Mikroklimasimulation ergänzend zur Gebäudesimulation

Michael Bruse, Heide Schuster

Abstract: xTask of energy efficient and sustainable building design is to realize a built environment under the aspects of environmental protection, minimised energy and material consumption and comfortable socio-cultural surroundings. This holistic way of investigating the built environment implicates the expansion of the building related aspects into the urban surrounding environment. This study presents the integration of microclimate simulations for planning purposes of urban developments. The fact that local climate conditions and buildings interact with each other has consequences both for the heating and cooling load of buildings but also for the thermal comfort of pedestrians. As an example a project in Dubai (UAE) will be introduced using microclimatic modelling for the analysis of shading and outdoor thermal comfort of pedestrians.
