How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
With the rapid importance of high-performance energy modeling of buildings, whole-building energy simulation engines are rapidly used in the decision-making process. However, there are tens of engines in the market, which makes the choice of design engine very challenging. This article provides a comparison of the applications of whole-building ene...
The relationship between water body (fountains) scale and climate parameters like wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity, as well as thermal comfort index was modeled and analyzed via Envi-met code. Taking the water impact and factors analysis as a research object, the factors mainly discussed in this research are square area to water-body...
As streets cover almost twenty-five percentages of the urban open spaces, designing streets is a vital issue in creating thermal comfort for urban environmental design. The geometry of the street (height/width ratio), as well as orientation, directly influences the airspeed, solar access in urban canyon and as a result thermal comfort at the pedest...
The main target of this research is investigating the possibility of enhancing the outdoor thermal comfort in central European city of Pecs in summer. In simple words is to determine how designers could modify climatic conditions in urban spaces for thermal comfort and develop a better understanding of the relationship between outdoor thermal comfo...
Numerical research in the context of urban in a humid continental climate zone is still limited. The aim of modeling the case study is to assess the performance of outdoor thermal comfort parameters and investigate their capabilities in achieving outdoor thermal comfort. A computer-based tool is used to quantitatively study the outdoor thermal comf...
This project aims to investigate high-performance energy and water design measures and strategies in existing buildings of southern Jordanian already-built buildings in the hot-dry context of Ma'an-city to transform existing residential buildings into Water-Energy efficient ones. This project encourages better design and construction practices that promote passive and active design strategies and water efficiency.
1-Quantitively and qualitatively evaluating the outdoor thermal performance in Pecs city 2-Formulating design measures that could enhance the outdoor thermal performance 3-Quantifying the effect of different design measures that could possibly enhance the outdoor thermal performance 4-Providing the designers and decision makers with a comprehensive framework for use in evaluating or predicting the effect of different design measures and their parameters in enhancing the outdoor microclimate.
