Result types (Heat Overlay)
The DPRA Heat Module of the Heat Overlay performs complex calculations and can generate multiple types of results per timeframe. A timeframe in the Heat Overlay corresponds to a date and time for which a result will be calculated. This date and time will be relative to the project's time zone.
List of Result Types
|The Bowen ratio of buildings and terrains. Is used to describe the type of heat transfer for a surface that has moisture.
|The initial and optional calculated foliage height, depending on the source of the foliage height.
|The calculated physiological equivalent temperature.
|The calculated physiological equivalent temperature, relative to the calculated atmospheric temperature.
|Indicates whether a cell is in the shade or not based on sun ray calculations.
|The calculated sky view factor.
|The calculated average of individual calculated sky view factors.
|The calculated atmospheric temperature, based on the calculated urban heat island, sun motion factor and the measured temperature.
|The calculated urban heat island effect.
|The fraction of vegetation per square meter.
|The calculated average vegetation based on the cells' individual vegetation fraction.
|The wind speed calculated for the height of 1.2 meters above ground.
Result types can differ in the kind of data they display and in what way that data is recorded. A result type can be monitoring the data in one of the following ways:
- Start: The data is determined at the start of the simulation, and does not change over the course of multiple time steps.
- Date-Time: The data is dependent on the timestep, which corresponds to a date and time.
