We are pleased to announce the launch of IUSD – Urban Climatic Lab (UCL) at IUSD Cairo Lab, Ain Shams University, on Saturday 10th of February 2018. IUSD-UCL is established under the framework of the project “Sustainable Urban Planning via establishment of Urban Climatic Labs in Arid Cities”; a collaboration between Ain Shams University and Freie Universitaet Berlin , and funded by the DAAD.

IUSD-UCL focuses on the field of Simulation Aided Design using different modeling and simulation tools in studying both the indoor and outdoor environments as well as their mutual impact on one another. The lab is equipped with required modeling softwares and measurement tools to conduct urban climatic modeling and simulation activities. Available softwares currently include Design Builder, ENVI-met and Rayman. The measurement tools include devices for measuring  global temperature, relative humidity, wind sped and radiation. The Lab equipment will host students and researchers from different disciplines who are interested to study the relation between indoor and outdoor environments, and develop solutions to address challenges facing the climate in urban areas. In additon,the Lab will offer training packages for researchers interested to learn more about urban climate modeling and simulation. Offers for training packages will be announced soon.
