Abstract

SCENE is a model of vehicle movement at car-park entrances and exits. The verification, validation and application of SCENE determine its suitability for use by transport professionals. Verification determines if the model is performing as it was designed to do. SCENE has been verified by comparing its outputs with analytical models. Validation indicated if the model can replicate real-world situations. Validation has been carried out using a comparison of delay measures collected at the Mountain Gate Shopping Centre, Melbourne, Australia, and the simulation model outputs. Finally, the efficiency of different entrance types were assessed, using the model's predictions. It was concluded that the simplest arrangement, combined exit and entrance lane, always incurs the greatest average delay to the whole system. Exits with separate lane for left-turn and right-turn vehicles are generally the more efficient.
