Recommended Homework Problems – Week 9 CE 221 – INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING Instructor Problem 1. Consider a traffic stream of 1,000 vph consisting of 10% trucks, 3% buses, and 2% RVs moving over rolling terrain. What is the total number of equivalent passenger cars per hour in the traffic stream? 1215 pcph Instructor Problem 2. A new suburban facility is being planned. Planners estimate 2,520 vph in the peak direction, rolling terrain, and 10% trucks, 0% buses, 0% RVs. It will be an undivided highway with 6 access points per mile, 12-foto lanes, and 6-foot shoulders. The BFFS = 55 mph. How many lanes are needed to provide LOS C? With this number of lanes, what will be the peak period speed and density? 6-lanes, 51.9 mph, 20.7 pc/mi/ln Textbook Problem 2.5 – volumes, flow rates, average headways veh; 1078.9 vph & 3.34 sec/veh;
