Dataset for "A parametric optimisation study of urban geometry design to assess outdoor thermal comfort."



This dataset supports the study on the effect of urban geometry parameters, namely, building heights (H), street widths (W), aspect ratio (H/W) and orientation on the outdoor thermal comfort conditions in Cairo, Egypt. The study uses Grasshopper for Rhino3D and its environmental plugins, Ladybug-tools, to analyse thermal comfort represented by the Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) of multiple geometry configurations. The data files include the input parameters (prefixed "in:"), processed data and the output UTCI (prefixed "out:") in each phase of the study.
