Applications of Environmental Aerodynamics
Applications of environmental aerodynamics, namely pedestrian level winds and dispersion of pollutants in the building environment, are discussed with particular emphasis to suitable engineering design issues and practices. Both experimental and computational approaches are presented with reference to particular case studies.
