English abstract:
Building performance calculations are usually done
with regional weather files. Studies have proven that
the microclimatic conditions vary widely within the
urban area. This is due to the influence of the
surrounding urban fabric (e.g. the materials used, the
building structure and orientation, vegetation, etc.)
and the anthropogenic heat emission on the
aerodynamics, thermodynamics and the radiation, and
therefore on the surrounding climatic conditions. In
order to get more accurate results for the buildings
performance, detailed information on the surrounding
climatic conditions are needed. This paper compares
and evaluates the possibility of generating
microclimatic information using the example of a
courtyard in Vienna. The results can later be used as
input information for more detailed building
performance calculations.
