  1. Fundamental relations of traffic flow Transportation Systems Engineering

  2. Introduction • Fundamental relations • Time and space mean speed • Fundamental equation (q, k, v) • Fundamental diagrams (q, k, v) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  3. Mean speeds • Time mean speed • average of all vehicles passing a point over a duration of time • It is the simple average of spot speed • Expression for vt • vi spot speed of ith vehicle • n number of observations Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  4. Mean speeds • Time mean speed • Speeds may be in the form of frequency table • then vt • qi number of vehicles having speed vi • n number of such speed categories Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  5. Mean speeds • Space mean speed • average speed in a stretch at an instant • It also averages the spot speed • But spatial weightage instead of temporal Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  6. Mean speeds • Space mean speed - derivation • Consider unit length of a road • let vi is the spot speed of ithvehicle • let ti is the time taken to complete unit distance • ti=1/ vi • If there are n such vehicles, then the average travel time ts is given by Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  7. Mean speeds • Space mean speed - derivation • If average travel time is ts then • average speed vs is 1/ts • the harmonic mean of the spot speed • If speeds are in a frequency table Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  8. Mean speeds • Space mean speed • If speeds are in a frequency table • then vs • qi number of vehicles having speed vi • n number of such speed categories Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  9. Mean speeds • Relation between Vt and Vs • If SMS is vs TMS is vt and the standard deviation of speed is σ • Then • vt > vs sine SD cannot be negative • If all the speed are same, then vs = vt • Derivation (assignment: Refer notes) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  10. Mean speeds: Illustration Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  11. Mean speeds • Example 1 • If the spot speeds are 50, 40, 60,54 and 45, then find the TMS and SMS • Example 2 • The results of a speed study is given in the form of a frequency distribution table. Find the TMS and SMS Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  12. Fundamental relations • Relationship between q, k, v • Let there be a road with length v km • assume all vehicles are moving with v km/hr • Number of vehicles counted by an observer at A for one hour be n1 • By definition, number of vehicles counted in one hour is flow (q) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  13. Fundamental relations • Relationship between q, k, v • n1=q • Density is the number of vehicles in unit distance • n2=kv • But, n1=n2 • since all vehicle have speed v and the distance is v • Therefore q=kv Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  14. Fundamental diagrams • Follows fundamental relations • Also phenomenological • Flow-density (qk) • Speed-density (kv) • Speed-flow (qv) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  15. Fundamental diagrams • Flow-density (q k) curve Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  16. Fundamental diagrams • Flow-density (q k) curve • The relationship is normally represented by a parabolic curve • At jam density, flow will be zero because the vehicles are not moving. • There will be some density between zero density and jam density, when the flow is maximum. Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  17. Fundamental diagrams • Speed-density (v k) curve Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  18. Fundamental diagrams • Speed-density (v k) curve • Max. speed is free flow speed • Max. density is jam density • At zero density, speed is free flow speed • At jam density, speed becomes zero • Most simple assumption is a linear • Non-linear relationships also possible Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  19. Fundamental diagrams • Speed-flow (v q) curve Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  20. Fundamental diagrams • Speed-flow (v q) curve • Flow is zero either because there is no vehicles or there are too many vehicles so that they cannot move • At maximum flow, the speed will be in between zero and free flow speed Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  21. Fundamental diagrams • Combined Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  22. Relation between Vt and Vs • Derivation • Consider a stream of vehicles with a set of sub-stream flow q1, q2,… ... qi ,... qn having speed v1, v2 , ... vi, ... vn. • Fundamental relation between flow (q), density (k) and mean speed (vs) • Therefore for any sub-stream qi, the relationship is • Summation of all sub-stream flows is total flow q • Summation of all sub-stream density is total density k • Let f i denote the proportion of sub-stream density k i to the total density k (INCOMEPLETE) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  23. Relation between Vt and Vs • Derivation • Consider a stream of vehicles with a set of sub-stream flow q1, q2,… ... qi ,... qn having speed v1, v2 , ... vi, ... vn. • Fundamental relation between flow (q), density (k) and mean speed (vs) • Therefore for any sub-stream qi, the relationship is • Summation of all sub-stream flows is total flow q • Summation of all sub-stream density is total density k • Let f i denote the proportion of sub-stream density k i to the total density k (INCOMEPLETE) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  24. Space mean speed averages the speed over space. • If ki vehicles have vi speed, then space mean speed is • Time mean speed averages the speed over time, • Substituting in  • Rewriting the above equation and substituting in  , and then substituting in (INCOMEPLETE) Fundamental relations of traffic flow

  25. By adding and subtracting vs and doing algebraic manipulations, vt can be written as, • The third term of the equation will be zero because will be zero, since vs is the mean speed of vi . • The numerator of the second term gives the standard deviation of vi. • by definition is 1, Therefore (INCOMEPLETE) Fundamental relations of traffic flow
