A Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory Numerical Scheme for a Multi-Class
Traffic Flow Model on an Inhomogeneous Highway
P. Zhang, S. C. Wong, and C.-W. Shu
As a new attempt in solving hyperbolic conservation laws with spatially
varying fluxes, the weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) method is
applied to solve a multi-class traffic flow model for an inhomogeneous
highway. The numerical scheme is based upon a modified equivalent system that
is written in a `standard' hyperbolic conservation form. Numerical examples,
which include the difficult traffic signal control problem, are used to
demonstrate the effectiveness of the WENO scheme.
