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 ...
Outdoor thermal comfort and summer PET range: A field study in tropical city Dhaka
Urban microclimate has important consequences on the thermal sensation of pedestrians. However, the extent of this effect may vary as other parameters such as respondents’ personal factors, psychological and behavioural ...
Calculation of urban geometry parameters in an asymmetric street canyon: H/W ratio and SVF
Supplementary material for: Effects of microclimatic and human parameters on outdoor thermal sensation in the high-density tropical context of Dhaka
(International Journal of Biometeorology, SpringerLink, 2018-09-12)
Harmonious accordance of indoor-outdoor thermal comfort and building energy performance by ameliorating urban microclimate in different urban block types in tropical climate
(IC2UHI - International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Island, 2014-10-13)
This paper explores the effect of outdoor microclimatic environment upon indoor conditions for different urban block types in hot-humid climate. The main focus here is on courtyard patterns, considering its potentials for ...
Exploring the Effect of Micro-climate Data on Building Energy Performance Analysis
A limitation in the current research is most studies on energy performance of buildings concentrate on individual buildings while its interaction with neighbouring urban context remains largely unexplored. Buildings are ...
A Comparative Study of Sustainable Urban Forms: Compact City and Short Cycle Strategy
(AIUB Journal of Science and Engineering, 2011-12-12)
This paper aims to identify the urban form and design issues that are concerned with the sustainable development of a new settlement. Drawing on the theoretical literature, it recognizes eight key issues to achieve a ...
Effect of Canyon Geometry on Outdoor Thermal Comfort: A case-study of high-density, warm-humid climate
(PLEA (Passive and Low Energy Architecture), 2013-09-10)
A successful urban planning and design solution ought to present a comfortable setting for its pedestrians inside urban canyons, because it is fundamental to encourage a good quality urban life and promote health and ...
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, ...
