Noise level and natural ventilation potential in street canyons High external noise levels are often invoked to justify the use of air conditioning in commercial and residential buildings. Methods of estimating noise levels in urban canyons are necessary if the potential for naturally ventilating buildings is to be assessed. The estimated noise levels can then be compared to the level of noise at which building occupants might be motivated to close windows in order to keep out the noise, which would also compromise the natural ventilation strategy.

In fact, in street canyons, the air temperature is much lower than in the boundary layer, partially compensating for the heat island effect. 2m/s Source: Georkakis and Santamouris (2003) solar radiation and emissivity for long-wave radiation, have a very important impact on the urban energy balance (Santamouris and Georgakis, 2004). The use of highalbedo materials reduces the amount of solar radiation absorbed by building envelopes and urban structures, and keeps their surfaces cooler. Materials with high emissivity are good emitters of long-wave radiation and readily release the energy that has been absorbed as short-wave radiation (Santamouris, 2001).

The panels in the second row show the frequency distribution of the outdoor temperature in bins of 1° C at 12 hours and 18 hours. The integral of this distribution is the sum of occurrences over a year – that is, 365. The last row shows the degree hours obtained with equations (55) and (56). We may notice that free cooling is not possible at 12 hours because the free-running temperature is lower than the outdoor temperature due to the thermal inertia of the building. The integrals of DHmc(To) and of DHfc(To) represent the degree hours for mechanical cooling, DHmc, and free cooling, DHfc, respectively.
