Abstract: In the numerical simulation study of urban climate in meso-scale, a uniform arrangement model is generally used by simplifying the complicated conditions formed by groups of buildings and without using complicated geometrical calculation. In contrast, the present authors have been performing a model study by preserving and maintaining solar radiation absorbing characteristics in simplifying the process of the study. In this study, based on the data on the urban form of Osaka City, model parameters relating to direct solar radiation are generated, and we demonstrated that it is possible to re-arrange the problems by interrelating the data with sky view factor as seen from the ground surface.
