Simulating Outdoor Thermal Comfort

Performing external comfort calculations using engineering simulation on the cloud.

Outdoor thermal comfort assessments are increasingly used in the design of buildings and cities. Traditionally, evaluating the wind component of the Universal Thermal Comfort Index (UTCI) is dependent on on-premise CFD software that takes days or weeks to simulate. This white paper describes how simulation on the cloud, using Graphic Processor Unit (GPU) accelerated physics is a leap forward in evaluating outdoor comfort and heat island reduction strategies for architects and engineers.
