Simulation Analysis on Effect of Shading Types on Outdoor Thermal Environment
Simulating the summer outdoor thermal environment of Exhibition Center in Taizhou with the improved CTTC (cluster thermal time constant) model to quantitatively analyze the effect of shading types on the heat island intensity. The results show that the effect of tree canopy is the most obvious. When the shading coverage ratio is less than 20%, the variations of average heat island intensity with the increased of solar radiation transmissivity is little, and the cooling effect is not significant.
