The incidence of heatstroke has been increasing in Japan, and future climate change is likely to increase heatstroke risk. We therefore developed a method to quantify the spatial distribution of outdoor heatstroke risk and predicted future changes in this risk considering the predicted climate change in Sendai, Japan. Heatstroke risk was quantified by(More)
The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model coupled with an Urban Canopy Model (UCM) was used for studying urban environmental issues. Because land use data employed in the WRF model do not agree with the current situation around Guangzhou, China, the performance of WRF/UCM with new land-use data extracted from Remote Sensing (RS) data was evaluated in(More)
In this study, LES was applied to two flowfields that consisted of buildings with uniform and nonuniform heights to investigate the effects of variations in building heights on drag force of buildings and momentum transports in the urban canopy layer. The contributions of wind pressure and surface shear stress acting on building walls, roofs and ground to(More)
