A normative approach for planning. Simulation of residential growth scenarios in Luxembourg
The main objective of this communication is to present the results obtained within a PhD thesis (COSMELUX project, funded by FNR, Luxembourg, 2010-2014). The aim of the project is to define and assess different scenarios of residential growth in Luxembourg toward 2030. The simulations of residential development have been made by using MUP-City software (Tannier et al., 2012). First, the simulated scenarios have been assessed by the mean of accessibility measures (minimal distance to closest facility, number of facility within a certain range, diversity indicators…) computed with MUP-City. Then, the scenarios have been evaluated according to daily mobility indicators (number of kilometers by inhabitants, modal split, number of trips…). These indicators have been obtained via the simulation of individual daily mobility with the LUTI platform MobiSim (Antoni et al., 2011; Tannier et al., forthcoming).
