Webinar: Improving the Reliability of Heavy Vehicle Parameters to Support More Accurate Traffic Modelling in Australia and New Zealand
  • Publication no: WEB-R609-19
  • Published: 9 December 2019

This webinar, presented on 9 December 2019, provides an overview of ways to more accurately model heavy vehicle movements during interrupted traffic flows in Australia and New Zealand.

It covers:

  • background and results of the Austroads project
  • heavy vehicle characteristics relevant to intersection capacity such as length and width, clearance space, acceleration and deceleration
  • heavy vehicle parameter development for traffic modelling software - SIDRA, LINSIG, VISSIM and AIMSUN, based on video survey and calibration.

The webinar was presented by Dr Young Li and TK Kim.
