Abstract

The prediction and the assessment of pedestrian wind environment around buildings using numerical simulation have become practical at design stages. Therefore, the methodology for the prediction and the assessment of pedestrian wind environment is needed. The article describes the basic methodology for assessing the situation of pedestrian zones wind comfort using advanced numerical simulation technology. The feature of the methodology is that it is based on results of the cross comparison between the results of CFD predictions, wind tunnel tests and field measurements. The aerodynamic model of the city of Moscow with the surrounding territories, taking into account the terrain and existing buildings, is shown.
