This course is for engineering and planning professionals with basic knowledge of highway capacity analysis and traffic engineering concepts who want to develop hands-on experience with the HCS.
Our experienced instructors will walk through the essential steps of a typical capacity analysis, 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.
- Understand the scope of HCM analyses
- Understand analysis inputs and interpret results
- Use the basics of Highway Capacity Software to perform HCM analyses
- Freeways (individual segments, facilities and travel time reliability) and Highways (multilane highways and two-lane highways)
Day 1 (1:00-5:00 ET)
- Intersections (stop-controlled, roundabouts and signalized); urban streets (segments, facilities and travel time reliability); interchanges and alternative intersections
Day 2 (1:00-5:00 ET)
