Abstract

The strong wind fields around Miyajima in Hiroshima Bay were simulated numerically during Typhoon Songda in 2004. The PSU/MM5 model was used for the calculation of meso-scale regions. The strong wind that passed over the sea and blew into the Hiroshima Bay was simulated. The predicted wind fields were examined comparing with the observed records and the field investigation of damage to the houses and buildings. The calculated maximum wind speed map was well correlated to the distribution of damage rate by strong wind in Hiroshima Prefecture. Unsteady wind fields were also computed by Large Eddy Simulation in the fine region around Miyajima. The local wind characteristics caused by the topography around Itsukushima Shrine were investigated by using the calculated results. The down flow along the valley to the south of the shrine was simulated in the neutral atmospheric condition. The local wind flows around the shrine were discussed.
