dc.description.abstractA high-resolution large eddy simulation (LES) of wind flow over the Oklahoma City downtown area was performed to explain the effect of the building height on wind flow over the city. Wind flow over cities is vital for pedestrian and traffic comfort as well as urban heat effects. The average southerly wind speed of eight meters per second was used in the inflow section. It was found that heights and distribution of the buildings have the greatest impact on the wind flow patterns. The complexity of the flow field mainly depended on the location of buildings relative to each other and their heights. A strong up and downflows in the wake of tall buildings as well as large-scale coherent eddies between the low-rise buildings were observed. It was found out that high-rise buildings had the highest impact on the urban wind patterns. Other characteristics of urban canopy flows, such as wind shadows and channeling effects, are also successfully captured by the LES. The LES solver was shown to be a powerful tool for understanding urban canopy flows; therefore, it can be used in similar studies (e.g., other cities, dispersion studies, etc.) in the future.en_US
