EN 15251:2007: Indoor environmental input
There are several outdoor microclimatic simulation software tools in use. The current research aims to identify some of the most prominent computer-based tools based on their capacity of predicting a significant number of variables and compare them in order to establish their differences. This article provides an overview of the applications of computational fluid dynamics in outdoor performance simulation, focused on three topics: general criteria, specific outputs, strategies, and elements can be investigated by the tool. The results have shown that ENVI-met tool is capable of predicting and simulating the set microclimate variables.
, scaled, and interpreted: ‒ Thermalcomfort during both heating and cooling operation periods (EN 15251); ‒ Visual comfort, daytime natural illumination strength. The building physics examinations were carried out in several solar-exposed sample rooms and
