I’m currently working on an UTCI simulation using Ladybug tool: Dry Bulb Temperature (DBT) + Mean Radiant Temperature (MRT) + Wind Speed + Relative Humidity (RH). So, I’ve 2 questions over here:
- How should I capture the heat capacity of the ground materials while simulating for MRT? Thermal mass material eg concrete conducts heat better than timber.
- How should I take the ceiling fan effect into account for UTCI as higher wind speed would improve the results? I’m considering using Eddy but not sure how should I insert the wind speed output from Eddy into each grid cell for UTCI.
