This article deals with traffic ow simulation in a single road via fluid dynamics approach. The Lighthill-Whitham-Richards (LWR) model is used to describe traffic ow in the road which is represented by density and average speed of vehicles. Numerical approximation of the LWR model formulated as scalar conservation laws is obtained by implementing finite volume method. Several test cases are presented...
