The parallelization of a highway traffic flow simulation
Proceedings. Frontiers '99. Seventh Symposium on the Frontiers of Massively Parallel Computation
This work implements and analyses a highway traffic flow simulation based on continuum modeling of traffic dynamics. A traffic-flow simulation was developed and mapped onto a parallel computer architecture. Two algorithms (the 1-step and 2-step algorithms) to solve the simulation equations were developed and implemented. They were then tested on a Cray T3E, a 3-D torroidal mesh with very fast inter-processor communication (IPC) times. Tests with real traffic data collected from the freewaydoi:10.1109/fmpc.1999.750600 fatcat:vfyajunprnefblzmtdi4yu3ili
