Abstract:

With the introduction of new forms of construction and greater use of taller buildings, more account needs to be taken of the effect of wind turbulence in building design, e.g. with respect to loading of structural components, the human environment in the vicinity of buildings, the general weather tightness, natural ventilation, and the air pollution around buildings. A search of the literature on wind structure near buildings shows that existing knowledge is insufficient for design purposes. Available methods of investigating wind structure in the field are reviewed, and comments are made on the need to study conditions in urban areas. Author
