Computer simulation model, DESC:Dynamic Evaluator of Signal Control is developped for the evaluation of signal controlled network. DESC is a macroscopic model which considers randomness of traffic flow, platoon dispersion, and gap acceptance and also simulates vehicle detectors'output. DESC evaluates on-line signal control strategies and finds the optimum on isolated, artery, and area control, both for under and oversaturated conditions.
