Abstract

This paper performs the numerical solution of a macroscopic multilane traffic flow model based on a linear density-velocity relationship. A multilane traffic flow is modeled by a system of nonlinear partial differential equation appended with initial and boundary conditions reads as an initial boundary value problem (IBVP). We present numerical simulation of the IBVP by a finite difference scheme named Lax-Friedrichs scheme and report on the stability and efficiency of the scheme by performing numerical experiments. The computed result satisfies some well known qualitative features of the solution.
