Although there are many approaches to modelling various aspects of the urban microclimate, ranging in complexity from simple empirical correlations to full-scale CFD models, there are a lack of software tools designed specifically for integrated analysis of the urban microclimate, and in particular for analysing how new developments in an urban area might influence the local climate. This is a niche that this project aims to fill. The aim is to develop a tool that can be used to inform the design process of new developments in some urban area.
