Heat Island

Advanced CFD simulations can be performed to analyse the thermal comfort for pedestrians combining air flow and solar exposure. This type of analysis has assumed importance to tackle the effects of solar reflections on pedestrians and study shading strategies to maximise use of space around buildings for use by food and beverage businesses. Some major features of the analysis are:

  • Use as a powerful master planning tool
  • Compare air flow patterns around existing structures to proposed designs
  • Check for air stagnation and potential heat build-up
  • Check for compliance with regulations and mandatory requirements
  • Analyse the effect of surface properties like reflectivity, emissivity and transmissivity for buildings, ground, vegetation and other such landscape features and their interaction with pedestrians
  • Design shading elements and external cooling systems
