Simulation of Land Use/Transportation Systems
City Planning and Transportation
3rd Cycle Studies
Lectures combining theoretical explanations with exercise solving and with conceptual and real-case discussions.
Provide students with a deep knowledge and with advanced R&D skills and competences on the subject of land-use/transport systems simulation.
Classic (four-step) transport model. First land-use/transport model: the Lowry model.
Urban dynamics models. Definition of stocks and flows, identification of loops, and construction of causality diagrams. Development of an urban dynamics model with the AnyLogic software.
Cellular automata models. Cell structures, cell states, and state transition rules. Development of cellular automata model with the CelLab software. Examples of advanced models: SLEUTH and MOLAND.
Multi-agent models. Agent behavior, interaction environments and events. Development of a multi-agent model with the AnyLogic software. Examples of advanced models: ILUTE and UrbanSim.
Calibration of land-use/transport models.
