AREP L'hypercube: the research, modeling and simulation unit dedicated to building 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...
Here you will find articles about our expertise and know-how: air flows in urban environments, thermal comfort calculation based on human physiological models and indoor air quality, especially 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.
