Abstract: In Most Of Developing Countries, The Traffic Is Heterogeneous In Nature Consisting Of Wide Variety Of Vehicles Having Different Dynamic And Static Characteristics. Passenger Car Unit (PCU) / Passenger Car Equivalent (PCE) Values Show A Vital Job In Changing Over Heterogeneous Traffic Stream Into Comparable Homogeneous Traffic, Which Comprises Of Traveller Vehicles As It Were. PCE Values Are Vital In Rush Hour Gridlock Stream Investigations. This Paper Reviews The Previous Researches Carried Out About The Estimation Of Passenger Car Equivalents With Different Performance Measures At Mid-Block Sections And Summarizes PCE Variation With Percentage Of Trucks And Flow Rates In The Tabular Form.
Keywords: Heterogeneous, Passenger Car Equivalent, Mid-Block Sections.
Scope of the Article: Network Traffic Characterization and Measurements
