Abstract

Mathematical description of traffic stream flow has been the subject of extensive research during the past few decades. Although several traffic models have been proposed and tested against field data for uninterrupted flow, relatively little is known about the behavior of traffic when it is interrupted. A new mathematical model describing the traffic dynamics downstream of traffic signals and signalized links is presented. The existence and behavior of shock waves generated periodically downstream of a traffic signal is demonstrated and analytical expressions are derived for describing their propagation along the road.
