The LWR traffic model at a junction with multibuffers

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider the Lighthill-Whitham-Richards traffic flow model on a network composed by a single junction $J$ with $n$ incoming roads, $m$ outgoing roads and $m$ buffers, one for each outgoing road. We introduce a concept solution at $J$, which is compared with that proposed in [14]. Finally we study the Cauchy problem and, in the special case of $n \le 2$ and $m \le 2$, we prove existence of solutions to the Cauchy problem, via the wave-front tracking method.
