Abstract: THIS STUDY EXAMINED THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE URBAN FORM-BASED ADAPTATIONS TO EXTREME SEA LEVEL EVENTS (ESLES) PROPOSED BY PREVIOUS STUDIES. COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMIC (CFD) SIMULATIONS ARE EMPLOYED IN THIS RESEARCH AS THE MAIN METHOD TO EXAMINE THE HYPOTHESES. THE SIMULATIONS INDICATE THAT (1) THE IMPACT OF ESLES ON THE BUILDINGS CLOSE TO SEAWATER CAN BE REDUCED BY ABOUT 8.5% IF THE URBAN BLOCK TYPOLOGY CHANGES; (2) SHIFTING THE BUILDINGS? ORIENTATION IS ALSO AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO ENHANCE WATERFRONTS? CAPACITY TO RESPOND TO ESLES; (3) MODIFYING U-SHAPED BUILDINGS CAN EFFECTIVELY REDUCE THE IMPACT OF ESLES, AND IF A U-SHAPED BUILDING IS DIVIDED INTO THREE INDIVIDUAL PARTS, THE IMPACT OF ESLES CAN DECREASE BY MORE THAN 10%. MEANWHILE, THE APPLICATION CASE STUDY SHOWS THAT URBAN FORM BASED ADAPTATIONS COULD BE THEORETICALLY APPLIED IN WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS AND THE IMPACT OF ESLES CAN BE REDUCED BY THE APPLICATION OF URBAN FORM-BASED ADAPTATIONS.
