title Research on the Impact of Traditional Urban Geometry on Outdoor Thermal Environment - Case Study of Neighbourhoods with Arcade Street in South China
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 503-512
summary With the deterioration of urban environment gradually in these decades, the demand for improving the outdoor thermal environment is increasing. The traditional architecture and urban planning contain abundant climate responding strategy, while current studies about it are still insufficient. Furthermore, many researches had profound results on how different urban design parameters would impact outdoor thermal comfort, but only a few of them could achieve an effective transformation into a practical scenario. Thus, this paper attempts to present the impact of different traditional urban form, which is extracted from different neighborhoods with arcade street in south China, on the outdoor thermal environment, through field measurements and climatic simulation with Envi-met. Moreover, these different complex urban forms were transferred into a simplified form with uniform character and simulating based on the same boundary condition. Comparing the SVF (Sky View Factor) and PET (Physiological Equivalent Temperature) of each point, the organic urban form would lead better thermal environment than others on the main road. On the other hand, the SVF of a point is not the only one aspect of its PET, which related with the form of urban geometry as well.
