# Assignment

Generally to apply the state dependent queueing
model to predict and control the performance of a roadway segment. We will
describe

a number of traffic design scenarios for which the queueing model

is appropriate.

Experiment 1: Compute Basic Performance Measures.
This experiment is intended to familiarize the student with the program
inputs/outputs and also demonstrate the nonlinear effects of congestion.
Experiment 2: Optimal Number of Lanes. This program
is intended to demonstrate the power of the model to optimize the number
of lanes N for a given highway segment.
Experiment 3: Optimal Input Flow Volume . Finally, we show that we can control the input volume
V of traffic so as to optimize the flow of traffic for a given highway
segment.
