Human-centric design is the holistic approach to the design of spaces and cities that accounts for occupant health and wellbeing, microclimate, and long-term adaptations to our changing climate and extreme weather events.
Atkins has been leveraging cloud-native design and simulation tools, such as SimScale, to develop an ecosystem of advanced applications for optimizing the human-centric design aspects of their projects. These include outdoor comfort apps that predict the Universal Thermal Comfort Index (UTCI) using the API in SimScale, as well as others that predict energy, water use, and carbon savings over the lifetime of buildings and structures.
In this live webinar and panel discussion, Atkins shows how they are implementing advanced concepts in design thinking, physics-based simulation, and big data techniques to leverage unique insights for creating a more sustainable built environment.
