Highway Capacity Analysis Webinar Series

This webinar series presents lectures, software demonstrations and application examples on the Sixth Edition of Highway Capacity Manual (HCM6) procedures. Step-by-step instruction of the HCM methodologies will be provided for each analytical chapter. The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) implements and automates the HCM procedures.  

Each lecture will be followed by working example problems and a software demonstration using the HCS7 prototype. A comprehensive workbook is provided to include all slides. Three registration types are provided:

  • Entire Series
  • Freeways-focused (including overview, freeways, and highways) that covers all the material in the HCM6 Volume II on uninterrupted flow methods
  • Arterial-focused (including signalized and unsignalized intersections, urban streets, and ramp terminals) that covers all the material in the HCM6 Volume III on interrupted flow methods.

The series is organized as follows, with all presented from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET.

The registration for May 3-7, Jun 14-18, and Aug 2-6 are open, and registration is taking place here. After registration, you will need to send us an email and determine the date (the week) that you want to take the webinar.

HCS Hands-on Training

This workshop format training is developed for transportation professionals interested in developing hands-on experience in the use of HCS. Our experts will explore in detail the steps of a typical analysis in the HCS, from providing inputs and generating reports to advanced topics such as automatic freeway segmentation or analyzing complex elements such as interchanges and alternative intersections.

The registration for June 21-22 are open, and registration is taking place here. After registration, you will need to send us an email and determine the date (the week) that you want to take the webinar.

The HCS Hands-On Workshop consists of the following webinars:

  • Day 1 (1:00 – 5:00ET)Freeways (individual segments, facilities and travel time reliability) and Highways (multilane highways and two-lane highways)
  • Day 2 (1:00 – 5:00ET)Intersections (stop-controlled, roundabouts and signalized); urban streets (segments, facilities and travel time reliability); interchanges and alternative intersections

This training is developed for engineering and planning professionals with basic knowledge of highway capacity analysis and traffic engineering concepts who want to develop hands-on experience with HCS. Our experienced instructors will walk through the essential steps of typical capacity analyses, such as creating a new analysis for different facility types, reviewing currently developed HCS files, checking for input errors and interpreting HCS outputs for analysis purposes.
Attendees are expected to have basic knowledge of highway capacity analysis and traffic engineering concepts. Other requirements include:

  • Attendees must meet minimum technology requirements such as having a computer with a steady internet connection and access to basic applications such as Zoom and a PDF reader.
  • The use of HCS is required for the hands-on problems in the course. Time-limited versions of HCS may be provided to registrants.
  • For an optimal experience, we recommend the use of dual monitors to follow the instructor screen and work with the software simultaneously.
