  1. Hi Rachel,

    Using plumbing as an analogy, all aspects of where the pipes should go, why they need to go there, and what their volumes and flow rates should or could be look like they’re covered by this series, but not the physics of the interactions between the pipes themselves and the characteristics of the different fluids flowing through them.

    I’m thinking specifically of vehicle swept path analysis within 3D models of transport infrastructure and what’s worth analysing and what isn’t. Does that fit within the scope of Modelling on the Move?

      Hi Kevin, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be, but it’s a bit late given the series is finished … but maybe something for a small grant application to one of the professional societies in conjunction with someone who knows about that side of things? Let’s discuss some point.
