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 […]
