  • Effective Turf Planting Layouts for Heat Mitigation in School yards

    Noriko Umemiya, Takeshi Kishimoto, Tomohiro Kobayashi

    Building Simulation 2019  2019.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Using CFD simulation, this study compared heat mitigation effects of partial turf planting in school yards and of overall turf planting. Typical school lots and surrounding buildings were modelled according to actual conditions. Temperature contour lines and air flow vectors on school yards showed that heat mitigation effects are dependent on wind speed and direction. The wet bulb globe temperatures were evaluated and compared. Turf planting in western parts of the school yards was most effective. Heat mitigation at leeward wind areas was slight.

  • A comparison between elderlypeople and young people in factors related to gazing characteristics during walking in corridors

    Mika Tomita, Noriko Umemiya, Yasuha Kureyama

    Proceedings of the 12th Asia Lighting Conference    193 - 200 2019.08  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    By measuring gazing points of elderly people (65–91) and young people (21–25) as they walked down corridors, this study examined gazing characteristics and their mutual relations, along with physical strength and two-step size.
    Results clarified the following five points.
    1) Among these participants, 64.1% of elderly people and 21.4% of young people had equal to or less than 1.3 two-step size. People with equal to or less than 1.3 two-step size have a higher probability of falling.
    2) The frequency distribution of gazing points revealed four groups: G1) 1 area concentration, G2) 2 area concentration, G3) 3 or 4 area concentration, and G4) more than 5 area distribution.
    3) The two-step size was worst in G2 and greatest in G3 for elderly people. Therefore, people in G2 tend to fall, but those in G3 do not. Age is unrelated to these results.
    4) Gazing characteristics are unrelated to the ease of falling for young people.
    5) In G2 of elderly people, someone who is more impervious to glare has a smaller two-step size.

  • Pupil size change and light evaluation of elderly people

    Noriko Umemiya, Yasuha Kureyama and Mika Tomita

    Proceedings of the 12th Asia Lighting Conference    510 - 515 2019.08  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This study measured pupil size and forehead illuminance simultaneously for elderly people 65 years or older and young university students during corridor walking in daily lighting. Subjective evaluation of the light environment in an experimental room was done for dark and light conditions. Brightness, glare, uniformity, flickering, lighting comfort, lighting preference, and performance were evaluated. Illuminance was 550 lux in the dark condition and 3300 lux in the light condition. For the elderly and young people, pupil size response to illuminance and the relation of its change to forehead illuminance during walking and subjective light evaluation to dark and light conditions in the experimental room were compared. The gradient of pupil size to forehead illuminance was used as an index of the response. Results show differences in gradients between elderly and young people in lighting preference evaluation of the dark condition and in performance evaluation of the light condition.

  • Difference of light environment evaluation between elderly and young people

    Noriko Umemiya and Wei Quiao

    CIE2019  2019.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Light and Dark conditions were evaluated by elderly people and young people in terms of brightness, glare, comfort and preference using experiments with Dark-to-Light and Light-to- Dark sequences. Results indicated the following: 1) Elderly people were less sensitive in terms of brightness to the difference of illuminance change order. 2) Elderly people were less sensitive in terms of glare to the difference of illuminance and to the difference of illuminance change order. 3) The Dark condition was evaluated as less comfortable and less preferred than the Light condition in Light-to-Dark experiments for elderly people, although no difference was found for young people between the Dark and the Light conditions in Light-to-Dark experiments. 4) The Light condition in Dark-to-Light experiments had weaker glare by elderly people than by young people. The Dark condition in Light-to-Dark experiments was evaluated as more comfortable and more preferred by young people than by elderly people.
