The burgess model = the bull's eye model = the concentric ring model. The sector model is the superior model and designed to work for more cities than just Chicago.

The idea of the central model is to organize the city in a circular pattern. The city center would be in one circle with lower class housing surrounding it; the inner suburb. Then the middle class housing would surround that followed by the upper class zone out to the limit of the commuting circle.

This model has been called simplistic and it doesn't allow for terrain since most major cities are port or river cites that becomes important.

What is the burgess land use model?

The Burgess model created by Ernest Burgess, which is also known as the concentric model is based on the idea that Residential values are highest in the center of a town or city. This is due to competition being high in the central parts of the settlement. This leads to high-rise, high-density buildings being found near the CBD, with higher class residential properties, sparse developments on the edge of the town or city.
