Cooling pavement reflects UV rays and absorbs solar radiation to a lesser extent and can have a positive effect on overall temperature reduction. Besides, its protective material reduces vehicle tire friction and increases life of roads.
Unlike conventional asphalt, which contributes to an increase in road temperature by absorbing up to 80% to 95% of sunlight, the "cool pavement" technology reflects UV rays and absorbs solar radiation to a lesser extent, Ashghal has explained, noting that it can have a positive effect on overall temperature reduction.
The project aims to provide temperature reduction from 15C to 20C, where temperatures will be recorded every 10 seconds during the season through sensors placed under the asphalt.
The station buildings are designed based on principles of felt temperature reduction -- from outside the station to the platform, the ambient temperatures get progressively lower without the need for mechanical cooling throughout.
The research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences argued that there is a non-linear relationship between canopy cover and temperature reduction: when canopy cover reaches a certain threshold, temperatures will begin to drop far more dramatically than they do below that point.
Researchers also were ready to halt any electrical activity that might have emerged through anesthetics and temperature reduction, according to Yale.
In a previously conducted passive ventilation test strategy at NREL, an air temperature reduction of 3.5[degrees]C was measured due to lowering the door windows by 2 cm, increasing the air infiltration rate during a thermal soak experiment [16].
The pure RTV material and the cooling semiconductor exhibited essentially the same temperature variation trend during the temperature reduction. At the initial stage of the temperature reduction, RM2 exhibits the same variation pattern as the cooling semiconductor.
Inspector General Forest, Syed Mahmood Nasir said: 'Pakistan needs to design urban forests that may result in a temperature reduction of 8-10 degree centigrade.'
Surface temperature reduction by grass surfacing (Scenario 3) and adding more trees (Scenario 4) is also obvious, with a reduction by up to 8[degrees]C for grass and 10[degrees]C for trees.
The reduction of Fe species on the Fe-zeolites started at 200[degrees]C and continued till 850[degrees]C with profiles broadly divided into two regions: low temperature reduction region between 200 and 400[degrees]C and medium temperature reduction region between 400 and 700[degrees]C.
