AFM = Australian Fleet model
Vehicle emission simulation requires a high level of detail of the on-road fleet to account for the various engine, emission control and vehicle design factors that impact on vehicle emissions, energy use and fuel consumption.
The fleet model estimates total travel (vehicle kilometers traveled, accumulated mileage) for 40 vehicle classes and 31 vintage/age categories (i.e. 1,240 model classes) for individual base years (e.g. 2010-2050).
The software can output the modelling results in specific predefined formats, including COPERT Australia.
