Study A Study Of Air Current Distribution Characteristics In Areas Near Highway Embankment Walls Using A Wind Tunnel Test And Computational Fluid Dynamics
The height and length of high embankment walls affect ambient air current flow. This study examined changes in
wind velocity before and after the construction of a highway embankment wall. A wind tunnel test and computational fluid
dynamics were employed to look at the characteristics of the air current flow surrounding the highway embankment wall.
According to the results of the analysis, the highway embankment wall greatly affected the changes in the air currents. In
particular, when a highway embankment wall is constructed, wind velocity decreases by 10 to 40%, according to its location.
