Improving Climatic Comfort of Citizens in Public Spaces

What is it about?

This study measures different orientation and extension rates of physics of urban squares in Yazd using the correlation method and R software. It analyzes two models with orientation and physical extension as variables and evaluates the shade and sunlight in the space.

Why is it important?

The results reveal significant differences between desirable and undesirable options. Considering the climatic comfort of space users and residents at the same time, a rectangle with an extension ratio of one to several and the north-south orientation, making the lowest facade face the south, is the most appropriate physic for the city squares in Yazd.

I hope this article makes an important contribution to the design of urban squares in the city of Yazd and similar situations in Iran and hot arid zones.
