Abstract

Worldwide many research efforts are focusing on solutions for energy-efficient and environmental- friendly buildings. This paper presents a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study of the wind conditions in passages between parallel buildings with common rectangular floor plans to assess the wind energy potential. The influence of the building geometrical parameters on the wind speed distribution in the middle of the passage is evaluated in order to define the most advantageous configurations in terms of wind speed amplification. An estimate of the wind energy potential is provided for the geometry with the highest amplification factors, using statistical meteorological data of Eindhoven.
