Application of computational fluid dynamics to the study of designed green features for sustainable buildings

Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingChapter in an edited book (as author)Academic research


This chapter will introduce the numerical simulation of two green features including windcathcer and wing walls. The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) numerical technique used including geometry, numerical grids, boundary conditions and turbulence models will be discussed. The ventilation performance of these green features in buildings will be discussed. Other CFD applications in building services engineering such as prediction of flow-generated noise using CFD will also be briefly introduced.
