In this paper, congestion dynamics along crowded freeway corridors are modeled as a conservation law with a source term that is continuous in space. The source term represents the net inflow from ramps, postulated here as a location-dependent function of the demand for entering and exiting the corridor. Demands are assumed time-independent, which is(More)
This paper shows that a wide range of stochastic extensions of the kine-matic wave model tend to the same parameter-free expression for the probability of congestion at a given time-space point. This is shown for white noise initial density with deterministic and stochastic fundamental diagram in the case of Riemann problems and the bottleneck problem. It(More)
