  • This paper describes the graphical simulation of a traffic environment. The environment includes streets leading to an intersection, the intersection, vehicle traffic, and signal lights in the intersection controlled by different methods. The simulation allows for the study of parameters affecting traffic environments and the study of different control strategies for traffic signal lights, including conventional, fuzzy, and adaptive control methods. Realistic traffic environments are simulated including a cross intersection, with one or more lanes of traffic in each direction, with and without turn lanes. Vehicle traffic patterns are a mixture of cars going straight and making right or leftmore » turns. The free velocities of vehicles follow a normal distribution with a mean of the posted'' speed limit. Actual velocities depend on such factors as the proximity and velocity of surrounding traffic, approaches to intersections, and human response time. The simulation proves the be a useful tool for evaluating controller methods. Preliminary results show that larger quantities of traffic are handled'' by fuzzy control methods then by conventional control methods. Also, the average time spent waiting in traffic decreases with the use of fuzzy control versus conventional control.« less
  • In this paper we describe a Cartesian grid algorithm for modeling time-dependent compressible flow in complex geometry. In this approach problem geometry is treated as an interface embedded in a regular Cartesian mesh. The discretization near the embedded boundary is based on a volume-of-fluid approach with a redistribution procedure to avoid time-step restrictions arising from small cells where the boundary intersects the mesh. The algorithm is coupled to an unsplit second-order Godunov algorithm and is fully conservative, maintaining conservation at the boundary. The Godunov/Cartesian grid integration scheme is coupled to a local adaptive mesh refinement algorithm that selectively refines regionsmore » of the computational grid to achieve a desired level of accuracy. Examples showing the results of the combined Cartesian grid/local refinement algorithm for both two- and three-dimensional flows are presented.« less
  • This paper describes some adaptive techniques suitable for modeling high Mach number reacting flows. Two basic types of methods are considered: adaptive mesh techniques and front tracking. Numerical results are described using one of these methods, local mesh refinement, for a simple model for planar detonation. The computational results show the formation of Mach triple points in the detonation fronts and provide an initial step toward understanding the factors influencing the spacing. 10 refs., 30 figs.
