CAE419 Introduction to Transportation Engineering and Design Semester Fall 2017 Homework 5: Intersection Control and Signal Timing Design Solution 1 . PHF = 350 + 369 + 414 + 427 4 427 = 0.913 2. (a) Compute the ratios of the approach flows to saturation flow rates for each of the three phases, Phase A Phase B Phase C v 470 42 500 28 130 250 420 480 s 2400 1300 2400 1300 1300 1300 2400 2400 v/s 0.196 0.032 0.208 0.022 0.100 0.192 0.175 0.200 (b) Then, Y for each phase is determined as Y A = 0.208 Y B = 0.192 Y C = 0.200 Y = 0.208 + 0.192 + 0.200 = 0.6 The lost time per phase is 4 seconds, thus the total lost time is L = 3 × 4 = 12 sec Therefore, by the Webster model, the optimal cycle length can be get as C 0 = 1.5 L + 5 1 Y = 1.5 × 12 + 5 1 0.6 = 57.5 sec ,use 60 sec (c) Determine the effective green time for each phase, g A = V A V A + V B + V C ( C 0 L ) = 500 × ( 60 12 ) 500 + 250 + 480 = 19.51 19 sec g B = V B V A + V B + V C ( C 0 L )= 250 × ( 60 12 ) 500 + 250 + 480 = 9.76 10 sec g C = V C V A + V B + V C ( C 0 L )= 480 × ( 60 12 ) 500 + 250 + 480 = 18.73 19 sec 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
