TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING-TRAFFIC SIGNALS"

Recent analysis at an approach to pre-time signalized intersection indicate that the volume-to-capacity ratio (v/c) is 0.8, htat saturation flow rate (s) is 1600 vehicles/hour, and the effective green time is 50 seconds. If the average delay, assuming D/D/1 is 11.25 seconds per vehicle, determine the arrival flow rate (vehicles/hour) and the cycle length.

Step 1

Given data:

The volume to capacity ratio (v/c) is 0.8.

The saturate flow rate (s) is 1600 vehicles/hour.

The effective green time (gi) is 50 seconds.

The average delay is 11.25 seconds per vehicle.

Step 2

The departure rate is given by,
