The objective of the webinar would be to showcase how we could use CFD simulation methodology to understand how wind flows around buildings and use this information to design them to withstand wind loads and also to improve the comfort of pedestrians moving between the buildings.

Building a new office or residential tower would generally alter the wind flow patterns around the site building. Before commencing the construction, it is beneficial to understand how the new wind patterns would influence pedestrian traffic into the building. Such an analysis can help identify and mitigate any windy regions created by the presence of buildings.

The present webinar aims to demonstrate the use of computational fluid dynamics in understanding the flow patterns around buildings. we will generate a geometry in Ansys Spaceclaim and generate a structured mesh using blocking technology. The mesh will be solved in Ansys Fluent to capture relevant flow phenomena.

Key takeaway from this webinar:

  1. The usefulness of simulation in solving problems difficult to reproduce experimentally.
  2. Visualization of complex flow patterns around buildings.
  3. The usefulness of Ansys CFD workflow to simulate complex fluid dynamic flow fields.

Presenter: Mr. Vijay Kumar Veera, EIT Lecturer.
