Abstract

In this paper, in order to predict the outdoor thermal environment, a simple multi-layer canopy model coupled with calculation of outdoor thermal comfort was developed. SET* value was used to estimate the pedestrian level of thermal comfort in the outdoor thermal environment. Preliminary verification of this model using observational data on the outdoor thermal conditions showed good results. In addition, the results show that outdoor thermal comfort is significantly different with air temperature. Except for air temperature, both solar radiation and humidity play important roles on outdoor thermal comfort.
