Development of Thermal Simulation Tool for Urban Block Design - Based on Numerical Simulation System using 3D
A simulation system has been developed as a computer aided design tool to evaluate the effect of proposed design on the thermal environment during the designing process. This system calculates outdoor surface temperatures in order to evaluate the thermal impact of a design factor in outdoor space. In this study, the previous heat balance simulation system was improved to predict the surface temperature of a proposed design using 3D-CAD. This system is able to input the complicated outdoor spatial forms efﬁciently and also to evaluate the surface temperature distribution from any viewpoint.
