A holistic microclimate model

The new Winter-Release comes with a multitude of new features. For a first impression, click on the image above to view our release brochure. Below, you find a detailed list of the most important features.

Note, that most of the features are only available in the full ENVI-met versions, not in BASIC.

New Applications

  • Monde, the new vector based world editor with online integration of OpenStreetMap and OpenTopography (Beta)
  • The new ENVIGuide assisting you in the generation of .SIMX simulation files
  • ForcingCreator assisting you to generate files for the new full-forcing based on meassured data or EPW files
  • Converter tool from EDX files into the NetCDFformat
  • Plug-in for Rhino Grasshopper/Ladybug to create ENVI-met Area Input files and Simulation files and start ENVI-met from Grashopper (to be released individually in early December)

New Model features

  • New facade and roof greening model with detailed calculation of exchange processes at the plant and the substrate layer
  • Full Forcing allows you integrate meassured data or data from larger-scale models into the ENVI-met simulation. All variables including wind and solar radition can be “forced”
  • Buildings can have individual wall and roof materials and wall and roof greening in ConceptDesign mode
  • The simulation files have a new format (.SIMX) with more options to control the model configuration
  • The popular IVS method can now be executed in the memory which increases the calculation speed drastically. (A parallel version is up-to-come)
  • The ENVI-met database system has been extended to 6-char IDs to allow a better organisation of IDs. The system will automatically convert old 2-char IDs
  • The DBManager features a new tool to calculate pollutant emissions from car traffic based on standard emission factors
  • Receptor names can have any length now

Vegetation model

  • The new TreeCalender allws a dynamical adjustment of the leaf area density of plants with respect to the month of the year to simulate seasonal effects
  • The user can set the solar transmissivity of leafs in order to better simulate the absorption of radiation and shadow casting
  • The Tree database (Albero) has been re-structured (The old trees are still available)

Re-worked applications

  • SPACES have been re-designed to include the new features such as facade/roof greening or topography integration.
