Building layout is one of the most important factors of residential outdoor wind environment. Existing researches on the impact of building layout mainly focus on a certain layout or an actual case, which lacks comparisons and analysis of different typical models. Three typical residential models with different layouts are established in this paper. Based on the meteorological data in Shanghai, the influences of different layouts in different seasons are analyzed through the numerical simulation. The study helps to provide a reference for architecture design.
