Physical Determinants and Reduced Models of the Rapid Cooling of Urban Surfaces During Rainfall

Using a detailed model, sensitivity analyses are conducted to identify the leading physical determinants and heat fluxes that control energy exchange between surface runoff and urban pavements during

Heat, Air and Water: How Cities Create Their Own Hydroclimates

Metropolitan areas are usually hotter than their surrounding rural areas due to human activities and land-use change. This phenomenon, called the Urban Heat Island (UHI), significantly alters air and

7th International Building Physics Conference IBPC 2018 Proceedings: Healthy, Intelligent and Resilient Buildings and Urban Environments

Using model for the heat transfer between pavements and runoff during rainfall, we investigate the importance of different pavement and rainfall properties, as well as crucial energy budget terms

An albedo irradiance model usable for bifacial PV modules based on LiDAR data and ray casting

Despite the fact that the price per watt-peak for photovoltaic modules are decreasing rapidly, there is a large population of people which have still not implemented photovoltaic technology in their

Simulation of Bifacial and Monofacial Silicon Solar Cell Short-Circuit Current Density Under Measured Spectro-Angular Solar Irradiance

In this article, we simulated the performance of bifacial and monofacial silicon heterojunction solar cells under measured spectro-angular solar irradiance. We developed a new set-up and procedure to

Energy Yield Prediction of Solar Powered E-bike Charging Station

Recent innovations in Electric Vehicles (EVs) will potentially change the future of the transportation industry. They will diversify the energy mix and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. However,

Impacts of progressive urban expansion on subsurface temperatures in the city of Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

Subsurface temperatures are substantially higher in urban areas than in surrounding rural environments; the result is a subsurface urban heat island (SUHI). SUHIs and their drivers have received



Development of Pavement-Surface Temperature Predictive Models: Parametric Approach

AbstractRapid urbanization has been causing a change in the urban climate resulting in urban heat islands (UHIs). In the area of transportation pavement infrastructure and its effect on UHI, the

How to Reduce Tire-Pavement Noise: Interim Better Practices for Constructing and Texturing Concrete Pavement Surfaces

This report describes better practices for constructing and texturing quieter concrete pavements; better practices that answer the question of how we can reduce tire-pavement noise; and better
