Résumé / Abstract
This paper presents a resolution scheme for the Lighthill, Whitham and Richards macroscopic traffic flow model. This scheme is based on a non-entropic solution using only shock waves and no fans, even in case of decreasing density discontinuity. An efficient algorithm for handling waves is proposed and possible extensions are suggested.Mots clés libres : continuum traffic model; shock wave; rarefaction fan; entropic solution.
