AbstractFundamentals, Applications and Project works in the area of CFD in buildings.
ObjectiveUnderstanding:
- Basic principles of fluid flow & heat transfer
- Basic concepts of CFD
- Validation and verification, practical guidelines

Application and project works of CFD in buildings including the fields of:
- Building aerodynamics
- Steady vs. unsteady wind loads on urban structures
- Air pollution and contaminant dispersion
- Indoor ventilation
- CFD for renewable energy (solar) in the urban physics
ContentI. Fundamentals
- Basic principles of fluid flow & heat transfer
- Laminar versus turbulent flow
- Forced vs. natural convection
- Basic concepts of CFD (Discretization, schemes, etc.)
- Turbulence modelling
- Near-wall treatment
- Validation and verification, practical guidelines

II. Applications
CFD for:
- Building aerodynamics
- Steady vs. unsteady wind loads on urban structures
- Air pollution and contaminant dispersion
- Indoor ventilation
- CFD for renewable energy in the urban physics: Wind loads on roof-mounted solar photovoltaic arrays, coupled solar-wind energy generation applications, etc.

III. Project work
