 Content
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } This is a part of Module 8, Modelling & Analysis of Stochastic Processes of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module. In this course students learn about the behaviour of traffic flow from theory, and also by simulation of traffic flows in the tutorials. Macroscopic flow characteristics as speed, flow and density, microscopic characteristics as speeds and headways play an important role as well as traffic flow phenomena as queuing, shockwaves, and delays. As a prerequisite for simulation, the goal is to learn about the principles of a so-called micro-simulation to be able to conduct a simulation study focused on traffic operations.   Additional information: Preferably, this course should be followed in parallel with the course Project Simulation of Traffic Flows.
