Summary
Purposes object is give students a necessary theoretic piece of knowledge about theory movement single conveyances and the stream of traffic, from of which issue design principles projection communication and junctions, if need be by other transport for static and dynamic components transport. Contains they are as well methods obtaining needed traffic data forms traffic survey and their projection into the designed period prognostic method. From streams of traffic they are derived demand the capacitive reckonings for intercrossing road space and junctions. The object acquaint with tenet the transportation solution territory built-up and blank and organization, regulation and traffic control. Attention is sight on specifies proposal town roads, junctions and coexistence with further sorts transport.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Students acquires survey about of the development traffic line and transport,
current fission and function single kind transport with a view to roads. Master knowledges about variability and regularity traffic events on roads, needed for scheduling, projection buildings, organization and steerage on the communications network in the built-up and a blank territory.
