A general purpose digital simulator and examples of its application, Part III: Digital simulation of urban traffic

by A. M. Blum
This part discusses use of the simulator for problems associated with urban traffic studies. Included are simulation methods for intersections and networks, vehicular characteristics and input, and the network traffic control mechanism. The general purpose simulator is used to write a general traffic program which is used with data cards specifying the geometry, signal settings, statistical distributions, and other details of the particular network selected for simulation.
