Coastal zones have always attracted a large number of people because of the resources and the recreations that they provide. This highly increasing population living along the coastline, increases the demands for construction of restaurants, beach houses and pavilions at the beach-dune interface. These structures block the wind flow and change the airflow patterns which in turn alter the sediment transport pathways and influence the aeolian sand dunes. Figure 1 schematically shows the mean flow field around a cubic building which contains recirculation zones on the top, front and sides of the structure and in the downstream cavity region.
