[EN]The objective of the present paper is to investigate thermal behavior of urban environment in relation to variables such as outdoor temperature, winds, facades and the flooring materials and dimensions of buildings. In this study, the SOLWEIG model ( Solarand Long Wave Environmental Irradiance Geometry) was employed to investigate the spatial variation of Tmrt in San Mames zone of Bilbao City, Spain. Urban geometry is widely considered to play an important rolein the provision of shading in the urban environment .Previous studies on the effect of urban geometry on outdoor thermalenvironment are conducted in low to mid-density urban envi-ronment. The understanding of how urban geometry affects outdoor thermal environment in high-density cities is rather limited. It leads to ineffective urban design which may exacerbatethermal discomfort in the dense urban areas.
