Who should attend.
This is the key training course for anyone whose work involves the precise modelling of traffic signal junctions, individually or in networks. Accurate LinSig modelling is fundamental to traffic signal design, transport assessments for development, and detailed network studies where traffic signal junctions are a major determinant of transport outcomes.
Delegates are expected to have a basic understanding of how traffic signals work and know what is meant by terms such as phase, stage, intergreen, saturation flow and capacity. This and much more can be gained by attending the JCT ‘Introduction to Traffic Signals’ course, which is normally held in advance of each LinSig Workshop, and can be attended as part of a discounted training bundle.
Since 1985, LinSig has been the industry standard modelling software for traffic signal design and assessment. In recent years it has become widely used for complex multiple junctions and small networks. With the release of Version 3 in 2009 these capabilities are extended to larger networks, with matrix estimation and delay based assignment. There are also key improvements for individual junctions including full pedestrian modelling.
This three day workshop is key training for anyone new to LinSig who needs to produce efficient and accurate modelling as part of traffic signal design, transport assessments or network studies. The workshop is equally aimed at people with experience in transport modelling, traffic signals, or earlier versions of LinSig, who wish to hone their existing skills, ensure correct applications, and be well placed to authorise or audit other people’s work.
The course involves extensive computer usage and covers the following topics:
The number of CET days will be allocated by the supervising civil engineer of each attendee. The standard course duration is three days, with an appropriate 3 days accreditation.
