Chapter 2

Aerodynamic Architectural Design

Abdel Rahman Elbakheit

Abstract

This chapter attempts to scan various wind aerodynamic responses relevant to buildings that could be utilised for wind energy generation. It highlights some natural ventilation mechanisms and processes that allow continuous air streams amenable to further streamlining for wind energy generation. This study analyses various types of flows and their characteristics. Further streamlining of architectural forms to generate optimal wind flows prior to energy harvesting is discussed.
