Urban environment thermal improvement by the bioclimatic simulation of a populated open urban space in Greece.
Urban neighbourhoods and open spaces are strongly related to bioclimatic techniques and practices. The procedure of a bioclimatic study is presented by the use of simulation tools. Routes linking archaeological monuments in the Greek city of Arta are characterised of decreased human thermal comfort conditions during summer time. The employment of computational fluid dynamics has contributed to the understanding of what interventions should be made at the urban populated routes in order to succeed the defined environmental thermal-related targets. The proposed rehabilitation explains what the interventions would contribute to the improvement of the local environment.
