Analysis of Single-Lane Roundabout Slip Lanes Using SIDRA

  title={Analysis of Single-Lane Roundabout Slip Lanes Using SIDRA},
  author={Majed Al-Ghandour and William J. Rasdorf and Billy M. Williams and Bastian Schroeder},
Roundabout intersections, increasingly used in the U.S., sometimes incorporate slip lanes to facilitate right-turning traffic flow and reduce delay, thereby increasing capacity and safety. Performance of a single-lane roundabout with an adjacent slip lane is modeled with the SIDRA Intersection analysis tool for three types of slip lane: free-flow, yield, and stop, and is compared to having no slip lane. The gap acceptance-based assessment considers four experimental traffic percentage…

A Decision Analysis Tool: Experimental Analysis of Roundabout Slip Lanes under Unbalanced Traffic Volumes
This paper introduces a decision problem to evaluate when a single-lane roundabout incorporates a slip lane. It considers six origin-destination (O-D) traffic matrices that represent experiments of
Experimental Analysis of Single-Lane Roundabout Slip Lanes: Fuel Consumption and Emissions
Vehicular fuel consumption and emissions performance (carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO)) are examined experimentally within single-lane roundabouts with slip lane under yield, stop, and
Analysis of Fuel Consumption and Emissions at Roundabout with Slip Lane, Using SIDRA and Validation by MOVES Simulation
The SIDRA tool enables researchers and practitioners to model vehicle emissions at a project level. Vehicular fuel consumption and emissions performance (CO₂ and CO) are simulated within single-lane
Exploring Pedestrian Scramble Options in a Single-Lane Roundabout:
This study evaluates impacts of incorporating pedestrian scramble crosswalks on pedestrian and vehicle delays within a roundabout and results indicate scramble affects the rate of pedestrian-vehicle conflicts and roundabout average delays.
Impact Analysis of Headway Distributions on Single-Lane Roundabout Entry Capacity
A modified model is proposed to adjust the HCM 2000 model to produce a model that produces smaller relative error and rootmean-square deviation than the model itself, and it is believe that the modified HCM2000 model outperforms the H CM 2000 model.

Evaluation of Roundabout Capacity Models: An Empirical Case Study
AbstractBased on field data collected at nine roundabouts in Gold Coast, Australia, this paper evaluates the performance of the capacity estimation for single-lane roundabouts using analytical models
Are Dilemma Zone Protection Systems Useful on High Speed Arterials with Signal Coordination? A Case Study
The results indicated that, on average, there were 30%, 7% and 30% reductions in the number of rear-end, lane change and crossing conflicts when the AAW system was used.
Underground Roundabouts: Analysis of Several Layouts for A Case Study in Urban Area
This paper focuses on the transformation of 73 roundabouts in Victoria, Australia and finds that the decrease in all accidents was 40% and the reduction in injury accidents was 80%; Troutbeck observed a 74% reduction in Injury accidents following the transformed roundabouts.

Simulation experiments of a two-lane system show that the proposed FCA model is able to replicate decision-making processes and estimate the effect on overall traffic performance.


With increasing traffic through the years there has also been a considerable increase in vehicular emissions. Problems posed by environmental impacts of traffic are growing and are a challenge to
A review of gap-acceptance capacity models
Gap acceptance models apply to the analysis of minor movements at two-way stop and give-way sign-controlled intersections, entry streams at roundabouts and opposed turns at signalised intersections.
The effects on safety, time consumption and environment of large scale use of roundabouts in an urban area: a case study.
The study showed that details in the design are of decisive importance for road-users' safety and that the roundabouts in a Swedish city worked almost as good as they did shortly after the rebuilding.

Roundabouts and Sustainable Design
Roundabouts exhibit many of the characteristics of sustainable design: no power consumption by signal indicators; less pavement devoted to roadways; and lower vehicle energy use and emissions.
