AbstractWind environment around the base of a row of identical tall buildings was investigated through wind-tunnel experiments. Statistical records of wind speeds and wind angles at the pedestrian level were obtained with a split-fibre probe for the side-by-side arrangement of buildings. This enabled us to evaluate the wind environment with two different pedestrian-level wind descripters, namely a quartile-level wind speed descripter and an "effective wind speed". The presented results showed how pedestrian-level winds were affected by locating a tall building in a row of identical buildings. © 1995.
