Minisymposium (ID: SS-MACBE)
Modeling approaches and challenges in the build enviroment
Organizers:Ryan Danks (RWDI) and Michael Carl (RWDI)
As urban densities increase, understanding the interactions between climate, the built environment,
and the local population are increasingly important subjects. Energy efficiency, minimizing heat island
effects and general satisfaction of the inhabitants are becoming driving forces in modern sustainable
design. The urban landscape is a complex system where wind, solar radiation and other climatological
parameters impact everything from building energy usage, building structural requirements and
pollutant dispersion to thermal comfort and the creation of pleasant environments.
In this session, some of the methods and approaches used in studying a variety of issues within cities
and around buildings will be presented.
