LES (Large Eddy Simulation) has bben used to simulate cross ventilation under various wind direction angles. A new model, named local similarity model of cross ventilation, is proposed to estimate cross-ventilation flow rate and inflow angle at opening. In order to validate the proposed model, a wind tunnel experiment using a building model was carried out. The results confirm that dynamic similarity is established almost regardless of wind direction angle and position of the opening.
