In the area of residential green belt planning, most planners pay attention to the landscape function of green belts, while few researchers consider the impact of green belt on the concentration of fine particulate matter in the air. Based on site investigation, information about plants, buildings and weather in the selected area were collected, combined with air pollution measurement, four CFD models with different green belt composition were built and simulated. The results showed that at the residential cluster scale, green belts had two effects on fine particles: blocking and agglomeration. Under the two effects, the role of green belts in reducing fine particulate pollution was not always positive, improper green belts could even aggravate air pollution. This study discussed the impact of different greenbelt composition on PM2.5 concentration in residential clusters by CFD simulation, providing theoretical and methodological support for green belt planning and healthy city planning.
