Abstract

This paper presents the results of CFD prediction of snowdrift around a cubic building model, and examines a new snowdrift model developed by the present authors. Numerical results using this new model are compared with results obtained by the previous model and field measurements. It is confirmed that the predicted snowdrift patterns, i.e., erosion around the upwind corners and deposition in front of and behind the model obtained from the new CFD method, correspond well with those of the field measurements.
