title Aerodynamic Features as Auxiliary Architecture
source Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture, Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2014) / Kyoto 14-16 May 2014, pp. 295–304
summary This paper presents the experimental study of aerodynamics phenomena in built environments, focused on explorations of environmental wind flow near buildings, pedestrian wind comfort issues and methods of mitigation of wind speed. In addition, it is an overview of an aerodynamic analysis with CFD software for a hypothetical urban shelter design, based on aerodynamic features. The aim is to evaluate the feature’s performance to control wind flow in protection regions for pedestrians.
keywords Urban aerodynamics; CFD simulation; wind discomfort
