Research and Modeling by AREP


These pages are intended to present the theoretical background necessary for calculating the physics of phenomena found in open and semi-open environments (e. g. train stations and their urban environment): comfort, air flows, air quality, pollution...

You will therefore find pages on urban scale air flows, the calculation of thermal comfort based on physiological models and indoor air quality, particularly in underground stations.

Within AREP, the team - made up of PhD's, engineers, architects* - is committed to making it possible to calculate physical phenomena in and around semi-open spaces. As most commercial softwares do not allow us to reliably simulate these phenomena, we use a coupling of different numerical tools, as well as intensive and parallel computing methods.
