    Porosity, porosity distribution, porous shape, porous size, thickness of shield, shield height &width, and shield orientation are the factors that influence the performance of porous wind shields. Among them, porosity is the most important factor in determining the performance of porous shields. However shield height & width have major impacts on the performance of shields. The remaining factors play less significant influences on the performance of the shield, but they remain researching interests to be further studied.
