The velocity field in a naturally ventilated building within urban-like arrays was explored by means of large-eddy simulations. The reduced-scale building models were utilized to examine the impact of the geometric conditions in surrounding buildings and cross-ventilating windows on flow statistics as well as instantaneous velocity fields in a sheltered building. The obtained results indicated how the incoming flow was propagated in the target building. Although simplified conditions were employed, the present findings of the features of cross-ventilation are valuable to consider the effect of outdoor turbulent flow to indoor wind environment.
