Abstract:
Implementation of a design process for evaluating, using analytical methods, the shape and layout of fašade elements, in terms of elements dimensions and ventilated cavity geometry, in order to avoid the formation of flow induced acoustic sources which lead to the problem of aero-acoustic resonance. The process can be utilised to enable engineers to design fašade elements which will not be affected by wind induced noise and to identify in the existing fašade configurations which is the key element to modify in order to eliminate the problem. The aim is to avoid that post-installation mitigation measures need to be put in place in case wind noise on building facades occurs.
