highway under heterogeneous traffic conditions and in this manner the basic parameters of traffic flow will be derived. These parameters will be used to develop diagrams of relations between speed, traffic density and volume, resulting in cumulative functions of traffic flow parameters for the traffic network. This will allow me to develop some new equations which will enable theoretical determination of flow volume, speed and density for a prescribed road. Using these equations I can develop a model for the National Highway (NH- 44).
