Number of Trucks on Passing Lane as a Function of Time for The speeds of the vehicles traveling on driving and passing lanes are calculated
using the output data generated. The ARENA simulation model gives the transfer times
for each lane. The average travel time for all the entities entering the driving lane is
calculated as 39.59 seconds, and the average travel time for all the entities entering the
passing lane is calculated as 35.26 seconds. Dividing total length simulated which was
3000 feet by these average transfer times gave the overall average speeds for each lane.
Average Speed on Driving Lane = 3000 ft / 39.59 sec = 75.77 ft/sec
Average Speed on Passing Lane = 3000 ft / 35.26 sec = 85.08 ft/sec 105
In the model, the speeds were assigned according to a normal distribution using
the averages and standard deviations given in Table 15. The speeds assigned for the
transporters on the driving lane were 88 feet/sec for 700 ft distance and 75 ft/sec for 2300
ft distance. The speeds assigned for the transporters o...
