Numerical investigation into the influence of geometry and construction materials on urban street climate

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A numerical model is developed for simulating the nocturnal cooling of the ground and walls in typical urban canyons. The model is capable of dealing with homogeneous as well as inhomogeneous (layered) soil and wall substrates. Experiments carried out with the model show that the differencein the thermal properties of urban asphalt and concrete pavements and the rural surface dry soil substrate could create urban/rural surface temperature differences of up to 4-5K
