Paper Title:
Summer Thermal Environment Measurement and Analysis of Subtropical Campus
  Abstract

In subtropical areas of China, air temperature and relative humidity were relatively high in summer, as well as the solar radiation. In the university campus, students are relatively concentrated and have more outdoor activities. Hot and humid weather conditions may cause students uncomfortable and even heat stroke. Therefore, the influences of landscape design on thermal environment should be taken into account in the process of campus planning. In this paper, the field measurement of outdoor air temperature, relative humidity, wind velocity, heat radiation and integrated hot environmental indicator namely wet bulb global temperature were carried out around the Dong Lake in South China University of Technology in typical summer days. The impacts of design methods of water, tree, grass and floor on thermal environment were analyzed.
