Discrete Optimization in Architecture: Building Envelope

This publication explores the tremendous modular structures that meet standards: they permit the construction of structurally sound free-form constructions, and they're constituted of as few different types of modules as attainable. Divided into components, it offers Pipe-Z (PZ) and Truss-Z (TZ) platforms. PZ is extra basic and varieties spatial mathematical knots by means of assembling one form of unit (PZM).

Note that the height of the wake zone is equal to the height of the structure. Figure 13 shows the re-circulation zones for a typical building. C.

For instance, Timofeyef (1998) evaluated the wind flow around a five-storey high development in Kazakhstan and produced full-scale results, wind tunnel data and numerical results by using the discrete vortex method (two-dimensional flow). Surprisingly enough, computational results compare better with corresponding full-scale data than the latter with wind-tunnel results! This means that this rather crude computational approach provides more representative results than wind tunnel testing, at least for this particular case.

The formulas for Do and Dd recommended in ASHRAE (1999) are: Do = 1 + 13M 2 Dd = B1S /MAe (11) (12) where B1 is the distance dilution parameter, S is the stretched string distance from stack to receptor and M is the ratio of exhaust gas velocity, we, to the mean wind speed at the building height, UH.
