SimScale Releases Multi-Direction Pedestrian Wind Comfort Analysis

New offering reduces the cost of complex calculations

8 October, 2019

MUNICH–SimScale, the provider of the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation, today released new analysis capabilities for calculating multi-direction pedestrian wind comfort. The new offering was created to support civil and wind engineers, urban planners, and architects to better anticipate how their projects will impact the comfort of pedestrians in surrounding areas. Additionally, the tool accelerates project completion and automatically computes wind comfort criteria including Lawson, Davenport, and NEN 8100. SimScale now allows for simulations of up to 36 wind directions simultaneously and is in accordance with recognized wind engineering standards and best practices.
