Multiscale Coupled Urban Systems

The Multiscale Coupled Urban Systems project will create an integrated modeling framework comprising data curation, analytics, and modeling and simulation components that will equip city designers, planners, and managers to scientifically develop and evaluate solutions to issues that affect cities now and in the future.

The framework will focus first on integrating urban atmosphere and infrastructure heat exchange and air flow; building energy demand at district or city-scale, generation and use; urban dynamics and socioeconomic models; population mobility and transportation; and hooks to expand to include energy systems and water resources.
