Modeling four-directional pedestrian flows Blue, Victor J ; Adler, Jeffrey L

By: Blue, Victor JContributor(s): Adler, Jeffrey LPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2000Description: nr 1710, s. 20-7Subject(s): USA | Pedestrian | Traffic flow | | Mathematical model | Simulation | Micro | 25Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1710Location: Abstract: The objective of this study is to explore the modeling of multidirectional pedestrian flows. The complex interactions between flow entities within m-directional space present challenges that cannot be readily handled by existing bidirectional flow models. A cellular automata microsimulation model for four-directional flow is prescribed. This model, built on previous bidirectional models developed by the authors, additionally seeks to manage cross-directional conflicts. Performance of this function in the simulation of unidirectional, bidirectional, cross-directional, and four-directional flows is presented. The applications extend to m-directional terminal facility design and to four-directional street corners, a vital component in any network model of pedestrians.
