SAFER HYDRONIC URBAN PAVEMENTS (SAFERHP) - Papers

The raising of temperatures nowadays has become a critical issue,especially in urban areas due tothe phenomenon of theUrban Heat Island effect(UHI). Asphalt pavement temperatures increase due to the solar radiation, which contributes towardsthis effect.The concept of cooling the pavement surface is possible bymeans ofatemperature controlled asphalt pavement.This concept will lead to a reduction ofthe surface temperature and subsequently a decrease of the temperaturesin the surrounding urban areas during warmseasons. Thus, it will relieve the Urban Heat Island effect. For this paper the concept of temperature controlled asphalt pavement has been proposed. Theoretical consideration has been made and a numerical modelling is presented.
