Impacts of rainfall weather on urban traffic in beijing: analysis and modeling

  title={Impacts of rainfall weather on urban traffic in beijing: analysis and modeling},
  author={Yuhan Jia and Jianping Wu and Yiman Du and Geqi Qi},
  journal={arXiv: Physics and Society},
Recently an increasing number of researches have been focused on the influence of rainfall intensity on traffic flow. Conclusions have been reached that inclement weather does have negative impacts on key traffic parameters. However, due to lack of data, limited work has been implemented in China. In this paper, the impacts of rainfall intensity on urban road traffic flow characteristics are quantified, based on the historical traffic data and weather data in Beijing, capital of China. The… 

Analysis of rainfall effects on road travel speed in Beijing, China

Although rainfall affects travel speed on different road classes to different degrees, few existing studies focus on the impacts of rainfall on different urban road classes. Utilising real-time

Estimation of the Effect of Rain and Incidents on Freeway Capacity and Free-Flow Speed

This research aims to examine the effect of incidents with lane closures and adverse weather conditions (medium to heavy rain intensity) on capacity and free-flow speed (FFS) of freeway segments.

Generalized Speed-Density Models for Urban Freeways under Rainy Weather
