The goal of this research is to
the most suitable computer
assessment of urban
performance from physical point of view. Although there are
many physical simulation tools available today,
there is no one which covers all the needs of
urban design. After initial research of available software, we have chosen to assess three
applications: ENVI-met, Project Vasari and IES VE-Pro.
The assessment is
two parts: functionality
, which deals with the available features of the
application and useability
, which deals with the user experience and
Since different aspects of assessed functionality and useability are not equally
important, we have also included pondering mechanism in order to find the most suitable
software for specific requirements.
omplete assessment table is available
the reader can modify
can find the application that suits his or her needs best.
