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 urban form and travel demand configuration. RECATS includes interactive models for global peak in oil production, development scenarios for alternative or bio-fuels, and fuel rationing or supply management. On the transport side, RECATS allows the user to specify the distance, mode, and frequency matrix which has been determined for a given urban form using standard transport modelling. RECATS was applied to a case study in which four different urban development forms for Christchurch, New Zealand were simulated. Results show that all urban forms would lose and/or change trips according to the land use-transport system configuration options, but the risk to activities would be very different for different future cities.

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 ...
Assessing the risk to suburban activities associated with transport energy availability as a function of urban form Dantas, A.; Krumdieck, S.; Saunders, M. (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2006)This paper describes method to model the energy reliance of transport activities within a suburb. The method employs risk analysis techniques to determine the vulnerability of suburban developments to a fuel shortage event ...
