Abstract : To provide a method for evaluating the future impact of ground traffic flow proposals for the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, a computer program was described and constructed which simulates the normal vehicle movement situation for a 'typical' six A. M. to six P. M. Area B duty day. The model uses traffic data collected in an origin and destination study performed in 1970 as input to the computer program. The base is depicted through a complex array of one and two-way streets with accompanying intersections.
