Congestion, excess demand, and effective capacity in California freeways

Abstract

Fourth, recurrent congestion evolves over three phases: increased demand is first met at free flow speeds, until the demand exceeds maximum throughput and congestion starts; both flow and speed then decrease and occupancy increases; only after demand drops well below maximum throughput does occupancy decrease and speed increase until free flow is… (More)
