Abstract

A portable, off-line, FORTRAN IV computer program for setting arterial signals to achieve maximal bandwidth is described. Special features of the program include automatically choosing cycle time from a given range, permitting the design speed to vary within give tolerances, selecting the best lead or lag pattern for left-turn phases from a specified set, allowing a queue clearance time for secondary flow accumulated during red, accepting user-specified weights for the green bands in each direction, and handling a simple network in the form of a three-artery triangular loop.
