Six regional settlement patterns: alternative configurations for energy-efficient settlement
P A Rickaby
Received 27 May 1981
Abstract. The first part of the paper describes in detail the construction of a configurational model of a regional settlement pattern. The model is based on empirical data, and is constructed to allow manipulation of the shape of the settlement pattern in energy studies. The second part describes five alternative regional settlement patterns. Each alternative pattern is a development of the original pattern, made in response to some theoretical argument about the shape of settlement patterns which make efficient use of energy in transport and/or in the servicing of buildings.
