A Study of the Effect of Building Designs on Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaption

Repaul Kanji, Sonam Sahu, and Robin Agarwal
Abstract—Urbanization and development are the inevitable consequences of economic growth. With urbanization, various issues of climate change are cropping up. Urban Heat Island (UHI) is a significant phenomenon to manifest the changes in climate of a region. The present research attempts to establish the presence of this phenomenon in Roorkee, India on one hand. And, to study change in architectural styles of the buildings in the course of time as the possible reasons of these climatic differences on the other hand. Finally, the research concludes with recommendations and suggestion to mitigate and adapt to climate changes through the implementation of an indigenously designed algorithm.

Index Terms—Uhi, surface transformation, land surface temperature, minimum u-value algorithm.
