title Crafting and Assessing Urban Environments Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
source Digital Crafting [7th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2014 / ISBN 978-603-90142-5-6], Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), 31 March - 3 April 2014, pp. 315-322
summary Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a reliable tool for the analysis of outdoor and indoor climatic related conditions. Due to rapid population growth the need for dense urban developments and high-rise buildings became demanding. This led to creating the phenomenon of urban heat islands and deteriorating air quality and thermal discomfort. This research highlights the potential of adopting CFD as a simulation technique to investigate the complex fluid flows in urban thermal environment. It discusses the advantages and limitations of CFD tool. It describes the CFD simulation approach and the procedure for conducting CFD simulation. This paper also gives some examples of case studies of CFD assessment for indoor and outdoor urban environments.
