A study of thermal comfort in outdoor urban spaces in respect to increasing building height in Dhaka
(American International University Bangladesh, 2012-12-14)
Thermal environment of urban spaces plays a great role on the quality of life in a city. It directly affects people’s behaviour and usage of outdoor spaces. Therefore, an environmentally conscious urban design solution ...
RESPONSIVENESS OF MICROCLIMATE SIMULATION TOOL IN RECOGNISING DIVERSITY IN URBAN GEOMETRY
Recent studies have revealed that diverse urban geometry, as found in traditional urban areas, has positive consequences in ameliorating the urban microclimate in comparison to the more regular formal urban areas. The ...
IMPACT OF CANYON GEOMETRY UPON URBAN MICROCLIMATE: A CASE-STUDY OF HIGH-DENSITY, WARM-HUMID CLIMATE
Recent findings have demonstrated that microclimate inside urban canyons is largely controlled by its geometry. This study, intends to examine the impact of canyon geometry upon air and radiant temperature in a high density ...
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, ...
Effects of microclimate and human parameters on outdoor thermal sensation in the high-density tropical context of Dhaka
(Springer Nature, 2018-09-12)
A thermal comfort questionnaire survey was carried out in the high-density, tropical city Dhaka. Comfort responses from over 1300 subjects were collected at six different sites, alongside meteorological parameters. The ...
Analysis of microclimatic diversity and outdoor thermal comfort perceptions in the tropical megacity Dhaka, Bangladesh
The study has observed microclimatic conditions in residential, commercial and educational areas in Dhaka city. Comfort surveys were carried out along with microclimatic measurements. Findings suggest, urban forms that ...
