Using flow simulation for wind analysis in urban environments

Question asked by Legt Chevrollier on Sep 3, 2015

Dear Solid Workers.


I was wondering if somebody has been using Solids Works Flow simulation to simulate wind speeds at the pedestrian level in urban environments?
I am familiar with using Flow Simulation for analysis of pressure on buildings.
But what about an analysis of wind speeds at the height of 1 meter (pedestrian height)?


Which wind direction should be taken for this kind of analysis? The annual dominant wind direction for the picked location?
Which wind speed should be used? The annual mean (average) wind speed for the picked location?


Thank you for the reply.
