Abstract

There are many applications of queuing theory in traffic flow analysis, especially in traffic signal control and dynamic traffic assignment. It is proved to be appropriate to describe the traffic performance by using the queue model. In this paper we first summarize how the queuing models are useful at signalized junctions. Then we use the vertical queuing method to analyze the dynamic queuing process of vehicles. We will focus on the travel time from entrance to exit in the link and give a new expression for delay which will be divided into four parts, the stopping loss, starting loss, discharging time and stopping time. The detail calculating formulas for each part wilt be presented.
