Title: Urban Wind Energy Evaluation with Urban Morphology
Abstract: Urban wind development is gathering energy and passion these years and is good for sustainable cities. This study tries to evaluate wind energy potential with study of urban form in a block scale (500 m*500 m). CFD method is used for wind flow simulation. CFD parameter settings were validated and evaluated with wind tunnel experiment. Simple building forms (1–3 buildings) were firstly tested for exploring the impact of building form on wind potential. Space over roof is proved to be most effective and practical position for developing wind energy in the urban environment. Ideal urban forms were tested for evaluating the impact of one single morphological parameter on wind potential over roof. Real urban forms were then evaluated and compared in order to reveal the impact of different urban form parameter on wind potential. Urban form unit models are then considered to understand the impact of a certain urban form feature on wind potential. Finally, a block model in Beijing is given for urban wind evaluation case study, including wind potential evaluation of every building roof in the model, wind turbine position evaluation, and economical cost analysis.
Experience: From 2011-2015 he did his PhD research on the impact of urban morphology on wind potential, in INSA, Universiy of Toulouse. Then from 2015 to 2020 he was a lecturer in North China University of Technology, with research on built wind environment assessment. From 2020 till now he has been working as an associated Prof in Soochow University, China, and acts as the chair of Built Wind Environment Lab of the university. He has published more than 20 scientific papers, 2 books and charged 3 provincial or national scientific fund projects.
