Abstract

There have been thirty-eight heat waves in Europe in the last century, seventeen of which were in the last decade. In urban areas, the effects of global warming are intensified because air and surface temperatures are, on average higher than in the surrounding areas, a phenomenon is known as Urban Heat Island (UHI). This research, therefore, investigates how road pavement design, construction, and maintenance can play an important role in the formation of UHI's while proposing a conceptual framework for a data-driven simulation of the interaction between road pavements and UHI's, moving one step closer towards smarter and sustainable solutions for asphalt road pavements.
