Call for papers: “Physical and Numerical Simulation of the Flow around Porous Elements and Double Skin Façades”

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Porous elements are becoming increasingly popular in modern architecture. In particular, porous barriers are often mounted on bridge decks in order to protect vehicles against strong cross-winds while porous claddings can be used in order to visually emphasize the volume of framed structures. Their use is becoming particularly important also as external layer of double skin façades, often used to improve the building performance in terms of internal comfort and energy consumption.

This Special Issue will collect contributions focused on the simulation of the flow around porous elements and double-skin façades by means of both physical and numerical models. Contributions might include fundamental research as well as detailed descriptions of case studies, developing cutting-edge methodologies for their analysis.
