At the end of this course attendees will be able to:
- Understand key concepts for capacity analyses, including level of service, service measures, free-flow speed, peak hour factor, undersaturated x oversaturated conditions, etc.
- List strengths and limitations of the HCM methods
- Apply the HCM methods for planning level and operational analyses
- Determine the Level of Service of different road elements
- Use the Highway Capacity Software to analyze different road elements (freeways, highways, intersections, urban streets, interchanges, and alternative intersections)
- Understand the required inputs for HCS analyses and learn about common modeling mistakes
- Extract HCS reports and interpret performance measures
There are no prerequisites for this course.
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 for the hands-on problem presented in the course is optional to attendees.
A comprehensive workbook is provided for the lectures. The use of the Highway Capacity Software (HCS) is strongly recommended for the classes – a time-limited version can be provided to students upon request.
This course was specially designed for:
Engineers, planners, designers, managers and analysts who perform transportation studies and desire to obtain a solid understanding of the required tools and methods;
Public agency employees who either perform transportation studies or review studies submitted by contractors;
Professionals who want to build a solid foundation for exams such as PE or PTOE;
