  • Abstract

In this paper, we apply the discontinuous Galerkin method with Lax-Wendroff type time discretizations (LWDG) using the weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) limiter to solve a multi-class traffic flow model for an inhomogeneous highway, which is a kind of hyperbolic conservation law with spatially varying fluxes. The numerical scheme is based on a modified equivalent system which is written as a "standard" hyperbolic conservation form. Numerical experiments for both the Riemann problem and the traffic signal control problem are presented to show the effectiveness of these methods.
