Dear All,

I am a new user of OpenFOAM and I would like to learn how to simulate Urban Environment with buildings and trees in OpenFOAM. Im a student working on the role of obstacles on windflow.

Please help!

Hi,
there are various threads on CFD-online (even explicitly on OF)
Mesh generator with OpenFoam / Urban Design

http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ma...banAreaNiigata
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ma...ngInCityBlocks

search for "wind energy", "terrain" or "urban"

terrain import openFoam

there is a good thread on Askervein Hill and a thesis with lots of material

I do not know if http://www.forwind.de/sowe/Site/Home.html =>"Symposium on OpenFOAM in Wind Energy" was a success

you can also look @ "OF workshop" material / presentations http://www.openfoamworkshop2013.org/ http://www.openfoamworkshop2013.org/...p?Main=1&sub=2
