Investigation of the effect of the length of the street on the flow of air in them.

M. Volik.


The paper compares the results of mathematical modeling of aerodynamics typical urban developments with different length of the streets. The calculations were performed using the redistributable package OpenFoam and remote console access to the control node computing cluster BL2x220 Cluster Console Web-laboratory Unihub ( program "University cluster" ( Consider a single street with houses of the same height at its sides, a single street with houses of different heights at its sides and two parallel streets located on a hillside. Comparison of simulation results in two-dimensional and three-dimensional approximation showed that the length of the street has a significant impact on the qualitative and quantitative flow pattern inside the streets and on buildings.
