Abstract

The atmospheric boundary layer wind flow around a bluff body under open terrain conditions is simulated using a parallel fast vortex method. The simulation uses two N-body solvers for computing vortex interactions: one solver computes vortex interactions in a thin region around the ground and building boundaries, while another handles the interactions in the exterior region of the flow. This latter solver represents the most computationally expensive part of the computation. The details of the data structures and the inter-level and intra-level communications required during computations are described in details.
