I have been looking at the Simscale results presented for AIJ case E
AIJ: Case E | Architecture & Construction | SimScale
Firstly I would like to say thankyou for presenting your results in detail - its very useful.
Looking at Fig6 and Fig10 in particular - I wonder if these are the right way around? just instinctively looking at the regions of high velocity, it looks like Fig6 should be westerly and Fig 10 should be easterly? I think the terminology is confusing for winds because (to my mind) westerly winds means blowing from the west (to the east), and not in a westerly direction.
The other point that I was wondering about is how you arrived at the turbulence profile for this case in Ref Validation for Pedestrian Wind Comfort: AIJ Case E | SimScale
…because in the AIJ case E data, they provide a turbulence profile, which is between roughly k=0.12 and k=0.54 (the way I calculated it based on their k/U^2 tabulated values). The values they provided seems very high to me, whereas your values between 0.04% and 0.2% seems quite low. So I would be interested if you have used the AIJ turbulence data or used your own assumptions for the turbulent profile. Thanks very much, Giles.
