Examines urban microclimate from the perspective of transient heat and mass transfer using building energy simulations for building clusters. The focus is on understandingbuilding energy consumption and environmental impacts from the individual building scale (~100) to a neighborhood scale (~103). Emerging morphological properties of building clustersmodulate transient convective and radiative heat transfer resulting in different localmicroclimatic conditions. At the neighborhood scale, these conditions are analyzed using heatand mass transfer simulations in building clusters to provide boundary conditions for transient building energy simulations. At the individual building scale, besides the energy consumption,this course examines connection between indoor and outdoor environments.
