Abstract

In this study, site measurements were carried out in a public housing block to investigate the effect of a wing-wall on the natural ventilation in nearby indoor spaces, such as residential units and corridors. The influence of prevailing wind direction on the wing-wall performance was also studied. Results show that the wing-wall can enhance the natural ventilation of an indoor space very effectively under favourable wind directions. However, it can have adverse effect on the natural ventilation in the indoor space on its leeward side if the speed of the prevailing wind is not strong enough.
