Abstract: Effects of differences in a town’s configuration and the building surface components on urban warming were investigated. One of the most traditional and now urbanized districts in Osaka was selected as the objective. The CFD model was developed for the present district and has verified by measurement in the former study. Surface temperatures were used as boundary conditions and the air temperature distributions were simulated. Surface temperatures of the wooden and soil walls were measured in another district those building materials were similar to those in 1917. Air temperature distribution simulated for various settings of surface temperatures for town’s configuration in 1917 were compared.
