See Table 25, compact only, for stall and aisle dimensions. Percent reversed: 0% for angle less than 90 degrees, 5% for 90 degrees, C max = 1500 vph. " in the laterll research that short-span column designs reduce capacity compared to long-span designs. With a typical 30' x 3D' short-span grid system, inbound capacity is reduced by at least 30%, and outbound capacity by at least 15%. Standard statistical theory was used to develop equations reflecting these variables. The TRRL found that the number of stalls in the system (or subsystem when there are multiple circulation routes) does not materially affect the flow capacity, except as it induces peak-hour volumes.

EtcYWhen these figures are combined with the ratio of parking spaces required per 1000 sq ft. which have also been published,14 a ratio of peak-hour volume as a percent of parking spaces can be determined for these land uses. Only in a very few cases do land uses generate peak-hour volumes equal to or in excess of the static parking capacity (denoted N) required for that use (Table 2-6). One exception is the special-event facility. which in most cases should be designed to fully "dump" in one hour or less.

While it is quite true that any gO-degree layout is more efficient in its use of the adjacent aisle, the larger turning bays required for twoway traffic in this particular layout counterbalance the efficiency advantage in the parking bays.
