Numerical Analysis Seminars: Turbulent flow in urban street canyons: predictability and vortex interactions
17 June 2014 16:00 in CM 105
The street canyon is the basic unit of modern cities. It has received
attention from urban planners, mechanical engineers and fluid dynamicists.
From a fluid-dynamical perspective, street-canyon flow, on account of its
heterogeneity, presents difficulties that are not encountered in canonical
turbulent and boundary-layer flows.
In this talk I review the computational modelling of turbulent flow in
street canyons and discuss recent results on predictability and vortex
interactions. Prospects for future research directions will be discussed.
