Comparisons between FLUENT and ADMS for atmospheric dispersion modelling
Abstract The dispersion of gases in complex situations such as the case of buildings in close proximity is a difficult problem, but important for the safety of people living and working in suchExpand

The comfort, energy and health implications of London’s urban heat island
The urban heat island (UHI) is a well-known effect of urbanisation and is particularly important in world megacities. Overheating in such cities is expected to be exacerbated in the future as aExpand

Spatially-varying surface roughness and ground-level air quality in an operational dispersion model.
Urban form controls the overall aerodynamic roughness of a city, and hence plays a significant role in how air flow interacts with the urban landscape. This paper reports improved model performanceExpand

The effectiveness of retrofitted green and cool roofs at reducing overheating in a naturally ventilated office in London: Direct and indirect effects in current and future climates
Mitigating summertime overheating is increasingly viewed as a key issue in urban planning – a warming climate and increasing urbanisation will exacerbate the problem. The effectiveness of green andExpand

ADMS-Urban: developments in modelling dispersion from the city scale to the local scale
Many countries perform national air quality assessments using grid-based numerical air dispersion models, generally referred to as ‘regional’ models. Advantages of these models include the ability toExpand
