Just wondering - I have recently received an HCS update indicating a new version is coming out soon to implement new HCM 2010 calculations for signalized, unsignalized, and roundabout intersections.
Will Synchro 7 be patched for these new equations, or will these updates be held until Synchro 8 is released?
Among the changes are the ability to analyze Two-Way and All-Way stop-controlled intersections with more than two-lane approaches. This would be a great addition to Synchro as we currently have to add right-turn channelization or run the intersection in SimTraffic or Traffix to get a delay and LOS.
Version 8 will include signalized and roundabout methods. The unsignalized methods are being worked on and will probably be in a later build (free to those that have version 8). The TWSC methods are pretty close to the 2000 methods. The AWSC methods of the HCM will now include modeling of approaches with up to 3 lanes.
