charltonjames is on a distinguished road

i am planning on using Star-CCM+ to model wind flow in city centre squares. However, before i do this, i am trying to establish an accurate formular for wind flow in urban areas. Thanks to another forum user (highnelly) i have the following formular for rural areas;

The following are the equations you need fro your wind profile in a rural (barren location) so they may need to be modified for city region:

where is your ref vertical height, is your roughness height, is von Karman constant; is your ref wind speed, is turb model constant; and is your frictional velocity.

Can anyone help out???
