Chapter 3 Pedestrian Level Winds. pp. 17 - Chapter 4 Local and Panel Wind Loads. pp. 19 - The main purpose of this study is to reveal the relationship between the building density and the average wind velocity at pedestrian level in residential neighborhoods. This paper firstly presents the results of wind tunnel tests on 22 residential neighborhoods selected from actual Japanese by: To study pedestrian level winds, 1) meteorological data of a specific location to determine the probability of effects, 2) information on the interaction between the building and wind (aerodynamic information) and 3) a comfort criterion are needed (Blocken, Stathopoulos, & Beeck, ).Cited by: As part of the preliminary study, a quantitative pedestrian comfort evaluation including a wind tunnel test will be undertaken. This study will include a minimum of 15 sensor locations. The focus of this initial study is to recommend appropriate mitigation measures that involve changes to .

Pedestrian Wind Study RWDI# Page 2 3. METHODOLOGY Wind Tunnel Testing As shown in Figures 1a and 1b, the wind tunnel model included the project site and all relevant surrounding buildings and topography within a foot radius of the study site. The mean speed profile. The city of San Francisco enacted a pedestrian-level wind ordinance as part of its city and county municipal code in The purpose of this paper is to present in engineering detail the wind tunnel testing procedure and associated analysis which allows scaling of the wind- tunnel measurements. To study pedestrian level winds, 1) meteorological data of a spec ific location to deter mine the probab ility of ef fects, 2) information on the interact ion between the build ing and wind (ae. pedestrian level wind (PLW) study in support of Site Plan Approval for a mixed-use development at 12 Stirling Avenue in Ottawa, Ontario. Our mandate within this study, as outlined in GWE proposal #P– REV 1, dated Janu , is to investigate pedestrian wind comfort within and.
