AbstractOutdoor thermal comfort for pedestrians becomes important issues in urban planning affecting everyone's daily lives. Mean Radiant Temperature (T mrt) is one of the most important parameters in micro climate. In this study, we built a computerised model with variable and typical building types. Then a radiation model SOLWEIG was used to simulate pavements' T mrt spatial variations. We analysed and discussed the simulation results by comparing different building types. We used RayMan to find some relationship between thermal comfort index PET or PMV. Our finding can act as a reference for architects and planners to make design decisions on quantifying the thermal comfort in specific urban environment and their building types. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
