This two-day course provides beginning to intermediate computer lab training in SYNCHRO / SimTraffic10 software and the recently published 2010 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM 2010) for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. Working on a real-world project, students will use SYNCHRO to insert an aerial background, insert / modify roadways, input intersection geometrics, multi-modal traffic volumes (cars, trucks, peds, and bicycles) and signal timings to perform capacity analysis for signalized, unsignalized and roundabout intersections. In addition, students will use Synchro 10 to evaluate and develop optimal signal timing plans that reduce delays, congestion, and fuel consumption, and physical mitigation measures to improve oversaturated levels of service. The seamless integration of Synchro with SimTraffic, a microsimulation software, will be used to evaluate intersection operations and compare the differences between "isolated" Synchro and "network-wide" SimTraffic analysis. This course will also teach you how to review and understand the delay, level of service, and queuing analysis using both empirical analysis (Synchro) and micro-simulation (SimTraffic).
What You Will Learn
Using a real-world project in a computer lab class setting, students will learn how to develop a network and use the SYNCHRO 10 and SimTraffic 10 software. This includes inserting an aerial background, insert / modify straight and curved roadways, inputting intersection geometrics and pocket lengths, volumes (cars, trucks, peds, and bicyclists) and signal timings to perform capacity analysis for signalized, unsignalized and roundabout intersections.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for traffic engineers, planners, and technicians in both public agencies and private firms who are involved in the planning, operation and management of signal systems.
