The rapid growth of computational wind engineering (CWE) has led to an expansion of the research fields of wind engineering. CWE has made it possible to analyze various physical processes associated with wind climate around humans and in urban areas. This paper reviews recent achievements in CWE and its application to wind climate in scales ranging from human to urban scale.
