Abstract

This paper briefly discusses the need of high-resolution whole-building numerical modelling in the context of climate change. High-resolution whole-building numerical modelling can be used for detailed analysis of the potential consequences of climate change on buildings and to evaluate remedial measures. This discussion is certainly not intended to be complete. Rather it is intended to provide some views on climate change and built environment from a computational building physics perspective. After this brief discussion, a case study of application and validation of a high-resolution sub-model is presented, in which Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to calculate wind-driven rain (WDR) deposition on a monumental tower building in the Netherlands.
