the relationshipt between densitiy and flow comes from the interaction
between vehicles. There are basically two components to that:
1) interactions in car following due to differing desired speeds (which
includes slow-downs and lane-changing). Unfortunately for your case, sumo
vehicles have the same desired speed by default so you will net see any
effect unless you change vType parameters. I recommend setting
2) Intersections. (i.e. slowdowns when flows merge on a motorway, lane
changing to take the exit, waiting at a traffic light or some other
intersections where right-of-way must be considered.
If you just insert default vehicles on a 3-lane street you will see neither
of these effects.
On a side node, SUMO alone is probably not the right tool to figure out the
maximum capacity of your roads. The value you will see depends on the
calibration parameters of the models and the default parameters may not fit
to the driver behavior in your city. I suggest you complement your research
with some real-world data.
