Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The booklet identifies professional contributions that wind engineers can make to urban planning and design in collaboration with city governments, urban planners, and designers. It sets out tools and quantitative techniques used by wind engineers in urban aerodynamics, and explains how these are preferable to an intuitive approach. Among the topics are historic considerations of wind in urban planning, pedestrian level winds, human thermal comfort in naturally ventilated spaces, dispersional modeling in boundary layer wind tunnels, urban wind power, quantifying wind effects, and computational fluid dynamics.
