I am working on modeling permeable pavements as mitigation for urban heat island. Permeable pavements are supposed to remain cooler compared to conventional pavements and contribute towards lowering ambient temperature through evaporative cooling. I would like to get pointers from you all on how can I model them in Dragonfly to validate their performance. As far as I know, phase change phenomena is a bit difficult to model in dragonfly. Is there any work around for doing this?
looking forward to hearing from you all on this.
Thanks in advance!
