Urban Microclimate Simulation with Humidity & Solar Radiaton
In this video we show an urban housing project simulated with wind, moisture and solar radiation. The central fountain, trees, green roofs and walls are humidity sources, completely calculated with their cooling effect.
The inlet air temperature, velocity and humidity additionally follow the typical diurnal cycle of the location. It is clearly visible how the architecture, humidity sources (evaporation and evapotranspiration) and solar radiation work together forming the local microclimate.
All together this shows how the built environment and architecture influence the urban heat island effect (UHI) in public spaces and how it can be influenced by green infrastructure.
