Analysis of pavement surface heating in urban areas

Abstract

Heat islands are areas in which temperature is higher than that prevailing in surrounding areas. They are dominantly formed in developed urban zones, and are further intensified by the use of pavement structures with poor thermal properties. Results obtained during temperature testing conducted on pavements of various types and properties are presented in the paper. The measurements were made in summer months of 2011 in the town of Rijeka. The analysis of results has revealed new data about sensitivity to heating of individual types of pavement structures, and about behaviour of various types of surfacing when subjected to similar heating conditions.

Keywords
