Acquiring fundamental knowledge on the traffic flow, its characteristics, basic indicators of traffic flow and procedures for their measurement and calculations, regularities and relations occurring in a traffic flow and the procedures for the analysis. Calculating a model for dependency presentations between fundamental parameters of a traffic flow in dependence on technical and exploitation road characteristics. Educational objective is also to obtain basic knowledge necessary for investigating the conditions of traffic flows in a road and street network in the fields of planning, managing and designing the traffic infrastructure.
Application of acquired knowledge for analysing traffic flow on roads, intersections and road facilities depending on their technical and exploitation characteristics, i.e. defining specificities of a traffic flow and determining characteristic parameters necessary for evaluating traffic flow conditions. Application of the acquired knowledge in the traffic flow theory is other areas dealing with the problems in planning and constructing traffic infrastructure, as well as traffic management in the road and street networks.
Movement of individual vehicles, basic parameters of a traffic flow, vehicle flow, density of a traffic flow, velocity of a traffic flow, travelling time, unit travel time, vehicle space mean intervals, Significant characteristics of a traffic flow, complexity of a traffic flow, general conditions of a traffic regime, content and structure of a traffic flow, non-uniform vehicle flow, relations between basic parameters in a traffic flow, empirical models of interdependency of the basic parameters in a traffic flow, mathematical models for describing the traffic flow, movement of an organized group of vehicles.
Lectures, auditory and computing practice. At practice, students will analyze parameters of a traffic flow in real conditions. Practical – computing part of the course can be passed by taking the partial examination.
