Dynamic Simulation for Sustainable Transportation System

Hassan M. Hassoon ALDelfi
Abstract—This research is intended to simulate the already developed mathematical model for the five means of transportation systems which are bicycle, water transportation, taxi, bus, and metro. The resulting ecological footprint effect is being used to reflect those means of transport on the environment. A simplified approach to those means is represented by bicycle sustainable impact (BSI). In order to testify this newly derived mathematical model, the equivalent effects of different transportation systems on the environment are represented. The simulation is applied to five randomly selected cities of different geographical locations. They are considered to optimize the sustainability and hence the Anti-Sustainability collectively for the existing transportation in those cities. The selected cities are Erbil (Iraq), Baghdad (Iraq), Maysan (Iraq), Dubai (UAE) and Glasgow (UK). The five randomly selected cities have different modes of transportation. Thus different Anti-Sustainable Impact (ASI) has been found. Conclusive remarks have been drawn accordingly to achieve safe and distinguished sustainable guidelines. High-quality power run metro system depicts higher Anti-Sustainable Impact, Those guidelines can be implemented in future traffic and transportation systems evaluations in any city.

Index Terms—Sustainable transportation, dynamic simulation, BSI, mathematical modeling, transportation systems anti-sustainability.
