Impact of urban geometry on indoor air temperature and cooling energy consumption in traditional and formal urban environments
(Ecohouse Initative Ltd., 2019-04-10)
This study explores the effect of outdoor microclimatic environment on indoor conditions in a tropical warm-humid climate. An indoor air temperature and building energy performance analysis is carried out for the real ...
USE OF MICROCLIMATE MODELS FOR EVALUATING THERMAL COMFORT: IDENTIFYING THE GAPS
(CISBAT - International Conference on CLEANTECH FOR SMART CITIES & BUILDINGS, 2015-09-09)
The study identifies the gap between actual thermal sensation and theoretical comfort calculated through simulated microclimate data in different urban configurations in a tropical, high-density, megacity: Dhaka. The ...
Understanding ENVI-met (V4) model behaviour in relation to environmental variables
(PLEA (Passive and Low Energy Architecture), 2017-07-03)
A parametric analysis is carried out to understand how ENVI-met (V4) responds to the following aspects which form the basis of understanding the model’s behaviour: i) canyon aspect ratio, ii) cloud cover, iii) orientation, ...
Microclimatic modelling in assessing the impact of urban geometry on urban thermal environment
Diversity in urban geometry can create significant variation in microclimatic conditions. Especially, in tropical warm-humid context, deep urban canyons with variable building heights perform better than uniform canyons, ...
