Effect of Capacity and Traffic Density of Vehicle Acceleration (Case Study on Trans Sulawesi Road) Lasusua District North Kolaka Regency
Putra, Abdi Wira
Realizing the problem, the writer needs to limit the problem, which will be limited are 1. Capacity of the Trans-Sulawesi road segment. 2. Traffic density and acceleration of trans-Sulawesi road vehicles.
Objectives To determine the effect of capacity and traffic density on the acceleration of vehicles passing a point on the road, the unity of time expressed in the characteristics of traffic flow that can affect each other, the higher the volume of traffic the speed will decrease and the density will increase.
The Results largest traffic volume obtained 3.153 SMP / hour with peak hour factor of 0.987. Speeds are obtained for each condition ie before entering a resistance of 3.643 m / sec, when through a resistance of 9.492 m / sec, and when passing by 5.059 m / sec. Acceleration value before entering obstacles with the time of obstacle occurs vehicle retardation equal to 15,27 m / second2, Traffic Density biggest on Monday 30 January 2017, before passing obstacle equal to 28, when through obstacle equal to 11, and after passing obstacle equal to 20. The total density of 59 SMP / hour/lane. The capacity of the Trans Sula Toll Road (c) is 2,005 SMP / hour and the maximum peak hour volume is 3,153 SMP / hour. Based on the calculation of the effect of capacity and traffic density on vehicle acceleration, we conclude that on the Trans Sulawesi road, it can still accommodate vehicles although sometimes during the day and peak hours there is often a slowing down of the vehicle.
