Abstract: Accurate CFD simulations of urban airflow are of significant importance for a large variety of environmental studies and associated building energy consumption. As a relatively fast and reliable turbulence model compared to Standard k-ε turbulence model (SKE) and Large Eddy Simulation (LES), the improved Zero-equation (ZEQ) turbulence model has gained attention to simulate outdoor airflow and contaminant dispersion. This study evaluates the performance of four commonly used ZEQ turbulence models applied to flow around urban environments and analyze their sensitivity and uncertainty for different airflow configurations. These configurations entail airflow around (1) an isolated building, (2) regular blocks, and (3) building complexes. The results show that average computational time for these three turbulence modeling approaches (ZEQ: SKE: LES) scaled approximately to a 1:5:30 ratio, which demonstrated the computational competitiveness of ZEQ as a fast turbulence model for prediction o
