Urban wind simulation in VirtualCity@Chalmers

  Analysis of wind flow is an important factor in assessing the conditions for pedestrian comfort in a city. The geometries of buildings, in particular tall buildings, and their relative positions have a tremendous effect on the wind experienced by pedestrians on the ground level. Wind is a highly complex phenomenon and the analysis requires the use of sophisticated mathematical modeling and high-performance computing. As a first demonstration of the capabilities of the VirtualCity@Chalmers platform, we have analyzed the wind conditions on the Chalmers Lindholmen campus by a … [Read More...]
