The Effect of Von Karman Vortex Street on Building Ventilation

  title={The Effect of Von Karman Vortex Street on Building Ventilation},
  author={P. P. Kumar}
Karman vortex street principle to maximise air flow into buildings. Von Karman Vortex Street is a succession of eddies created close to the building that break away alternatively from both sides. A case study of 2 rectangular buildings placed at a certain distance from each other is presented and the effect on ventilation is determined. The stagnation region appears in the closest region downstream of the bluff body (building) and is a factor which considerably influences vortex shedding and… CONTINUE READING
