    The Year Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) defines a Queue as: "A line of vehicles, bicycles, or persons waiting to be served by the system in which the flow rate from the front of the queue determines the average speed within the queue. Slowly moving vehicles or people joining the rear of the queue are usually considered part of the queue.

Transport Engineering [Highway capacity and level of service] AAiT, Department of civil Engineering Page As illustrated in Figure (b), at a demand flow of 1, pc/h (a v/c ratio of / = ), PTSF is already at 64%.

This is for a highway with base, or nearly ideal, conditions. The capacity and level of service are affected by the composition of different types of vehicles in the stream, variation of traffic flow, traffic interruption, and lane distribution.

The number of traffic lanes, vehicular and driver characteristics, and one- or two-way traffic movements have a direct bearing on the lane or highway capacity.

Traffic capacity and traffic volume has same units, difference between the two is that traffic volume represents the actual rate of flow of the traffic and responds to the variation in the traffic demand, while capacity indicates a capability or maximum rate of flow with a certain level of service characteristics that can be carried by the road.

Transportation Research Board. Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service.; National Research Council (U.S.). Transportation Research Board. Committee on Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics. For example, the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) uses traffic density as the primary LOS measurement for uninterrupted flow situations (freeways and highways).

Traffic density also plays an important role in system-wide traffic performance evaluations and on-line traffic. the book is organized on five bases: the chronological phases through which the traffic engineering effort passes, the logical research steps, the parts of traffic analyses such as traffic demand and highway capacity, the tools of traffic engineering such as probability distributions, queueing theory, control theory, and physical analogies; and Cited by: Traffic flow theory and highway capacity.
