Abstract

The study of effects of wind flow surrounding the rural house become the focus of the present study. Post windstorm site-survey shows that most damages part of the roof is over the kitchen house and not only core house. However, the previous studies are limited to the high-rise building and low-rise building without extended room (kitchen house) rather than the rural house in the Northern region of Peninsula Malaysia. The numerical study using CFD simulation was performed to simulate the wind flow toward rural house, resulting a pressure distribution surrounding the house and validated with the wind tunnel test. Therefore, the study is conducted to investigate the effect of house features namely overhang, roof pitch, gap height and position of kitchen house on the wind flow surrounding the rural house using CFD. The steady-RANS equation using RNG
