Abstract

A novel approach to prevent the flow detachment, inspired by synthetic jet technology, is developed and analyzed with respect to the building shape. Two different models are developed to simulate the flow around the baseline building and compare it to the flow pattern obtained by introducing an air duct on the top of it, which is blowing a fixed air mass flow rate. The analysis provided the velocity profiles on different positions on the roof: a reduction in the flow separation would enable an installation of a wind turbine with a lower support and the interception of a uniform accelerated wind speed provided by the hill effect.
