This model describes boundary conditions for
pressure, enthalpy, and species concentration that can be obtained
from weather data. The model is identical to
except that it adds the wind pressure to the
pressure at the fluid ports
The pressure p at the fluid ports is computed as:
p = pw + Cp,act Cs v2 ρ ⁄ 2,
where pw is the atmospheric pressure from the weather bus, v is the wind speed from the weather bus, and ρ is the fluid density.
The wind pressure coefficient Cp,act is a function of the surface wind incidence
angle and is defined relative to the surface azimuth (normal to the surface is 0).
The wind incidence angle
incAng is computed from the wind direction obtained from the weather file
with the surface azimuth
azi as the base of the angle.
The relation between the wind pressure coefficient Cp,act and the incidence angle
is defined by a cubic hermite interpolation of the users table input.
Typical table values can be obtained from the "AIVC guide to energy efficient ventilation",
appendix 2 (1996). The default table is appendix 2, table 2.2, face 1.
The wind speed modifier Cs can be used to incorporate the effect of the surroundings on the local wind speed.
incAngSurNor for the wind incidence angle relative to the surface normal
are measured counter-clock wise.
The figure below shows an example entry, which is also used in the model
The wind incidence angle and surface azimuths are defined as follows:
The wind indicience angle is obtained directly from the weather data bus
This variable contains the data from the weather data file that was read, such as a TMY3 file.
In accordance to TMY3, the data is as shown in the table below.

This model differs from Buildings.Fluid.Sources.Outside_CpLowRise by the calculation of the wind pressure coefficient Cp,act. The wind pressure coefficient is defined by a user-defined table instead of a generalized equation such that it can be used for all building sizes and situations, for shielded buildings, and for buildings with non-rectangular shapes.
