Abstract: Numerical CFD experiments were performed on dairy cow house ¿Ossekampen¿ of Wageningen University to investigate the influences of surrounding buildings and wind direction on pressure distribution on the building envelope and on wind induced ventilation rate. A qualitative verification of air flow patterns was performed with smoke experiments. East of the cow house some adjacent buildings were present. With east wind, a clear wind `shadow¿ was found as a projection of the two buildings NE of the cow house. This shadow shifts with the wind direction.
