Abstract

Ѕimulations are often used as an alternate way of performing experiments and analysis. Simulations imitate or simulate the operations of various types of real world facilities or processes. For that reason microsimulation models have been widely used in traffic engineering, especially in traffic management. While these simulation models can be advantageous to engineers, the models must be calibrated and validated before they can be used.  More accurate results are provided by model parameters calibration to local conditions. This paper presents microsimulation model VISSIM calibration to Belgrade local conditions, for intersections with permitted left turn. Model parameters which were calibrated are minimum gap time and standstill distance for standard urban traffic network. Necessary data for parameters calibration are collected by field researches. Model validation was done after model calibration by comparing simulation results and field research results.
