Abstract

In this study a novel approach for modelling urban atmospheric flows is presented. It uses a modified general purpose CFD model with anisotropic mesh adaptivity. The effect of traffic induced turbulence is modelled through a two-fluid approach giving the ability to explicitly model the movement of individual vehicles. Results are presented from the application of the model to a real urban area.
