Lattice-Boltzmann-based large-eddy simulation of high-rise building aerodynamics with inlet turbulence reconstruction

Boltzmann-based Large-Eddy Simulation approach for wind load prediction on high-rise building is proposed and validated. An extension of the original incompressible Synthetic Eddy Method to reconstruct inlet turbulence is proposed within the Lattice-Boltzmann framework, including a low-noise frozen density variant. Extensive successful comparisons with experimental data are carried out, for both quantities defined on the building surface and in its wake. A detailed sensitivity analysis of the results with respect to inlet turbulence reconstruction, boundary conditions at the building surface and grid resolution is also provided. An almost unique set of comparisons with experimental data is presented, including mean and rms values, spectra, but also peak values of pressure at the building surface.
