Sustain — A Model Investigating Sustainable Urban Structure and Interaction Networks
Immediately after the 1973 Energy Crisis there was a heightened interest in improved understanding and modelling of the interrelationships between urban development and transportation. Such an interest had been awakened already by the apparent neglect of longer term land use adjustments in demand assessments for urban freeways, which were stimulating rapid outward expansion of urban populations, re-introducing congestion as trip lengths increased. Although the resultant major boost in research and development funding did not last very long, progress continued in model formulation and application, especially in the comparative analysis by ISGLUTI (International Study Group for Land Use Transport Interaction) in Webster et. al. (1988). At the same time, politicians and auto-makers responded to increasing public awareness by steadily providing more fuel-efficient vehicles with improved emission standards.
