    • Analysis of the truck trip generation characteristics of supermarkets and convenience stores 

      Asuncion, J.; Page, S.; Murray, R.; Krumdieck, S. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      Transport engineers and urban planners use truck trip generation as one of the tools to identify the effects of trucks on urban congestion, pollution, safety, and the strain on the road network. Truck trip rates for ...
    • Curve Advisory Speeds in New Zealand 

      Page, S.; Stewart, P.; Gu, J.; Ellis, A.; Henderson, R.; Cenek, P.; Koorey, Glen (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2002)
      This research project investigated the use of curve advisory speed signs in New Zealand. A literature review identified key issues to examine. Current traffic behaviour at the location of curve advisory speed signs was ...
    • Design and implementation of a community based sustainable development action research method 

      Krumdieck, S.; Dale, M.; Page, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      Local community groups have been forming around taking action on the issues of Peak Oil and Climate Change. People perceive a risk to their security and are alarmed by the lack of action at the government level. Sustainability ...
    • An Ecological Planning Approach to Community Based Sustainable Development 

      Dale, M.; Krumdieck, S.; Page, S.; Mulligan, K.; Rendall, S. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2008)
      This paper outlines a participatory community planning methodology with the aims of (1) providing the facts about Peak Oil, Global Climate Change, Electric Power System, (2) help community members explore their individual ...
    • Fuel Retail Management System 

      Page, S.; Rendall, S.; Krumdieck, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2008)
      What will happen when transport fuel supply falls short of demand? If you are a Mechanical Engineer, this is an ideal innovation space, an important situation where a solution does not yet exist. Our conceptgeneration, ...
    • Local Area Transport Energy Evaluation (LATEE), New Zealand Warrant of Fitness Data and VKT Analysis Mapped to Census Unit AreasMethod Description and Validation 

      Rendall, S.; Page, S.; Krumdieck, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
      A method to evaluate the household energy use for personal transport and assign that information to geospatial locations has been developed by the Advanced Energy and Material Systems Lab research team at the University ...
    • Retro-analysis of liquid bio-ethanol and bio-diesel in New Zealand 

      Krumdieck, S.; Page, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
      This paper uses a new approach of retro-analysis. Typically policy is informed by forward-looking analysis of potential for alternative energy technologies. But historical knowledge of energy and processing requirements ...
    • Risk of energy constrained Activity-transport systems (RECATS) 

      Dantas, A.; Krumdieck, S.; Page, S. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2007)
      A long-term strategic planning tool called RECATS© is introduced. It explores the link between urban form and susceptibility to fuel shortages in order to quantify a risk factor at a queried year in the future for a given ...
    • TACA Sim: a survey for adaptability assessment 

      Krumdieck, S.; Watcharasukarn, M.; Page, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)
      Uncertainty of future fuel supplies and a requirement to reduce green house gas emissions are two pressures that may cause significant travel behavior change in the long-term. Understanding how people can change to carry ...
    • Transitionscape: Generating Community-Based Sustainable Transport Intiatives 

      Dale, M.; Krumdieck, S.; Page, S.; Mulligan, K. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2008)
      This paper gives a brief outline of the means by which the TransitionScape methodology, a toolkit for enabling communities to generate viable action towards becoming Transition Towns, can facilitate the development ...
    • Travel adaptive capacity assessment for particular geographic, demographic and activity cohorts. NZ Transport Agency research report 486 

      Krumdieck, S.; Page, S.; Watcharasukarn, M. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      Transport infrastructure and network planning must now consider oil shocks and future demand growth for more energy efficient transport modes. However, data and models for this type of fuel reduction planning are not ...
    • Urban form and long-term fuel supply decline: A method to investigate the peak oil risks to essential activities 

      Krumdieck, S.; Page, S.; Dantas, A. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)
      The issue of a peak in world oil supply has become a mainstream concern over the past several years. The petroleum geology models of post-peak oil production indicate supply declines from 1.5% to 6% per year. Travel ...
    • VOILA! A new measure of oil vulnerability for cities 

      Rendall, S.; Page, S.; Krumdieck, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
      Oil price shocks and supply disruptions have the potential to adversely affect automobile-dependent personal transport systems. This places users at risk if they are unable to access their activities without economic or ...
