Strategies for rapid congestion recovery using ramp metering

Jiang, Rui (2014) Strategies for rapid congestion recovery using ramp metering. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research investigated strategies for motorway congestion management from a different angle: that is, how to quickly recover motorway from congestion at the end of peak hours, given congestion cannot be eliminated due to excessive demand during the long peak hours nowadays. The project developed a zone recovery strategy using ramp metering for rapid congestion recovery, and a serious of traffic simulation investigations were included to evaluate the developed strategy. The results, from both microscopic and macroscopic simulation, demonstrated the effectiveness of the zone recovery strategy.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
