General constrained conservation laws. Application to pedestrian flow modeling.

Abstract : We generalize the results on conservation laws with local flux constraint obtained in [1, 9] to general flux functions and nonclassical solutions arising for example in pedestrian flow modeling. We first define the constrained Riemann solver and the entropy condition, which singles out the unique admissible solution. We provide a well posedness result based on wave-front tracking approximations and Kruzhkov doubling of variable technique. We then provide the framework to deal with nonclassical solutions and we propose a "front-tracking" finite volume scheme allowing to sharply capture classical and nonclassical discontinuities. Numerical simulations illustrating the Braess paradox are presented as validation of the method.
