- A boundary layer approach for the solution of the flow field induced over a two-dimensional surface obstruction, such as a building or other man-made structure, is proposed. Adopting a specific geometry in the form of a semi-elliptical cylinder, the characteristics of atmospheric shear flow over a rough terrain are coupled with the well-known boundary layer equations. Two approaches are presented to incorporate the pressure field and boundary conditions which exist within the large viscous region over the obstruction. The first considers a region in the immediate vicinity of the body in which the pressure distribution and outer boundary condition on the velocity are computed from potential theory for flow over the elliptical cylinder. The second approach considers a much larger region of influence, extending from the surface to the undisturbed flow at large heights above the obstruction. Methods which appear to provide an improved theoretical model of the flow over the ellipse, such as a technique for simulating the effect of the seperation regions upstream and downstream of the body, are also presented.
