Abstract

This study investigates the effect of urban vegetation on thermal comfort in a neighbourhood of Lahti (Finland) by means of modeling simulations performed with the Computational Fluid Dynamics-based and microclimate model ENVI-met. A scenario without vegetation and the current one (with vegetation) are considered to assess the effects of vegetation in different seasons and provide suggestions for thermal comfort improvement.
