|Title:||Recent Trends and Remaining Limitations in Urban Microclimate Models||Authors:||Singh, Manmeet; Laefer, Debra F.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7467||Date:||22-Jan-2015||Online since:||2016-02-09T11:09:50Z||Abstract:||Problems such as natural ventilation, pollutant dispersion, changes in wind environments, and urban heat islands are gaining increasing prominence in both public concern and research. In response urban microclimate modelling researchers are continually striving to develop new strategies to rapidly and inexpensively generate more accurate results. Numerical modelling is a common way to address these concerns. However, to generate realistic results requires significant investment in model creation, especially with respect to the detail to which a model is populated. This paper provides an overview about this and other recent trends within the research community by considering nearly 100 recent papers from 2010-2013. Major trends related to Comprehensive Turbulent Aerosol dynamics and Gas chemistry (CTAG) and perceptual fidelity.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Bentham Open||Journal:||Open Urban Studies and Demography Journal||Volume:||1||Start page:||1||End page:||12||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Microclimate; Wind Environment; Air quality; Urban heat island; Computational fluid dynamics; Perceptual fidelity; Gas chemistry; Environmental justice; Comprehensive turbulent aerosol dynamics||DOI:||10.2174/2352631901401010001||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
