Analyse des Mikroklimas und des thermischen Empfindens in Abhängigkeit der Baustrukturen als Grundlage für eine klimawandelgerechte Stadtplanung

Lutz Katzschner

Abstract: In the face of global warming, human thermal comfort has become an increasing important aspect in applied urban planning. For a better consideration of this aspect in the planning process, qualitative and especially quantitative assessment tools are required. The joint project KLIMES is funded by the BMBF inside the research framework „Forschung für den Klimaschutz und Schutz vor Klimawirkungen“ (klimazwei). Within KLIMES several investigations into thermal comfort in outdoor and indoor spaces are carried out in selected city quarters in the city of Freiburg (SW Germany). These studies consist of (1) experimental investigations including field interviews about usage of urban open spaces and thermal sensation and (2) numerical simulations on thermal comfort under recent as well as future regional climate conditions. The added-value of the interdisciplinary research project KLIMES is based on the correlation of findings from human-biometeorology with the outcomes from sociologic questionaires which will be used to plan and design structures in a high spatial resolution.
