Impact of urban geometry on indoor air temperature and cooling energy consumption in traditional and formal urban environments
(Ecohouse Initative Ltd., 2019-04-10)
This study explores the effect of outdoor microclimatic environment on indoor conditions in a tropical warm-humid climate. An indoor air temperature and building energy performance analysis is carried out for the real ...
Calculation of urban geometry parameters in an asymmetric street canyon: H/W ratio and SVF
Supplementary material for: Effects of microclimatic and human parameters on outdoor thermal sensation in the high-density tropical context of Dhaka
(International Journal of Biometeorology, SpringerLink, 2018-09-12)
Harmonious accordance of indoor-outdoor thermal comfort and building energy performance by ameliorating urban microclimate in different urban block types in tropical climate
(IC2UHI - International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Island, 2014-10-13)
This paper explores the effect of outdoor microclimatic environment upon indoor conditions for different urban block types in hot-humid climate. The main focus here is on courtyard patterns, considering its potentials for ...
Exploring the Effect of Micro-climate Data on Building Energy Performance Analysis
A limitation in the current research is most studies on energy performance of buildings concentrate on individual buildings while its interaction with neighbouring urban context remains largely unexplored. Buildings are ...
A Comparative Study of Sustainable Urban Forms: Compact City and Short Cycle Strategy
(AIUB Journal of Science and Engineering, 2011-12-12)
This paper aims to identify the urban form and design issues that are concerned with the sustainable development of a new settlement. Drawing on the theoretical literature, it recognizes eight key issues to achieve a ...
Effect of Canyon Geometry on Outdoor Thermal Comfort: A case-study of high-density, warm-humid climate
(PLEA (Passive and Low Energy Architecture), 2013-09-10)
A successful urban planning and design solution ought to present a comfortable setting for its pedestrians inside urban canyons, because it is fundamental to encourage a good quality urban life and promote health and ...
USE OF MICROCLIMATE MODELS FOR EVALUATING THERMAL COMFORT: IDENTIFYING THE GAPS
(CISBAT - International Conference on CLEANTECH FOR SMART CITIES & BUILDINGS, 2015-09-09)
The study identifies the gap between actual thermal sensation and theoretical comfort calculated through simulated microclimate data in different urban configurations in a tropical, high-density, megacity: Dhaka. The ...
Understanding ENVI-met (V4) model behaviour in relation to environmental variables
(PLEA (Passive and Low Energy Architecture), 2017-07-03)
A parametric analysis is carried out to understand how ENVI-met (V4) responds to the following aspects which form the basis of understanding the model’s behaviour: i) canyon aspect ratio, ii) cloud cover, iii) orientation, ...
A study of thermal comfort in outdoor urban spaces in respect to increasing building height in Dhaka
(American International University Bangladesh, 2012-12-14)
Thermal environment of urban spaces plays a great role on the quality of life in a city. It directly affects people’s behaviour and usage of outdoor spaces. Therefore, an environmentally conscious urban design solution ...
