Information about Pedestrian Wind Comfort Tool


#1

Hi,

I am using the Pedestrian Wind Comfort tool on a project and I wanted to look further into how the tool calculates the pedestrian comfort. Does it consider temperature as well as wind speeds or is it strictly wind speed? What is the assumed clo factor of the pedestrians?

In addition for the safety calculation, the tool description says the safety is determined if wind speeds exceed 20 m/s (typical pedestrian) 0.01% of the year. If I am adding an analysis period to the pedestrian wind comfort does this calculation change to wind speeds exceeding 20 m/s more than 0.01% of the time during the analysis period?

Thanks,
Elizabeth
