Analysis of the influence of unsteady flow characteristics on the exterior convective heat transfer coefficients of a cubic building with CFD

Thijs Defraeye, Bert Blocken, Jan Carmeliet & Thijs Defraeye
Convective heat transfer from exterior and interior surfaces of the building envelope to the surrounding air is usually modelled by convective heat transfer coefficients, which depend on the wind speed and air flow pattern near the surface in case of forced convection. These coefficients are required for energy performance analysis of buildings and to asses the hygrothermal behaviour of building envelopes. The convective heat transfer coefficients at exterior surfaces are mostly described by empirical correlations...
