Situation 3
A traffic accident occurred along the city road at 6:00am. The
flow rate on the expressway at this time of day was 46 vehicles
per minute. The freeway capacity is 65 vehicles per minute,
but it was reduced to 24 vehicles per minute due to the traffic
accident. The traffic was cleared by the MMDA after 20
minutes.
4. Determine the max. length of the queue before the
blockage was removed.
5. Determine the time that the vehicles waited for the long
queue before the blockage was cleared.
6. What time was the queue cleared?

15 minutes.
8. Find the probability that at most 8 customers will arrive in
30 minutes.

9. Trucks begin to arrive at a truck weighing station at the
entrance of South Superhighway (with a single scale) at
6:00am at a time varying rate of (t) = 4.3 - 0.22t where
(t) is in veh/min and t is time in minutes. The departure
rate is a constant 2 veh/min (time to weigh a truck is 30
seconds) When will the queue that forms will be cleared?

elasticity is 180 MPa and whose subgrade modulus is 40
MPa?
