Question

A vehicle queue is formed at an entrance to the toll plaza due to a malfunction of one of the toll booths. The malfunction is corrected after 30 minutes, at which time all the toll booths are fully operational. The following is known about the traffic and service rate at the toll plaza:

- Demand (vehicle arrival rate), constant during the entire time = 29 veh/min
- Normal toll processing rate (vehicle departure rate) = 34 veh/min
- Toll processing rate (vehicle departure rate) due to malfunction of a toll booth = 27 veh/min
- Queue duration = 42 minutes.

What is the total queue delay of all vehicles in the queue, in vehicle-minutes?

Answer #1

An auxiliary lane toll plaza exiting the North Luzon
Expressway currently has four toll
booths operating. Vehicles arrive at the toll plaza at an average
rate of 1,200 veh/hr
and at the booths, drivers take an average of 10 seconds to pay
their toll and accept
their change. Both the arrival and departure rates can be assumed
to be exponentially
distributed.
a. If the design utilization ratio, ρ for each toll booth should
not exceed 0.75, is the
4-toll booth...

Vehicles arrive at a toll booth starting at 6 AM at the rate of
λ(t) = 5 - 0.05t with λ(t) in veh/min and t in minutes after 6 AM.
The first operator processes cars at a rate of 3.5 veh/min from 6
AM until 6:15 AM when the person leaves because of illness. From
6:15 AM to 6:30 AM, no one is at the toll booth but a new operator
arrives at 6:30 AM and processes at the rate...

Queuing at Amusement Park Vehicle Entrance: Vehicles begin
arriving at an amusement park one hour before the park opens, at a
rate of 3 vehicles per min (assume D/D/1). The gate to the parking
lot opens 30 minutes before the park opens. If the total delay to
vehicles entering the parking lot is 4,056 vehicle-minutes,
A. How long after the first vehicle arrival will the queue
dissipate?
B. What is the average service rate at the parking lot gate?

Suppose you’re designing a bridge for vehicle traﬃc over the
Cache la Poudre River. Cars are expected to arrive at the central
toll plaza at a rate of 70 per hour. You will have four toll
booths, which can each process cars at a rate of 30 cars per hour.
Assume cars arrive into the toll plaza according to a Poisson
distribution and wait in queue until the next available toll booth
opens up. Assume car processing times are exponentially...

Given: Vehicles begin
to arrive at a park entrance at 7:45 A.M. at a constant rate of six
per minute and at a constant rate of four vehicles per minute from
8:00 A.M. on. The park opens at 8:00 A.M. and the manager wants to
set the departure rate so that the average delay per vehicle is no
greater than 9 minutes (measured from the time of the first arrival
until the queue clears).
Find: Assuming D/D/1 queuing, what is...

At 8:00 A.M. there are no vehicles in queue at a toll booth and
vehicles start arriving at a rate of ?(?) = ?. ? − ?. ?? ?. From
8:00 to 8:05 A.M. no vehicles are serviced, ?(?) = ? for ? ≤ ? <
?, and beginning at 8:05 A.M. vehicles are serviced at a rate ?(?)
= ?. ? ? − ? for ? ≥ ? min (?(?) and ?(?) are in vehicles/minute
and ? is in...

At the signalized intersection, the vehicles began to arrive
from 7:00 am (beginning of the traffic study) at the rate of 6
veh/min for 20 minutes, and declined to 1 veh/min. The traffic
signal is assumed to have an effective red and green only starting
from red at 7:00 am. The length of the effective green is 4 minutes
and effective red time is 3 minutes per cycle. The discharge rate
of the vehicles on effective green is 6 veh/minute....

Vehicles arrive at an entrance to a stadium. There is a single
gate (at which all vehicles must stop), where a stadium attendant
collects a parking fee. There are 20 vehicles waiting in a queue at
the stadium gate when it opens at 7:00 PM, at which time vehicles
arrive at a rate of 240 veh/h. If the time required to collect a
parking fee is 12 seconds and assuming D/D/1 queuing, (1) What time
does the queue dissipate and...

Vehicles arrive in a single approach for two consecutive cycles
at a signalized intersection. The signal has a 60 second cycle time
which consists of a 30 second green interval and a 30 second red
interval (ignore yellow interval). The arrival rates are assumed to
be constant in both cycles. The arrival rate was 1,080
vehicles/hour in the first cycle and it decreased to 720
vehicles/hour in the second cycle. Assume that all vehicles in the
queue formed on red...

???ALASKA AIRLINES: NAVIGATING CHANGE
In the autumn of 2007, Alaska Airlines executives adjourned at
