L’hypercube°AREP : the applied research and modelling team dedicated to building and urban physics
These pages are intended to present the necessary theoretical background for calculating the physics of phenomena occurring in open and semi-open environments (e. g. train stations and their urban environment): comfort, air flows, air quality, pollution...
You will therefore find content on urban scale air flows, physiological models for thermal comfort and indoor air quality, particularly in underground stations.
Within AREP, the team made up of PhD's, engineers and architects is commited to enable the computation of complex climatic phenomena in outdoor and semi-outdoor spaces. As most commercial softwares do not allow to properly characterize this typology of spaces, we use a coupling of different numerical methods, as well as intensive parallel computing methods.
