Urban Heat Island Modelling 🌇
The beginning of 2021 will see the completion of the development of a tool for simulating surface temperatures in an urban environment using a weak aeraulic coupling approach.
The tool computes comfort indexese adapted to the outdoor environment at each point in the space. It incorporates a combination of fluid mechanics simulations, solar radiation simulations and dynamic wall models.
The results of a case study in the Strasbourg station area are presented below: Solar flows, air speeds and comfort!
The following animation shows the evolution of comfort levels over the first week of the year.
Sit back and relax! 😎
