Details

There is an increasing interest within the field of wind engineering for the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to the study of flows in the lower part of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). The simulation of atmospheric flows, possibly over complex domain, is necessary for the estimation of pedestrian wind comfort nearby and wind load on buildings, and for the selection of sites for windmills and wind farms as well as for the investigation of atmospheric pollutant dispersion.

The present course offers a wide overview of the state-of-the-art of the domain, considering the application to both short and mesoscale range. Reynolds Averaging (RANS) and large-eddy (LES) approaches are discussed and their respective capabilities for different classes of flows are evaluated. The discussion is completed by the presentation of examples of practical implementation and application.
