AbstractThe main objective of the present paper is to predict the average delay values
for delayed vehicles at the adjacent entrance and exit gates combination of a
parking garage using a simulation package named STARSIM. Flow level,
number of lanes at each approach of the major road, number of lanes at the
entrance and exit gates, and proportion of parking vehicles from the major
road are taken as the most important factors that affect the performance of the
gates of the car park in term of average delay to be predicted in this paper.
These traffic and geometrical conditions are used to generate a range of delay
values, and the effect of these conditions on the performance of the entrance
and exit gates, in term of delay, is discussed and presented figuratively.
