Dataset for validating ENVI-met and assessing the benefits of facade greening during heatwaves

Published: 12 April 2022| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/9bm76zcw28.1


This dataset consists mainly of two subsets. The first subset includes measurements and simulation data conducted to validate the simulation tool ENVI-met. The second data subset consists of ENVI-met simulation data of the potential of facade greening in improving the outdoor environment and the indoor air temperature during heatwaves in Central European cities. Both input and output data of the simulation models are provided together with the ENVI-met geometry files (INX files) and the ENVI-met material files (edb files). A full description of the datasets can be found in: H. Alsaad, M. Hartmann, R. Hilbel, C. Voelker, ENVI-met validation data accompanied with simulation data of the impact of facade greening on the urban microclimate, Data in Brief (2022).
