Abstract: Unstructured & improper planning of urban morphologies (geometry & placement) is common in urbanization & the buildings' roughness & geometry within have caused a host of ventilation-related problems. This study postulates that there is an association between certain morphological variables & urban wind flow & one of the morphological variables Gross Building Coverage Ratio (GBCR) has been singled out for a preliminary parametric numerical study here. From the results of the study, interesting trends can be garnered & this supports the high possibility of development of an overall ventilation potential model using the various morphological variables (in form of indices) as independent variables for input. This will be useful for development of climate-responsive design & planning regulations specific to high-density residential estates in tropical Singapore. © 2012 ASCE.
