ENVI-met is a three-dimensional microclimate model designed to simulate the surface-plant-air interactions in urban environment with a typical resolution of 0.5 to 10 m in space and 10 sec in time. Typical areas of application are Urban Climatology, Architecture, Building Design or Environmental Planning, just to name a few.
The RayMan model, developed for the calculation of the mean radiation temperature and thermal indices in simple and complex environments, is based only on data of air temperature, air humidity and wind speed.
TownScope is a multi-disciplinary consultancy dedicated to sustainable urban design.
Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis sustainable design analysis software is a comprehensive concept-to-detail sustainable building design tool.
The SOLWEIG-model, developed by the Göteborg Urban Climate Group, simulates spatial variations of mean radiant temperature and 3D fluxes of long-wave and short-wave radiation in complex urban settings.
DesignBuilder is a state-of-the-art software tool for checking building energy, carbon, lighting and comfort performance. Developed to simplify the process of building simulation, DesignBuilder allows you to rapidly compare the function and performance of building designs and deliver results on time and on budget.
