© 2020 Xiaodan Li et al. The outdoor wind environment is one of the most important factors influencing the biological environment and human comfort. The campus of China University of Mining & Technology (Beijing) (CUMTB) is the case study for this research. PHOENICS simulation software was used to carry out a numerical simulation study of the outdoor wind environment. The pedestrian-level wind (PLW) environments for both winter and summer were investigated. Based on the numerical simulation results, the overall evaluation and subregional analysis of the campus' current outdoor wind environment were carried out. Then, according to the results and problems of wind environment assessment, improvement measures and strategies of outdoor wind environment in universities are proposed from the aspects of campus planning, single building form, and greening configuration. The main goal is to further improve the outdoor space and environment of universities in Beijing and provide general guidelines to improve the quality of the universities' wind environment effectively. The strategies can provide a reference for the same type of campus on wind environment renovation and improvement. This study can also provide data support and reference significance for outdoor thermal environment/pedestrian environment research.
