Outline Activities

Currently, approximately 50% of the world’s population is living in urban areas and that figure is predicted to continue to increase. On the other hand, many cities are facing problems caused by urbanization. The urban heat island phenomenon, one of the urban climate problems, is a typical environmental problem encountered in dense urban areas in summer. I'm tackling these so-called urban climate problems to construct sustainable society from the view point of thermal environment.

1. Numerical simulation of the urban climate using meso-scale meteorological model
2. Field observation to clarify the urban climate
Research Interests
  • Research on Urban Environment
    keyword : Urban Environment, Building Environment, Urban Climatology
Current and Past Project
  • This project was cooperated with Kajima Technical Research Institute. In this project, wind environment in the complicated urban area was simulated using FX10 owned by Kyushu University.
Academic Activities
1. Yoichi Kawamoto, Investigation of the uncertainty of initial and boundary conditions in the hindcasts of flow fields over urban areas using a mesoscale numerical weather prediction model, Japan Architectural Review,, 5, 4, 517-529, 2022.09.
Membership in Academic Society
  • Heat Island Institute International
  • Architectural Institute of Japan
  • The Society of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Sanitary Engineers of Japan

Educational Activities
The understanding of environment is essential to design the environment. To aim for understanding the environment, the knowledges of observation and numerical simulation of environment are instructed.
