CAE for Architecture & Construction

bridge simulation

CFD, FEA and Thermal Analysis Software for Architecture and Construction

Enabling them to design, optimize, and validate, simulation gives an unmatched flexibility to both owner and contractor to meet their goals. This massively reduces the risks related to cost increases, project extensions, and design change requests. Strengthening the relationship between design and construction, 3D modeling and computer simulations are a part of the new approaches to architecture and construction engineering. Used in the research for sustainable buildings and other physical structures all over the world, as well as supporting smart city engineering, computational simulation has become essential for many architects and engineers. In this white paper, discover the top tips for architecture, engineering, and construction.

SimScale has many simulation capabilities for Architecture and Construction, including:

  • Construction material analysis
  • Vibrations
  • Flow simulation (air, water, gas, etc.)
  • Gas distribution
  • Pressure & velocity fields
  • Temperature analysis
  • Nodal & elemental stress
  • Natural eigenfrequencies
  • MRF zone for rotation

Case Study

Increasing the Efficiency of a Ventilation System

Not requiring classical building heating due to excellent thermal insulation, the so-called passive houses need, in turn, a complex ventilation system that is often criticized because it doesn’t allow a natural fresh air supply. A new approach to guarantee the fresh air supply and the heat distribution across all rooms is to use a dual wall on the outer walls of the building. Austrian company IBEEE used SimScale to investigate and quantify the performance of the passive fanless system based on flow simulations.
