Abstract:

VRCAMS is a first-generation, comprehensive, digital computer model for predicting the performance of vehicles and roads whose outputs can be combined for analysis. It is divided into five basic modules mobility-ride dynamics, traffic volumecapacity, structural analysis, vehicle movement, and maintenance analysis. All five modules draw from a common data base consisting of two files, vehicle data and road data. The model has been documented in a technical report.
