Integrated pedestrian forecast model and detailed analysis of the pedestrian behaviour, Masdar, Abu Dhabi
Client: Masdar (the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company), in collaboration with: lead masterplanners, Foster and Partners, Project value: £100k Description: Development of a detailed pedestrian movement forecast model and assessment of the distribution of land use, density, transport nodes and public realm in the City of Masdar, a highly reputable development in Abu Dhabi, UAE. In this study an advanced segmental-angular model of the city of Masdar was weighed by origin-destination patterns to forecast not only the relative distribution of the pedestrian movement, but the likely volume of movement in different times of the year and day. The model was also extended to evaluate the detailed impact of construction process and implementation phases. The model was extensively used to assist the designers and the client to optimise the efficiency of the development at each stage and reduce environmental risks. The deliverables of the project included: final project report, a detailed pedestrian forecast model, functionality assessment of different scenarios, recommendation for the optimisation of the system and phasing strategy.
