Environmental aerodynamics has progressed in the last decade, particularly regarding the computational front. The course will present the fundamentals of both experimental and computational approaches along with examples from actual studies involving pedestrian level winds, comfort levels, relevant legislation and remedial measures. Pollutant dispersion in the building environment will be also presented and discussed along with the methodologies available to deal with potentially critical design problems, which if left unattended, jeopardize the successful operation of new construction developments.
Wind energy production involves special wind turbine structures, the design of which requires special reliability assessment. Experimental and computational approaches will be presented and case studies will be analyzed in order to make the participants familiar with the uncertainties involved and the design methodologies currently available.
