Abstract

The subject of this research is the relationship between built density and urban microclimates. The objective is to quantify the effect of built density on urban microclimate in the city of São Paulo, through the construction of different parametric scenarios, considering the possible patterns of occupation of blocks, with different types of buildings: the perimeter block , the blade building and the tower. The method is inductive, through field surveys characterizing the pattern of occupation in two most densely populated districts of São Paulo, SP, and the measurement of local microclimatic conditions, and deductible, by comparisons between the field surveys and computational simulations. Simulation in the study area will be made in the computational model ENVI -met 4.0 (preview) to calibrate the model between measured and simulated data aiming at higher reliability of the results. In the next step a parametric array with different scenarios considering possible settlement patterns cited above will be made for a new stage of simulations. After analyzing the results of the desired parametric simulations, then the establishment of relations aimed will be made to quantify the effect of density built on the urban microclimate. Following is intended to broaden the discussion and indicate possible consolidation scenarios for the city of São Paulo in terms of urban microclimate, indicating future directions to continuing the research.
