Study on the Highway Speed Limit at the Days of Snow and Ice


Article Preview

In order to prevent traffic accidents caused by bad speed snow day weather and achieve the purpose of protection of highway traffic safety. Through the analysis of ice conditions, we identified of the rate-limiting model in the snow, snow, snow icing conditions and curve sections, we applied to the model and the calculation of mathematical solution and come to the conclusion of the speed limit which is recommended values at the days of snow and ice disaster conditions. In the practical application, it is convenient to get the speed limit under the necessary conditions through look-up the table of this article in order to ensure the safety of traffic on the road.
