Alternative mobility and alternative routes in the Sheffield City Region

This project analysed the main traffic routes in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) and compared them to the optimal routing of electric vehicles and the decreased volumes expected by the progressive adoption of alternative mobility means (e.g. electric bikes).

The application of Agent-Based Simulations for risk assessment and management processes related to natural hazards.

This project focuses on using a relatively new, simulation-based technique called Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) to model the behaviour of individuals and aggregated agents (e.g. government, regulatory authorities etc.) to gain insights into the higher-order effects.

DecarboN8 – an integrated network to decarbonise transport

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2018 highlighted the need for urgent, transformative change, on an unprecedented scale, if global warming is to be restricted to 1.5C. The DecarboN8 project will develop a new network of researchers, working closely with industry and government, capable of designing solutions which can be deployed rapidly and at scale.

Quantifying Evapotranspiration from Urban Green Infrastructure

This project explores 3 experimental methods to infer and quantify evapotranspiration (ET) from a set of green roof test beds, each with a varied vegetation/substrate combination. The aim of the project is to find suitable techniques that can be reproduced to measure ET in a SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) context within urbanised areas.

Urban Productivity & Spatial Patterns Across Scales – A Multi-Scale Exploration of Urban Networks and Their Hierarchical Configurations

Understanding the nuances at play across different spatial scales is of crucial importance when considering urban economic-energetic size-cost performance, specifically when longer-term consequences are considered. Through the application of an allometric understanding of cities, this project offers a more nuanced narrative highlighting the interplay of urban productivity and spatial configurations of human interactions across scales.
