Research Reports from Z. Bu and Co-Authors Provide New Insights into Environmental Building

"In the present study, we performed both wind tunnel experiments and numerical simulations on a scale model with the focus on wind-driven natural ventilation in an areaway-attached basement with a single-sided opening. In the experiments, the mean value of the effective ventilation rate, purging flow rate (PFR) was measured for nine wind incidence angels based on the homogeneous emission rate method," scientists in Komaba, Japan report.
"The experimental results were used to validate two numerical approaches: Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) modeling and large-eddy simulation (LES). The influences of inflow turbulent fluctuations for LES modeling were also examined....
