Abstract General Information : The central purpose of this proposal is to characterise the micro-climate within cities in relation to urban form. The specific aims are: 1 To establish quantified generalised relationships between microclimatic characteristics at a neighbourhood scale and the geometric morphological properties of urban form. 2 To develop a simplified urban porosity model that describes the microclimatic characteristics of an urban texture, in overall terms, so that as the physical fo... >>
