An Integrated approach for ventilation's assessment on outdoor thermal comfort.

Modifications of urban structures that are linked to a lack of elements concerning climate interference in Urban Master Plans lead to environmental consequences that contribute to the thermal discomfort of pedestrians. Ventilation is especially relevant in promoting the necessary airing in regions with hot and
humid climate, as is the case for the study site. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of ventilation on pedestrians' thermal comfort in coastal regions with hot and humid climates. This analysis was possible using an integrated approach to analyse urban layouts, thermal perception and urban legislation. An
Integrated Method for the Analysis of Ventilation was thus proposed. The sampling area consisted of an urban stretch of Orla de Camburi, a seaside district in the city of Vit
