Applications of Numerical Simulations in Built Environment
Different types of numerical simulations have been in use for the design and performance analysis of built environment for some time. Most of these simulations are based on simplistic models and methods, such as steady-state approach, which strictly limits the reliability of the predicated results. In the present study, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based solvers have been used to evaluate the design and performance of a range of built environment applications. The solvers used in the present study have been shown to predict the performance of the built environment with reasonable accuracy, using more realistic modelling techniques. It is expected that the use of CFD for performance analysis of built environment will significantly increase as a result of this study.
