Due to climate change, extreme weather events pose a major thread to humanity. Our work focusses on the simulation of environmental related phenomena, such as urban wind fields and issues related to hydraulic engineering in mountainous regions. As a basis for the large-scale 3D fluid simulations, we propose an automatized geodata processing pipeline including the geometry of terrain and buildings. This new geodata processing framework is successfully used together with a new two-fluid Navier-Stokes solver to simulate the free surface flow in mountain valleys.
|Mr. Nicola Germano is a PhD student from the University of Chieti-Pescara with a background in Civil engineering. His research work is centered on the optimization of the influence of wind flows to perform an accurate evaluation of the energetic performance of buildings.|
|Mr. Simon Wenczowski has obtained his bachelor’s degree in Environmental engineering at the Technical University of Munich. The t opic of his master thesis covers the simulation of strongly three-dimensional free-surface flows in mountain terrain.|
