The work is a proposal of studying of technical and equations for meshes generation in different engineering problems, with later application in a case of turbulent flow in street canyons using k-epsilon turbulence model. It will be used the programs ANSYS ICEM-CFD for studying of mesh generation and FLUEN for the numerical simulation. The simulation results will be compared with available results in the literature for validation of mesh generation technical and numerical simulation used in the problem.
