The paper is about enhancement of urban breathability in idealized street canyons by using the arcade design.

Highlights:

•This paper studied enhancement of urban breathability in idealized street canyons. •CFD predictions were validated with wind tunnel measured data. •VR, Q and ACH were analyzed to assess the PPL ventilation performance. •Using the arcade design is effective to augment ventilated flows over urban canyons. •Key design factors including H/W, h/w and H/h on the PPL aeration were examined.

Share and learn:

We have shown some examples of CFD simulation in the class. One of the cases is about the application of arcade design to improve urban ventilation and reduce air pollutant dispersion. However, there are more details that can be discussed in arcade design. Here’s what can we learn from this research paper.
