Abstract

A model for assessing resident and workplace location on energy for car commute to work is dealt with in the paper. The paper consists of two parts : model building and assessing simplified location patterns. The model is composed of five submodels : location patterns, commute trip distribution, spatial distribution of commute trip density, road traffic speed and energy calculation. Three simplified location patterns are set to resident and workplace respectively, so nine sets of locations are put under assessment The study area is assumed to be circular. The location sets together with commute length distribution form respective spatial distribution of car commute trip density in the area The density is converted to traffic speed Car commuting energy is calc
