Talk Title
Transportation System Enginering and Modeling for Traffic Stream using Greenshield Model
Talk Abstract

In most developing countries,  most pressing problems are associated with the country's infrastructure and infostructure landscapes. The 2019 Traffic Index Report depicts that the Philippines has a traffic index of 193.59 or 12th in the world and 8th in Asia with the worst traffic conditions.  This paper presents a mathematical model utilized to account the Philippines circumferential highway around Manila's Epifanio de los Santos Avenue using the 5-year data. The Greenshield Model was explored considering the traffic value streams or model parameters jam density,  free-flow speed, and maximum flow. The model boundary conditions include density corresponding to maximum flow, and speed corresponding to maximum flow was identified, and the relationship of speed and density was accounted for using the macroscopic stream model.  On the basis of the findings of the analysis, the Level of Service (LOS) of the segments of EDSA understudy is under LOS which implies that traffic jam and worst traffic conditions occurred in 5 years. The results of the study should be considered by the transportation experts, engineers and urban planners. Further, other empirical studies and application of machine learning and forecasting and predictive models could be used to help improve and address related problems.
