Picture of model of urban architecture

Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper investigates the accuracy of implicit large eddy simulations (ILES) in compressible turbulent boundary layers (TBL). ILES are conducted in conjunction with Monotonic Upstream-Centred Scheme for Conservation Laws (MUSCL) and Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory (WENO), ranging from 2nd to 9th-order. The excess artificial dissipation occurring at low Mach numbers is counter-balanced by using low Mach corrections. The study concludes that high-order ILES provide accurate predictions of TBL even on relatively coarse grids.
