SimScale CPD: Simulation for Environmental Design

A Free CPD From SimScale Certified by The CPD Certification Service

The Simulation for Environmental Design CPD by SimScale is an introduction to the topic with an emphasis on early-stage design and the use of specialist modeling tools. The CPD covers the importance and need for simulation tools: both for performance and compliance. If you are an architect, engineer or work in sustainability, this CPD will illustrate simulation for urban microclimate: thermal comfort and air quality.

CPD Learning Objectives from SimScale

Attendees will receive a certificate of CPD credit, and become well versed in the following:

  • To understand what Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is. 
  • To learn about the different applications and uses of CFD software in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC).
  • To see examples of where CFD has influenced the design of a building, especially at the early stages.
  • To learn how CFD can be used to model and simulate the external and internal environment, specifically the urban microclimate, indoor thermal comfort, and air quality.
  • To understand how CFD can be used to demonstrate compliance with building rating systems, standards, and regulations.
  • To understand the difference between a model and a simulation.
