Abstract: This paper examines the method to simulate heat balances on building and urban surfaces by combining the 3D CAD-based thermal environment simulator with 3D steady RANS CFD simulations. The simulation results of the distribution of convective heat transfer coefficient in an urban canyon model are compared with that of a wind tunnel experiment. The effects of building geometries, including veranda and eaves, on the surface temperature distribution and convective heat flux from the building external surfaces are examined using the coupled simulation method.
