ARCADY Training Manual
Ourston Roundabout Engineering has developed a new training manual for ARCADY (Assessment of Roundabout Capacity and Delay).
ARCADY (Assessment of Roundabout Capacity and Delay) has been developed over the last 20 years by TRL and is used for predicting capacities, queue lengths, delays (both queueing and geometric) and accident risk at roundabouts. ARCADY is a top-shelf operational analysis tool to aid traffic engineers in designing new roundabouts. It is especially useful for assessing the effects of modifying existing designs.
ARCADY has been successfully used to design and optimize thousands of roundabouts throughout the world. It has a host of satisfied customers including governments, multi-national organisations and universities. Its easy to use and intuitive user interface mean that it can also be used effectively by small consultancy companies. It can model both drive-on-the-left and drive-on-the-right roundabout systems, making it applicable to junctions in many countries.
Since the release of ARCADY 5 in 2000, ARCADY has been capable of modelling capacity and delay and accidents at mini-roundabouts. These important innovations are based on the results of major government-funded research programmes undertaken by TRL. The models are of the same form as those used for conventional roundabouts and make available to the designer logical, rigorous design assessment procedures for mini-roundabouts.
