Outdoor Comfort: the ENVI-BUG tool to evaluate PMV values point by point

Kristian Fabbri, Antonello Di Nunzio, Ernesto Antonini, Andrea Boeri

Abstract: Studies on Outdoor Comfort in urban open spaces adopt several tools and software to simulate a microclimate model, energy performance and the fluid-dynamics of winds. The output data, therefore, of these software solutions, e.g. temperature, wind velocity, relative humidity, should be the input data to evaluate the comfort indexes. In the present paper, we describe ENVIBUG, an ENVI-met algorithmic app developed by Grasshopper, that uses the LadyBug method to rapidly calculate the distribution of local PMV.
