Padestrian Flow Behaviour along Sidewalks

Kumar, Gandem Anil (2015) Padestrian Flow Behaviour along Sidewalks. MTech thesis.



Pedestrian walking is a major mode of transportation in Indian cities and also effective mode of transportation for short trips. In this study pedestrian sidewalk data was collected from three locations in Rourkela city in India. The obtaining three locations data was bi-directional flow unsteady data and also collect uni-directional flow data from L.A.Hall with in the NIT Rourkela campus. These data was analyzed for finding pedestrian characteristics like speed, flow and density as well as to draw the fundamental diagrams. Pedestrian fundamental diagrams and pedestrian characteristics are depends on gender of the pedestrian, age of pedestrian and type of facilities (sidewalks, wide sidewalks and prescient’s). “ pedestrian characteristics, fundamental diagrams for uni-directional flow as well as bi-directional flow, comparison of pedestrian fundamental diagrams between uni-directional and bi-directional flow, capacity and level of service (LOS) for above three sections” was done in this study. Hypothesis testing was conducted for compare the pedestrian speed between different sections and different combinations was done in this study.
