QUIC-PRESSURE

Using the mean 3D velocity field produced by QUIC-URB, QUIC-PRESSURE solves for the 3D pressure fields through use of the pressure Poisson equation.  Pressures can be used to help determine building leakage, as well as wind loading.  More details on the pressure solver equations and evaluation studies can be found in Gowardhan et al (2006).

Capabilities

  • Computes 3D pressure fields in and around buildings.
  • Computes pressure on building surfaces.

 

QUIC-PRESSURE Examples

Surface pressures for flow within a built-up urban area.
